Student GPA

1. The research shows that was present shows that the people that went further with their education now rather than a few decades ago were more abundant. These people were more likely to make more money.

2. Students who get better grades are more likely to not only get into better colleges or be an indication that he or she will finish college but it also shows the people who will make the most money based on their grades.

3. The correlation between high school grades and overall educational attainment was strongest for minorities. By going to college you can earn more money and get a better job. For the minorities, the extra schooling did not allow them to earn more money. This could be because of the lack of opportunities that are offered to minorities.

Student Responsibility

1. I think student enrollment increased by 27% because of the things the school has to offer to the students. In the article, it says ¨ They rise in rank as they master skills and develop leadership traits. The article also says ¨ It teaches them self-reliance and self-discipline.

2. The purpose of this article is to inform the reader about the changes that happened to this school. It also explains how the alternation from a regular school to what seemed to be a military ran school affected the student's behavior and attitude towards others. This article explains how students can change from skipping school every day to get drunk or high to getting good grades and perfect attendance because of the environment.

3. When I go to school I am expected to be responsible. Not only for my school work or managing my time wisely but also for the things I say and my actions. Student responsibility is important because it allows students to see how it is to have to rely on themselves instead of others to get their school work done or use their time efficiently. Most high school students are going to school and working a part-time job at the very least (this doesn't include sports if they are interested). As a person who uses her time very efficiently, I think more class time to get work done or to ask for help with the teacher right in front of you would improve my understanding of things and make student responsibility easier to achieve.

college choice

1. I think that post-secondary schools should take social media into consideration because social media is such a big part of everyone's lives. Post-secondary schools should know what students they are bringing into their schools, they can tell this by looking at someone's social media. Social media accounts tell a lot about a person life.

2. I believe that kids care more about being funny and being liked by what they do even if it means not being themselves than not being who they are. People will put up a front that allows people to think they are this crazy, funny and energetic person when they are really none of those things because that is what they want people to think.

3.While you are in high school you are expected to be respectful and responsible. The same things are expected of students when they leave the school atmosphere and enter the workspace. I feel like school prepares you in some ways by helping realize what you might be interested in. On the other hand, I feel like it doesn't because they don't teach you things that are important like how to file your taxes or pay your bills.

Electric will cost $40 if I split it with my roommate I will only have to pay $20. Gas for the apartment is included in the rent. An oil change will cost me $16.29. The oil will cost $7.32 and the filter will cost 8.97. Food will cost me $166.90 a month. WIFI would cost me $80 the first month and $40 every following month.

Career Path

1. I am interested in biological oceanography. I like the water and I love animals. I want to learn all that I can, and by working in this field it would mean I could learn endlessly about not only animals but the environments they live in.

2. I would get my degree through The University of Alabama. This will help me because they have a wonderful marine biology program that will help me jump right into a job after graduation.

3. A marine biologist can make approximately $70,800 and go up to $124,680 a year.  After 10 years the most you could make was $1,246,800.

1. This ted talk is focused on advertisements.

2. During this ted talk, he talks about the secondary market and the retail market. The retail market is when the product is sold directly to the customers. The secondary market is pushed by the sneakerheads. http://www.cc.com/video-clips/zmctlr/the-daily-show-with-trevor-noah-just-for-kickz--the-face-of-the-secondary-sneaker-market

3. I would collect trucks because I could fix them and sell them for more money than I bought them for.

1. The article I choose last week is a blog. The purpose of the blog is to inform and entertain.

2.  The article uses cause and effect. I know this because they are explaining other people/ organizations reactions to how Donald Trump responded to the problem.

3. The self-driving cars were the most interesting to me. I think they would be a good idea because today everybody is on their phones when they are driving. This small action could possibly cause a big problem or accident. With self-driving cars you don't have to worry about the human factor of it.
