High school diploma

1. Having a high school diploma will helps people have better self-esteem. It also has an impact on relationships and family leadership. Also the more money you make the healthier you can become by eating the necessary nutrients and get the exercise that is needed every day.

2. Those 1million students who did not get a high school diploma cannot get jobs which make the percentage of unemployment higher. When someone makes more money, more money is taken out for taxes that go towards things that make the community a better place.

3. As a high school freshman, I know that sometimes school is hard. I struggle is some classes more than others. I also know that if I don't graduate on time it will impact my community. It makes the school look bad when their students don't graduate on time. The school and community will lose money when those freshmen don't graduate on time. The can offer programs to help those students who are struggling.

Public Service Announcement

1. The PSA was very effective. The most useful element was when the child was calling for his parents to wake up. Six people died on the scene of the crash. The person who caused the crash lived through it but her friends did not. The message they are trying to send is to not text and drive.

2. In this PSA it is showing that a parent's actions impact how their kids will act in the future. I think this PSA is very effective and will help educate families. In the PSA the children are mimicking everything their parent does. When the father throws his pop can on the ground so does his kid. When the dad is physically and mentally abusing his wife so is his son.

1. Grit is the perseverance or passion to achieve long term goals. Someone who has grit is more likely to be successful in the future. I agree with the phrase ¨entitled"child culture because kids think that they have are entitled to so much that they are not.

2. Gradual progress and consistent effort allows students to develop self discipline. Self discipline allows people to set goals for themselves and achieve those goal in the timeline that they have set for themselves. Having this trait will allow me to get my bills payed on time and do my taxes on time. If I didn't have this trait as an adult I would procrastinated everything and would not be successful.

3. I need to work on being more open minded because I am someone who feels like they with learn all that they can and that there is not a never ending supply of knowledge to learn. I feel like I am the. Eat at discipline or self discipline at least in some ways because if I fail at something I will always end up trying again until I get it right or done. http://www.successconsciousness.com/self_discipline.htm this link tells the importance of students with self discipline.

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.
