Summary
Black Boles in "What Could You Do with 20,000 Dollars" states many things you could with 20,000 dollars besides going to collage, students could be doing self learning and saving many in the process.Boles also states that collage might not even be for you, if is not clear what a student doesn't know what he/she wants to do than wait for collage and don't spend the money.Boles gives many examples of what 20,00 could do such as spending around 600 dollars on a whole book collection for self learning and for fun. If one on one teaching instead of a big class is better for a the student then take that money and get one on one teaching for a year which would 3000 dollars. Students also need money while they are out of school so the student could go invest in small or big companies to get their money back but also get more in return. If a student does not need to spend the money on a collage education that is not needed then don't.

Response
 "What Could You Do with 20,000 Dollars" by Black Boles, is a very good eyeopener which in this case the video is correct because many students don't even need to go to collage and need to use the 20,000 on other things the student might need instead. The student might not know what he/ she is going to do for a carrier, so why go? The student should wait for collage, it is not for them yet. If the student stills wants to learn then the student should get a private tutor. They can still get almost the same education for much cheeper and at your chosen times. For 1,500 dollars a student could by a new Mac book, photoshop, and other new technology for more learning opportunities just the student would in collage. 1,000 dollars would let you travel the country and go to meetings that would help you find job opportunities. Over all the main point is that a student dose not have to go spend 20,000 on collage, go spend it on things that will help explore the world and help you learn in the process.

  1. Cameron- make sure you spell the author's name correctly. Proofread because you do not want personal words, misspellings, etc... Also, make sure your topic sentence contains a why statement. College not collage. Make sure to end with a concluding sentence. You have good ideas, you just need the proofreading help.

    Clarify your topic sentence of your response. Eliminate the unnecessary words. GO beyond the examples that Boyle gives out. Use some of your own to show your connections and your point. Proofread here as well. Personal words. Spelling, etc...
