Click here to see my 30-second hook: IMG_1115

The topic of my 30-second hook was about the percentage of students who skip school every day. I was trying to tell people why this might be important.

I recorded myself about 10 times to I got to my final one.

I was talking real low and I looked at the paper a lot and around me a lot. I used good eye contact. I need to talk louder and stop and stay in one place.I did not look like I knew what I was doing or talking about. It seemed like I was making these up for the top of my head.

Dear Athsia,
I agree with you that many kids skip school. I believe that adults should try finding new ways to make students go to school. I think many kids might not go to school because they might have to go to work. They might not want to learn or they might just not care about education. I believe they should get the education that they need because they could get homeschooled or they could try some other way. Without education they would not be able to have a successful career. For me I’d rather go to school so that i could have a better career.
