Inquiry Question

Hello folks! I've posted an idea and a starting point, but here is my official project plan. I'd love to hear all your thoughts! My topic (as you may have noticed from the title) is why authors of fiction would want to gloss over an unpleasant or traumatic event, or glorify it in some way. Most people admit they love a happy ending, but many authors will write a story that involves a disturbing event, and they'll make the disturbing event seem exciting, attractive, or glamorous, for some odd...Read More...

Hello everyone! In this round, I will briefly give a few points about different fashion trends in history, but mainly, I will be focussing on fashion trends from my time period of study that have recently resurfaced. I have had a request to look at trends around the world, so I have touched on that subject as well. In this round I'll be focussing more on women's fashion, like in my last post. Here was what I found; (Note: any individuals portrayed in the images are not necessarily from the...Read More...

I chose this question because coffee is a major part of my daily routine. Normally I drink 2-3 cups a day. I've heard conflicting opinions on the radio, through media and my peers. These "facts" have ranged anywhere from it can shorten your lifespan to it can lengthen your lifespan. The point I'm trying to make is that I'm not sure who to believe and I want to look further into this and find out for once and for all if coffee is healthy or not.Read More...

Hey everyone! Here is my project plan for my new cycle of research. I'll be taking a completely different route than I did last cycle; my research will now be focused on social norms. My new inquiry question is: Why do we develop social norms and what is their influence on society? I'm really excited to pursue this topic because I think that there's a lot of different aspects to them and different examples, some of which have been controversial in our society. For my first round of research,...Read More...

It's common to face a situation that while we're having a conversation with someone we care, we keep trying to make them know more facets of ourselves, we share our emotion, hobbies, attitudes, and thoughts, but sometimes we still feel a sense of solitude and a feeling that they actually do not know us. What exactly is this need to be understood? What situation will make us feel that we are not understood in the relationship? And how can we let others know us? I’ll work on these questions in...Read More...

Hey everyone, For this next cycle, my question will be “What makes a good education?” I wanted to do something fairly different than what I have previously researched.

Hi everyone, I've decided to move on to a completely different inquiry topic for this cycle. My new question is: Why do some suffer from more from performance anxiety than others? The reason I want to look into this is because I'm in grade 8 piano right now, so I have to do a lot of competitions, recitals and festivals, and I tend to get extremely and unnecessarily nervous before performing. I also used to do a lot of public speaking when I was younger - I always did the Concours d'Arts...Read More...

I want to look into food/diet, mental health, technology, relationships, exercise etc. This is really interesting for me and I am excited to see what I learn. I hope this question will help me in my own routine and lifestyle to educate me on moderation and other aspects of healthy living. If you have any suggestions or comments on...Read More...

Inquiry Cycle 7

Juliana Nunes (Charles Best)
Hi Butterfly Effect, After a lot of thought, I decided to do a project focusing on mental health. Lately I have started to realize how serious and common this is, especially in high school. Because of this, I am going to centralize my project on teens and high school students. My inquiry question is: "Why are mental health issues common in teenagers and students?" Any feedback or suggestions is greatly appreciated, JulianaRead More...

Hey everyone, For my third cycle this year, I decided to stick with my topic of teen issues, and I realized there are a lot of stereotypes about us that aren't true. Some common stereotypes I can think of are teens are lazy, addicted to social media and selfish. Like all stereotypes, they may apply to some people but not everyone as a whole. I decided to choose a question a little bit less opinionated this cycle because I had troubles last time with biased research. I still would love to...Read More...

WILDLIFE CONSERVATION

HOW COULD BE THE WORLD WITHOUT WILDLIFE ? What would the world absent of wildlife look like? We might think of a morning without the chiming song of birds, an ocean without whales spouting blasts of sea water beside ships, or a forest without an elephant,a hare,a leopard,a rhino,a buffalo or the king of the jungle the Lion that we all know.

I'm looking at colours, patterns, and materials that make certain looks so popular. Here are my findings. Denim Instead of mentioning denim in every category, I made a category for denim itself. If you've been following my research in the past, you may notice that I bring up denim a lot. Denim is never going away! The reason it's...Read More...

Inquiry Question

Evan McFee (Alumni-LFAS)
Hi everybody! Sorry for the late start, as I had a few things to sort out first. My topic is on technology, specifically Ultraviolet-emitting diodes such as computers, Iphones, TV's, Walkman's, etc. (okay, maybe not Walkman's). I want to figure out their effects on the brain, and why they are so addicting to nearly everyone that uses them. Whether it's social media, or video games, or instant messaging, these technologies have transformed the way we interact with and view the world around...Read More...

Hello everybody! This round of research for me was all about fashion and the environment. The fashion industry has really had a harsh and harmful effect on nature, and I wanted to look into that a little. So, here we go. The fashion industry requires low costs to produce popular looks and trends with enough time that the looks will still be popular. But this means that mindfulness of the environment is a low priority, and the fashion industry has a very disturbing effect on the environment.Read More...

Hello lovely people! I've returned with more research, and in this round, I looked at marketing in the fashion industry. I don't know if I'll look deeper into this part of it, maybe I'll do another round with more specific examples. But it's kind of impossible to talk about fashion without talking about marketing. As well, a lot of this knowledge didn't come from the internet, but workshops and speakers and things like that from school, so credit goes to those people. Here we go. These are...Read More...

Déjà Vu Introduction

Hello Everyone :))! Just to get everyone updated I wanted to show what I've learned about D éjà Vu in general so far! D éjà Vu is french for already seen , which is where the word comes from. D éjà Vu is actually something that is very poorly understood even today, but is known to be most common to those between the ages 15-25!
