Hey everyone, My inquiry question is How does the foster care system affect children placed within it? On my research round 3 post, I said this would be my metamorphosis, but it turns out I get one more research round which is great because previously I looked into physical and mental effects. Which means it's only fitting to research the emotional effect of the foster care system and what happens to children who age out of the system. Emotional Effects Before I can dive into the emotional...Read More...

Hey everyone, This is going to be my first research round of the year and it feels great to be back on the site.

Inquiry Question: How Does the Foster Care System Effect Children Placed In It? The foster care system is a controversial topic in my opinion because yes, it does help children who are in need of a home but on the other hand a lot of children suffer from physical, mental and emotional abuse. Have you ever heard the expression "the system is broken"? Well people refer it to the law but also foster care because the government implicated these programs for the safety and well being for...Read More...

Hey everyone, Here is my last research round for the cycle. In this post, I will be compiling opinions from each research round and summarizing them in a paragraph while adding my own opinion. I think adding different opinions will allow my research to see a different perspective that I didn't have when I first wrote my research rounds. For the past 3 posts I looked into: What is the difference between being over dress and underdressed? Is being overdressed better than under dressed? or are...Read More...

Hey everyone, For my new inquiry question, I decided to look into "How Does The General Traits Of Teenagers Affect Our Daily Lives?"

For this round of research, I plan to examine... What is a trait? What are common traits for all age groups? What is a trait? According to the dictionary a trait is: a...Read More...

Hey everyone, After reading @Erica Won (LFAS) very helpful comment on my Inquiry Question, I've decided to slightly change my question to "How Does The General Traits Of Teenagers Affect Our Daily Lives?" As she mentioned in her comment, finding research for stereotypes will be very biased since everyone has a different opinion on them. I will still create a survey because I like to hear everyone's opinions and include them in my posts. I hope by altering my question it will...Read More...

Hey everyone, On my last post, I uncovered how social media affects how teens dress, if it lowers or raises standards and if a certain platform of social media is more beneficial to business. I found out that social media has a great influence on how teens dress because companies promote their products on different platforms which results in teens purchasing them right away. After a certain amount of people buy a specific product, a trend has been created and shared through many other posts.Read More...

Hello everyone, For my first round of research, I will be looking into... What is the difference between being over dress and underdressed? Is being overdressed better than under dressed? or are both equally bad? How are trends different or similar in the 1990 compared to 2017/2018? What does it mean to be overdressed ? When someone says you're overdressed it could mean two things, either you are dressed to formal for the event or you are wearing too much clothing. For most people it's when...Read More...

Hey everybody, I kept the same inquiry question as last cycle which is "Why do some teens feel the need to put great effort into their appearances while others don't?" In this cycle, I plan to focus on the reasoning behind dressing well while also explaining first what it means to be under or over dressed. Last cycle, I first figured out how teens put effort into their appearances, explained what it meant to fit in and examined if peer pressure has an effect on how teens dress. Research...Read More...

Hello fellow students, For this week I will talking about bullying and how it can make teens feel like they need to fit in and dress a certain way. Personally, I think bullying can have a large affect on teens because subconsciously we all fear being bullied so we try to prevent it in any way that we can. Many of us already have been bullied and it's not easy to go through it. So I applaud the people in the world that don't care what other people think about them because you are being your...Read More...

Hopefully, I will be able to go into deep detail on what does it mean to fit in because I think that's an important question which may have different answers based on people's opinions. Also, I am going to create a survey to see what...Read More...

Hello everyone, For my first cycle of the year, I'm going to investigate "Why do some teens feel the need to put great effort into their appearances while others don't?". I noticed throughout the years that as I grew older, the more time people spent on appearances. When we were in elementary school, I felt like everyone just wore basic clothing and as we grew up, there are many more options to choose from in the stores. I believe this is important topic that I want to uncover from different...Read More...

For my first inquiry question for this year, I decided on doing something to do with teens appearances because as teenagers some of us like to spend a large amount money on clothing while others don't. The question I came up with is: Why do some teens feel the need to put great effort into their appearances while others don't? I would like to research and make surveys to find out the answer to this question since I think it could be really useful to some teens like myself. Maybe we don't...Read More...

Hey everyone, This week I plan to talk about the different medical issues that revolve around sleep. I plan to focus on three main conditions: Insomnia, Sleep Apnea and Narcolepsy. For each medical condition, I would like to uncover each issue, find symptoms and find a way to fix the condition or find a way for people to live with it.

Hello everyone, It feels like it's been a long time since I last posted, but I will be posting every 2 weeks now with posts that are a little bit longer.

Before I get right into my round of research I must do a myth. Myth #1 Your brain rests during sleep. False: The body rests during sleep, not the brain. The brain remains active, gets recharged,...Read More...

Hello, For my new cycle, I'm exploring into a new question which is Why do we have trouble sleeping? I don't know anything much about this topic yet, so I'm going to be starting from the beginning. An idea I came up with is I want to uncover some myths about sleeping, so in my opening paragraph for each research round I'm going to briefly touch on a different sleeping myth. Hopefully at the end of my research, I will have 5 myths to uncover in my sixth research round. Now without a father of...Read More...

Thank you everyone who took my survey and left awesome comments on my previous posts because it is very helpful for this post and at the end I hope to finally pick a side of the debate!Read More...
