Metamorphosis

Hi and welcome to my Metamorphosis!! This past cycle of research rounds, my topic has been: should Euthanasia be legalized. Quick recap on what euthanasia is: “Euthanasia is a deliberate act undertaken by one person with the intention of ending the life of another person to relieve that person’s suffering where that act is the cause of death.” These are my different rounds: Round 1: I looked into the different places euthanasia is Legal, their reasons for it and the different laws and rules...Read More...

Hi everyone! The cycle has come to an end, so now it’s time for me to post my metamorphosis! My question is: “ How should government funding be used for the prevention of wildfires? ” So far, I’ve done four rounds of research. In my first round, I did some research on important background information I might need to know later on in my research such as how wildfires burn, causes and factors and types of wildfires. In my second round of research, I researched both the negative and positive...Read More...

Hey everyone, Since the beginning of the year, I have been researching the foster care system and the effects it has on children and my findings have been eye opening for myself. This question had some meaning behind it for myself because over the summer, I became acquaintances with someone who was in the foster system and I wanted to figure out what experiences he went through during his time. There has been some controversial topics within the system, especially abuse of the children, but...Read More...

CYCLE 5 - METAMORPHOSIS

Heeva Chavoshi (Charles Best)
Hey everyone! This is, unfortunately, my last post for this cycle which makes this post my metamorphosis on my inquiry question... Does socially accepting drug addiction affect its usage among consumers positively or negatively? So, let's get started! With my previous inquiries, I always had an end answer in mind - even before I started my research. With the evolution of feminism, for example, I already knew the overall view of society on feminism when it first started compared to where it...Read More...

Hello everyone! Over the past few months, I have been researching cultural appropriation. I had an idea of what it was before, since we talked a bit about it in my writing class, but I never really had a deep enough understanding of it. I looked at how cultural appropriation affects the arts, since I believe it is important for everybody to see themselves represented in art in a meaningful way. I also looked at difference between appropriation and appreciation, to understand how to apply...Read More...

Inquiry Question: What does ‘understanding’ mean? The project brings me many new ideas and at the same time, it changes my point of views and gives me more angles to look at the essence while doing researches. First, when I’m looking at the word ‘understanding’, I feel it is something which cannot be discussed in sections because the topic itself is so subjective. However, after reading some psychological analysis online, I changed my mind. Understanding can be explained by reason, result,...Read More...

Hey everyone, I'm sad to say this will be my last post for the year.

Hey everyone! Sorry I'm a bit late with my metamorphosis; I had a lot to study for during finals week, but I'm back with my last post for the school year! For those who are just joining us, my inquiry question is... How does consumerism in the beauty/fashion industry affect our society today? Let's get started with the metamorphosis! Out of all the cycles I've done this year, I believe this inquiry has impacted my thinking the most for three reasons. First, I was aware that consumerism was a...Read More...

Hello everyone! I'm here for the last time this school year, and I'm going to be ending this research round with my metamorphosis! This research round I looked into humans, value, how we assign value to things, and what makes something valuable. Lastly, I looked at if anything is "invaluable". First, I think my research really impacted my state of mind and my thinking. Before performing this research, I had a general idea of what made something valuable, but I didn't really understand the...Read More...

Hi everyone! This year flew by so fast, it still amazes me that I completed 3 full cycles throughout the whole school year. Through these cycles, I have deepened my understanding and knowledge on topics that I am personally passionate about, and I feel this has allowed me to grow and connect this learning to other things in my life and school work. This is my rap up for my third and final cycle of the year! Inquiry question: “What does a healthy lifestyle consist of, and how do we maintain...Read More...

This is Mundia last post as a student, I hope to come back next year as a mentor. I learned so much this year from teaching at Hillcrest Middle. Just a recap of what happened. We started in September teaching the kids the basics of what Butterfly Effect is and getting to know each other. It seems like such a long time ago now that I can barely remember the details. We started with questioning and teaching them what a good question is… not just a googlable one is, as we like to call it. Then...Read More...

How does recreational crabbing effect crab populations in British Columbia? This is the question I have been trying to figure out for a whole semester, and finally can say I have finished my research and have come somewhat to a conclusion. Now technically my 2nd cycle is the same question as my cycle 1, but that's because this was quite a big project, and it took me lots of time to get out and do the research. So... this metamorphosis is on the same question, but since the last one some of...Read More...

Metamorphosis Cycle 7

Throughout the course of this cycle, I researched "Why are mental health issues common in teenagers and students?". I looked into many different mental health issues and analyzed their effects on teenagers and student performance at school. I learned an incredible amount of new, interesting information, so I would like to share my wrap-up with you all. The new knowledge I acquired while researching my inquiry has a tremendous impact on my thinking now. Firstly, I am much more aware of mental...Read More...

Hey folks! Hard to believe I've been researching the same question for so long. It's been fun and informative, but I feel it's time to wrap it up now. Here's what I have to say for my reflection; How has this inquiry impacted your thinking? I think I'm more conscious of what is going on in the fashion industry because of this project. I am also glad I looked at current fashion in different cultures and places around the world- this has helped me to have a more accurate perception of these...Read More...

Howdy everyone, I am back from a long delay (sorry!) and I am here to post my metamorphosis. For those of you who have never seen my work, I spent the past research round studying the different impacts of the textile/fashion/clothing industry. I looked into how it impacts us on an economic, environmental, social, and media level. If you would like to read my research, you can find my first round here:...Read More...

Hi everyone! My cycle for my second inquiry question this year has come to an end. My question was "Why is Vancouver one of the most expensive places to live?" What I discovered through researching this topic has opened my eyes and made me very aware of all the prices my parents have to pay for gas, food, houses etc. It also gave me insight to how our government is dealing with these problems of high expenses in the city. In the end, I feel I have finished looking into this question, and I...Read More...

Inquiry Question: Are competitive eaters inherent or acquired? This topic can be discussed and conducted in two ways, one is if the eater is inherent, and the other is if the eater is acquired. If the eater is inherent, I can investigate its backgrounds and physical structures. If the eater is acquired, I can investigate its living habits and eating habits. In both ways, I can get a correlation on why someone can eat this much food and what in the original causes this to happen. Also, I will...Read More...

Hey everyone! This is my metamorphosis on my inquiry question... " How has society's perspective on feminism changed over the past 50 years?" I really enjoyed learning about the evolution of feminism over the past few weeks. I had always been interested in the topic of feminism, but I had never really taken the time to do some insightful research on it. While working on this inquiry, I not only learned about how feminism has evolved, but I also learned about how hard the women before me...Read More...

Metamorphosis-Crabbing

Kian Abdollahi (Charles Best)
Hello everyone. When I started my project the question that I went in with was: How does recreational and industrial crabbing effect crab populations in British Columbia? The reason that I chose this topic was because when I first moved here I noticed all these people throwing these odd shaped nets into the water. Dozens and dozens of people in specific locations, throwing nets and catching crabs. Made me think...what's the effect? So that's why I chose it. I wanted to know more, so I got...Read More...
Hello everyone, I am now done the topic of "Why do some teens feel the need to put great effort into their appearances while others don't?" Throughout the cycle, I've come to realise many new things about teens clothing that I haven't noticed until I did my research. Sadly, I feel I have completed my research to the best of my abilities so my cycle has to come to an end. How has your inquiry question impact your thinking? My inquiry question has greatly impacted my thinking in a positive way...Read More...

Hi everyone! My inquiry question for these past two cycles was: Why do cats behave the way they do? Learning about cat behaviour has been very enjoyable and useful to me as I have a cat of my own. I’ve looked into their anatomy, predatory behaviour, communication, personalities, stress and illnesses, evolution/domestication, and environmental factors that shape a cat’s behaviour. How my inquiry now impacts my thinking After doing this research, I’ve learned that cats are actually less...Read More...

Metamorphosis Cycle 6

Hi Butterfly Effect, For my metamorphosis on "What are the controversial aspects of animal testing?" I will discuss what I have learned this cycle. First of all, how this topic now impacts my thinking. Before, I didn't realize how many companies and brands actually use animals to test their products. In reality, the majority of industries do so. I obtained this knowledge through light research, and the information was so easy to find that I was surprised how uninformed our society is by the...Read More...
