Hey everyone, here is my metamorphosis for the last cycle of this school year and my inquiry question is "what makes a good education?" How my inquiry now impacts my thinking Before I did this research, I never really saw outside my own "world". By that I mean, I never really realized how different schooling is around the world and how different types of schools have many differences. I think that it's because movies, tv shows, etc all make stereotypes as to what schools look like. For an...Read More...

Hey everyone, here is my first round of research with my question "What makes a good education?" How people learn? People influence their educations in many different ways. A person needs to want to learn, if they are going to learn. If someone were to take a class that they are barely interested in, it's likely that they won't succeed in that class as much .(1) The best way for a person to learn is to do. You can sit there and watch someone explain to you how algebra works and the steps of...Read More...

So today,I researched about how do dogs decide who is their master? Obviously most dogs love people but why do they listen, and show affection more to one person rather then everyone, so why? Their "master' is usually the person the dog is always happiest to see and listens to the most. Dogs see their master as the person who cares for them (Eg: Talking them for walks, feeding them, etc), plays with them, and spends a lot of time with them. It may be more difficult for the dog the choose a...Read More...

Hey everyone! My question is "Why are some people more resilient than others?" This round of research, I''ll look at why are some people just naturally more resilient. People who are more resilient are capable of adapting to misfortune.. Resilient people can manage the difficulty of going through trauma. Obviously no one is going to be okay if something traumatic happens but just being upset and not trying to help yourself isn't the solution.

Hi everyone! Last cycle my topic was resiliency and my question was "Why are some people more resilient than others?"

Last cycle, I looked at what resiliency is and how it is obtained , physical and emotional abuse, and a variety of phobias and panic disorders.

Last week I looked into physical abuse and a little sexual abuse. Although there is so much I could be researching about my question "Why are some people more resilient then others?", I couldn't really decide about what to look into. After some thinking, this week I'll be looking into phobias and mental disorders that people may receive after physical and emotional abuse.

So my topic is about resiliency. This week, I'll be looking into resiliency itself. Basically an introduction to resiliency. This is my first round of research for this cycle and a completely new topic, so I thought it would only be ideal to get to know about resiliency itself. Resiliency is the ability to bounce back after something traumatic happens in your life, for an example, the loss of someone important in your life or a break up. It's basically your ability to move on.(1,2) Here are...Read More...
