Should Canada continue to support refugees coming from the U.s. border?- project plan

Inquiry question: Should Canada continue to support refugees coming from the U.s. border? Hello everyone! I just started on butterfly effect and this is my first project. I chose to look into something big that is happening in Canada. When Donald Trump was elected the new president of the United States it didn't only effect them. The new laws in the U.S. make it very difficult for refugees, resulting in many deciding to "move" to Canada. I was interested in this topic because it will have a...

Re: Should Canada continue to support refugees coming from the U.s. border?- project plan

Hello Catherine Great question indeed.I suggest that you just accept the refugees in your border reason being that its not their willing for them to be so.Not knowing well about Canada but i cant give you an example from our country Kenya,Many refugees are an outcome of political war.Many very rich but many of their properties are burnt down.With no other choice they end up staying in camps.The government help them but they never expected this. maybe this may help;...

It depends on why that person has trouble making friends; are they shy or bossy or aggressive or do they just have bad luck in keeping relationships?

Re: Inquiry question:social life

Its not hard just introduce him to some of your friendly friends he will finaly get absorped to it and who knows he /she might start liking the whole idea and start making new friends too

I would say to take it easy and make sure not to rush the person. Nobody likes being forced to do something, and trying to force them to make friends would probably be quite aggravating for them, which could ruin the experience. Patience is key.

Attending social activities, joining a club or group; show casing students getting along, working together and building relationships is a way to slowly break someone out of their shell.

well,i think there is a main cause to that problem,you should try to find out why he or she can not make friendship with others and with that you'l understand him and find the best way possible to make friendship with such a person.l

Interesting. I know first hand that the cause of that can be due to social anxiety, getting panic attacks around big groups, so you may want to look into that aspect!

I think you may help him by involving him or her in certain beneficial groups or try and introduce him to some of your friends whereby he will be more open to people.

May be it determines with what type of friends he is not able to make example;females or males?But he or she can try to chat with them and i think he/she can make some.

Hi Catherine, What a great topic idea, you will definitely have a lot to discuss in your future rounds of research because of the depth of this inquiry. I can see that you will be focusing on the relation with the US, and there is much controversy from Donald Trump. Yes, he has an immigrant ban, but is this beneficial in some aspects? For example, an economic aspect? By not allowing immigrants to enter the US, I have read some articles about how this has helped their economy. So, if we...

Hey Catherine, Interesting topic! Though this is highly controversial it is a very relevant topic that you will be able to find lots of information on. There are, of course, some economic downfalls to this but there are also humanitarian reasons to consider as well. Either way, it will be tough to come up with a concrete position on this topic without offending someone... Best of luck, Ben Laird

Re: Should Canada continue to support refugees coming from the U.s. border?- project plan

Hi Catherine! Wow this is a topic is receiving a lot of attention right now especially since Donald Trump came up with the ban. Like Ben said it will be really difficult to come up with a one-sided position on this without possibly offending someone. In my opinion, these people are likely fleeing their countries due to safety concerns whether that be over religion, race, sexuality, gender, social class, social norms or war/civil wars within their countries. If the fear is so strong to make...

Hi Catherine, This is a current topic that everyone has different viewpoints. Like Rachel said, this is a highly controversial topic, especially with Trump's new bans. In my opinion, I think we should allow refugees to be able to live somewhere they feel safe. There was a news article where a man walked across the border through a forest and almost froze to death just to get to Canada. Heres a similar article: https://www.theguardian.com/wo...der-trump-travel-ban I'm looking forward to so...

Re: Inquiry Question

This is a fantastic question. I never realized I was interested in this idea until reading your post, but I'm seriously now so excited to see what you do with this project. I think this question deals with an important distinction between mindset and actions. People often assume that portrayed attitudes are synonymous to the feelings a person may have, but of course that is not necessarily true. I wonder if you could extend this idea beyond just optimism and pessimism. It would be...

Re: Inquiry Question

Thank you! You raise some really good points that I hadn't thought about. I was planning on going out of the main question as I try to figure out what exactly pessimism and optimism are defined as.
Comment

Re: Inquiry Question

I don`t really know what I am talking about, but I believe optimists are believing in something bigger than themselves. Having hope and faith that whatever happens, happens in their favour. I really like this question, and you just need to come up with a more solid definition of what optimists and pessimists are.

Hey Emily! I really like how you want to look into the positive side of technologies impact on the lives of children. We often forget how helpful technology has been in the lives of many, so its nice to see its positive effects! It’s a great idea to work hands on for this question! I really look forward to your next post! Good luck!

Re: Inquiry Question- How are sports different in different parts of the world?

As you know I love playing sports too, and my first project was "Why do people play sports so much even though it is a lot of work?" You can look back at my past project posts if you think it will help. What I was wondering about your topic what is the difference in what sports women play and what sports men play in different countries. There are a lot of different sports and a lot of different countries so you might need to narrow down your question a little bit. Maybe compare Canadian and...

Hey Alanna, I'm very interested in your topic idea! The comparison of mental health from developed to undeveloped countries is rarely talked about. I was wondering how you would be defining which countries fit into which category? Will you be comparing one country vs another or averaging out the developed and undeveloped countries. Will you be looking more into the citizens and what illnesses they have? The treatment? There's also a question with diagnosis: can richer countries afford to...

Re: Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society?

This is a really interesting question. There are a lot of different variations of art. I believe if you look at music compared to drawing and painting there are different views. Both men and women are quite accepted into music. One thing I look at would be school electives. The art classes that I took, ceramics and photography are mainly girls. In my ceramics class the only guys in there didn't have a choice. Except the fact that our teacher was a man. Does it have something to do with age?

Re: Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society?

That's actually a really good question. I have visual arts right now, and our class is made up of only girls, except for our male teacher. Based on that, and the fact that there are more famous male artists, it is my belief that a lot of girls enjoy doing art, whether or not they're passionate about it, but because today's society seems to push boys away from art, only boys who are extremely passionate about it would persevere, therefore becoming extremely good artists. Those are just my...

Re: Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society?

Hey this is a great Question! I know that within the creative arts classes within my school many of the students are indeed often women. I know that within society often it is shown that women seem ‘more artistic’ however its strange that over the year’s societies has changed! Maybe its because as time passed many more women who are into the visual arts have become more well known? Though I don’t know much myself, I really look forward to your findings! Good Luck!

Re: Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society?

Wow I really like this question!! I honestly agree that society and pop culture has a HUGE impact on these topics involving gender roles etc. I think you guys should look at the influences of well known people like modern day artists and compare how many of them are women and how many are men, and then see the how the number has changed from the past. Maybe also look at if nationality and culture plays a role in this as well? Good luck!

Re: Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society?

This is a great question! I personally believe that society is largely the reason why we see so many female artists today, for multiple reasons. One is that, as you've said, most amazing artists from our world's history have been men, so I doubt that women are necessarily "more creative". Another reason is that, today, feminism has never been so prominent; the gender roles in many practices, such as art, have been completely flipped. Women were seldom encouraged to pursue art back in the...

Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society?

Hi everyone! For our first inquiry question this year, we have decided to do our project on gender roles in art. Our question is : Are women actually more creative/artistic than men, or is it a thought that has been influenced by society? Has society/family/media taught men that being artistic/creative is not good? Are there simply different standards for women in art? If it is true that women are more creative than men, why? Is it something in a woman's brain? However, many years ago, men...

Inquiry Question 1: Comparisons between mental health in first vs. third world countries.

Hi everyone! I've decided that for my first topic I would research something that has been a big subject in my life. Mental health. This topic has always interested me and it's not something people generally talk about or express. Mental health is a big issue and I feel that more people should confront these emotions that can overtake us. I look forward to hearing all of your feedback, critiques, and insight on this topic.

Question: “How does the use of technology affect a child's development?” I have always been interested in the way children develop and see the world. Since technology has become such a huge part of our everyday lives, its no wonder some children have become so attached to it. Through my research I hope to get the chance to work with kids as well as gain a deeper understanding about the ways technology affects us.

Inquiry Question- How are sports different in different parts of the world?

Hi guys! I've been thinking all week for an inquiry question, and I finally came up with one. My question is: How are sports different in different parts of the world? I've played sports for basically all my life, so its something I'm really interested in! I want to find out what sports people play in different countries, how they are played, and why they are different than what we play in Canada. If anyone has any suggestions on how I could make my project better I'd love to hear them:) Thanks!

Inquiry question C6

Hi everyone, I am just going to be posting my inquiry question for the upcoming cycle. My topic is related to our local marine conservation and I will be focusing on a specific species; salmon, which has been a staple resource in B.C for centuries and one that is slowly in decline. How is urban development impeding riparian zones and streamkeeping? I will be posting an update with my project plan soon!

Hi Maiya, This is a great topic that has much potential for successful future research. I like how you will be focusing on BC, to give those of us who live here a question to reflect on. Although we do not have such a terrible impact on our ecosystem as other provinces that are more advanced, I agree that the urban development has an enormous impact on species like the salmons. I think that something worth looking into would be comparing BC to other Canadian provinces. If we potentially...

How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated?

Inquiry Question: How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated? Glass windows and metal bars holding a human soul in captivity. As the years go by the number of divorces has gone up to over 70 000 per year in Canada, showing us that separate parents and absent parents are not uncommon in our society. But switching between your mother and fathers houses per weekend is completely and utterly different than watching your own blood locked behind bars.

Re: How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated?

Hey Sienna! I'm truly intrigued by your question as it is something I've never thought about before. Perhaps it would be interesting to look into different situations and how the justice system deals with each case. As an example, what happens if only one parent is incarcerated? Both? What happens to the custody of the child? Hopefully, these questions will help you with your research. Here are some potential sources for you: https://youth.gov/youth-topics...incarcerated-parents...

Hey @Sienna Saunders (Charles Best) ! You have me at your question. Quite the topic! There are multiple areas in the world, society and global community that affects the growth of children. This is one of them sadly We often hear about the common things such as those in media. I have also taken a look at your project plan . Looks pretty nice! I like the research you will look at and can't wait to see them. Mostly the perspective is the effects of children from the parent's jail time.
