Metamorphosis - "Why Do Some Teens Feel The Need To Put Great Effort Into Their Appearances While Others Don't?

Lauren Jang (Charles Best) ·
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...

Hi Lauren! This was a great way to tie up your research! I like how you addressed the fact that many people buy clothes whether they genuinely like them or not. As well, I was interested to know how this affected you on a personal level. It's very interesting how conscious you are of how what you've researched plays out into real life. And it's also cool to know that you're choosing items that reflect YOUR personality! I'm very impressed by your research and am interested to know what your...

Hey Lauren! Great end to the cycle! I like how you added your own opinions on the topic, as well as doing a survey to see how other people think. You made me realize how much others actually impact how we dress. In my case, I feel like I have to wear clothes that aren't the exact same as everyone else because I don't want others to think I'm copying everyone else, but I don't want to wear anything that stands out either. That's why it's so hard for me to find clothes I like - because I'm...

Awesome job Lauren! I could definitely tell you were very passionate about this topic and really cared about what you were looking in to. You brought up some great points about picking clothes YOU like, not because they are trendy, and that having your own style is a good thing and more people should do it. I can totally relate to how you mentioned people will buy things just because they are in trend, but do they really like it on themselves? Your post has sparked many questions to my mind!

Hey Lauren! I like how simple your research is! It makes it much easier to understand! It is so interesting as well! A teen would be changed after a concussion. Mentally, if the teen was hurt by soccer for an example the teen may be afraid to play soccer again. Physically, once you get a concussion or even break a bone for an example. Your more prone to injuring your self in that spot again because it was damaged there so it wouldn't be as strong. Hope this helps

Hey Lauren! I'm so happy that you decided to continue with your research! Concussions are some of the most mundane injuries that we come across; they're common, but they can have serious consequences. I think that looking into the long-term effects of concussions could be a really interesting way to go; maybe discuss how people who got concussions as teens might grow up to have certain mental, physical, or psychological problems as adults. Just a suggestion, but I think that it would be an...

Hey Charlotte, Nice topic choice. I'm sure you'll be covering both the negative and positive influences. So some questions you could possibly consider is how can is effect their future? How does it effect decisions? Why is their an obssesion/addction to social media?

Hi Charlotte, I think with this topic, there will be many subtopics to look into. social media how affected how we use our cell phones before it was used to text and call. Now, social media is able to replace texting and most people use social media more on their phones than to call and text. You could do a research round on how it has benefited and negatively impacted youth. Here are some topics that may help: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/p...tes-society-opinion/...

Re: Research #2 (Cycle 2) - How Might Concussions Affect Teen's Brain Development?

Hi Lauren, This is a very interesting topic because many of us have had,or possibly will have, a concussion in our lifetimes. One thing that you can perhaps look into is how multiple concussions affect people vs just one concussion. Are people that undergo multiple concussions affected differently than people that undergo just one concussion? Here are some resources that you could perhaps compare to determine this. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK185336/...

Hi, Claire! I really like your topic. that is pretty close to our teenagers daily lives. i have seen so many friend around me start to drink alcohol. This may due to the pressure and stress they have on their study. i also notice that there are many new about the death caused by alcohol. i think your next post can find some examples about those news so that it can make our teenager aware the serious problem caused by alcohol.

hello nice topic there,i also think the kind of lifestyle we get from our parents can affect us.this is because,if your parent can't take time to talk to you,you will have so many bad impressions about her.for example,"my mum/dad don't love me,i think my friends are a better option reason being they give me their time."So at the end of the day you become an addict.

Hey Claire,Wow! What a nice you are researching about drugs.These are some of the reasons as to why teens abuse drugs. Depression Some teens turn to drugs and alcohol as a form of escapism. When we are sad or depressed we see these substances as a way to forget and feel happier. It’s our attempt to self-medicate.

This is very interesting! One of my friends had a concussion a few years ago and I think her personality changed a little too. She became more shy than she was, and rarely talked to people she didn't know. She also seemed a little depressed right after she got the concussion, I think it was because she frustrated because of what happened. I'm looking forward to what you find next, good luck!

Hi everyone today i will be looking at reasons why teens abuse alcohol or drugs. One of the most challenging decisions, for an age group that is unready to make difficult choices, whether to start using alcohol or drugs. One is that, adolescence is a time of self-exploration.

However, others would argue so wisely that adolescents, by virtue of their young age...

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.

Interesting topic, Social media is defiantly a canvass for a lot of negative influences and presents an increased risk of experiencing cyberbullying but it also can be a platform for societal betterment and community engagement. It really is a similar situation to schools or social gatherings but ion a much larger and more permanent scale. However it does have a sense of disconnect and can have negative effects on people if they don't engage in person too.

Hi Charlotte! This is a really heated topic today, and a cool research idea. Going off of what you said about the changes in teens when they choose to use social media, you could look at stats for how open teens are online versus real life, or how their involvement with social media disconnects them from the real world. Actually, it would be really cool to find something about extensive social media use affecting reaction times and alertness. Have fun!

Re: Round Research#1

Hey Charlotte, Great topic; one that is becoming more and more relevant today. Social media definitely goes both ways and has positive effects because of factors like increasing our awareness about global issues, but is also negative because it opens us up to cyber bullying. I am hoping that you'll definitely focus on the third point you'l be elaborating on in your next round (on when teens are anonymous online) because it's something I haven't given much thought to. Good luck!
