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...

Hello again. It’s been a really long time since my last post, but here we are, getting back into the swing of things! A while ago I started thinking about rearranging my question to what influences people’s opinions instead of what effects Canadians’ view of America? I realized that both were practically the same line of thought in my head, and so I decided to go down that route. This round I looked at articles which suggested and showed social influence on the formation of opinions. In one...Read More...

Hey guys its been a while once again but we’re back with yet another round of research. This round I focused on social behaviours relating to plastic usage as well as some popular misconceptions.

Over 340 metric tons of plastics are produced in the world annually and about 50% of this volume is for disposable applications(2). A leading cause for littering could be greenwashing...Read More...

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

How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated? Discussion of how your inquiry now impacts your thinking. I have always been interested in my topic because of my hope to pursue a career in law and the criminal justice system. This topic also resonated a lot with me because I have a absent parent.

Hello everyone and happy holidays! I'm finally posting a bit of the work I've been working on over the past while to show I'm actually slightly productive.

I'm also going to be putting all of my gathered information into categories to make it easier to compare and contrast; although at the moment I've chosen to focus on strictly gathering info. I started my research by looking at cigarette...Read More...

Hi everyone, It’s been a while since I posted, but for this post I will be focusing on what is happening in your brain when you are being creative. There is no part of the brain related specifically to creativity. In the past many people thought that logical thinking uses the left side of your brain and creative and innovative thinking uses the right, but recently scientists have realized that might not always be true. New research has revealed that creative thinking can be determined by how...Read More...

This round I will be looking at: What are the benefits of self driving cars, how do they impact the world in a good way and when can we expect them to be implemented? My last research round was: what are the ethical problem associated with self driving cars?

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

How does the criminal justice system affect children with parents who are incarcerated? Throughout my research it became more difficult than I believed it would be and it was not easy to find information that would be pertinent to my research. I found many impacts on the child that ranged from physical and emotional depending on the type of absence from the parental figure. There were many cases where either the parent was completely absent or more complex cases where the parent was...Read More...

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...

Hi everyone! This is my first metamorphosis for my cycle concerning the inquiry question: “what does it mean to be conscious?”. A reason why I choose to do this question was because people experience perceptions, sensations, emotions and thoughts. Consciousness is a phenomenon we all experience independently of each other. Just thinking about this is fascinating. During these past four research rounds, I had hoped to being into the light the importance of our awareness and that we can be...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...
