My research on EBSCO resulted in both a surplus of information as well as a surplus of confusion. Interestingly, most of the sources provided on my topic, whether or not being abused as a child makes it more likely to be an abuser as a parent, were scientific reports on studies. As such, the more I researched, the more I realized how open ended my topic can be. The issue with psychological research such as this is that human beings do not act uniformly. Results can change depending on the person, and the best you can do is look for trends.
I managed to make a breakthrough this week with an article by racebending.com. In the article (Rebecca Bigler, Developmental Psychologist), the reporter for racebending.com talked to a phycologist named Rebecca Bigler about her most recent study. Dr. Bigler and her team read stories to African American children and tested them ten minutes later about what they remembered about the book. The study showed that children form stereotypes and distort stories to fit their view of the world.
I enjoyed reading about this article because it taught me a lot about why do women have abortions.One thing it told was that some women dont have abortions just because they want to live there life without a baby its because the baby would have a problem and that can affect both of them the mom and the child so they just end up having an abortion.
In modern day society, there are poverty stricken countries, cities, and neighborhoods everywhere we look. It is not only a prevalent problem in the world, but it’s also a big problem here, in America. Reading these articles have enlightened me to see just how serious the problem of poverty is today. This does not necessarily even have to do with simply money, but it also has to do with our basic needs.
Hello, I am a senior at Fremont High School, I was born in Mexico City and something that inspires me to continue studies is that is that I want to become a psychologist. I love music, and I am a person that never gives up.
The “Doll Test” is an experiment in which young African American children are chosen to perform simple tasks that includes two dolls. One doll has a skin color of those that are caucasian, and the other doll has a skin color that matches those who are black. The task is, to ask the children questions that can test their racial perceptions. The children, who were between the ages of three to seven, answered questions that asked them to identify the race of the dolls, and also, which color doll they prefer.
You know society has failed when you have a neutral reaction towards children feeling humiliated by expressing their own race. Today I watched a video considered by my English teacher, Ms.Forbes. Throughout this video, it was disappointing knowing that what I watched didn't have a strong effect because it's a part of my daily life.
My whole life, I have never heard of the doll test until today. I can't imagine seeing myself or my younger brother to accept the stereotypes that are being held against us. My first reaction watching the doll test video, I was in shock and I could not believe how the black children are oppressing their own race. Their was only one black girl who said that people with a lighter skin color are mean because they are racist to black people. But most of the children in the video agreed that people with the dark skin are ugly, dumb, and mean.
While watching "The Doll Test," I was thinking about the children's parents because when a child acts or do something its a reflection of how the parents are teaching and raising them.
What I realized is, that we live in a world where technology has a far more effective way of influencing people and more precisely children than most parents are. I think that shows are what kids get the ideas of good/bad and ugly/beautiful. In most shows there is a good guy and a bad guy, most show cast the bad guy as people of darker skin so that might have a say in it.
In the Doll Test video, the researcher shows severals children from several races and ethnicity with the dolls of different colors. Then they ask some question about how each of the children view themselves and the dolls. Most of the children, which includes African American children, responds that the white doll or the doll with almost white skin color is the good, better, and smarter doll. In the article, “Doctors Kenneth and Mamie Clark and "The Doll Test",” The author describes how the researchers came up with the research and how did they explain the reason for the answers.
My research focuses around child abuse. My first field research was an interview. I interviewed Ana Erami, a behavioral health clinician who works in the main office of Fremont High School. The interview was a success because I got answers as to how she would deal with a child who has been abused. Apart from that, I got answers on what her job is here at Fremont and how she feels about it.
Houston, known for the sweltering summers and good ol' fashion barbecue has been plagued with three child shootings in the past four days. As most are aware, gun control is one of the most controversial issues that is being discussed over the U.S. Some believe it should be not only harder to obtain a lethal weapon but people who are buying such weapons undergo background checks as well as many other precautionary steps to ensure lethal weapons aren't getting into the wrong hands for the wrong reasons.
Ender's Game is a science fiction story set in a futuristic time when an alien species, the buggers, are at war with the humans. A six-year-old mastermind named Ender Wiggins is believed to be the humans' only chance at survival. Ender goes off to battle school in space, which is centered around a strategy-driven game that is held between the school's different teams. Ender is bullied and isolated at first because adults praise and favor him so much, but he soon develops into the best army leader the school has ever seen.
Hello my name is Mayra Ortiz i am a student at Fremont High School. My senior project topic is on Child abuse which i chose due to my caring for children. I hate to hear kids are being hurt both emotionally and physically. It is what really gets to me because this youth is our future.
Hello I am Nohemi. I am working on my Senior Project and I need a good thesis statement for my research paper and this is stressing me a little because I have a lot of work to do and I have to get a really good thesis statement and this is what I’ve got so far:
Tens of thousands of children are fleeing the violence in their countries, coming to the U.S. without their parents and facing deportation. Therefore, the U.S. government should make a law that gives the children a right to stay in the US and protect them from the violence in their countries.
Walter Dean Myers, the protagonist in Bad Boy, has a few traits that influence his relationships with others.
One, he is immature. Two, he is energetic. Three, he is bad.
These traits influence his relationships with others. An example of when he is bad is where Walter has a fight and throws a book at a teacher. In the book it says: “I didn't put it down. I threw it. I meant to throw it into the corner to show how mad I was…. The book hit her on the shoulder, and she screamed” (p. 31). Being bad comes into play here when he can’t control his temper.
After reading a certain book last year (name I forget), I was made aware by our nation's low test scores by racial minorities. These test scores came in the form of elementary school standardized national tests. The lowest scorers were those of ethnic minorities. Why? It wasn't because they were incapable or because they were "stupid".
What had begun as an act of charity, soon turned bad earlier this month in northwestern Syria. In an effort to prevent the spread of measles, rubella, and polio, possibly 50 children died due to a bad vaccine. It has been debated over what the precise number of deaths was, as well as whether this is a result of a simple mistake or rather the much worse possibility of it being a criminal act. However, in the New York Times, Dr. Annie Sparrow “cautioned that it was premature to conclude that the cause was sabotage and might be an instance of negligence.”
Hi my name is Alma. Im a senior in Fremont High School. I would like to discuss about how deportation is a big issue in the U.S . One link that stood out to me was this news article( http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/26/us/immigration-parents-deported-children-l... ). I believe the people who suffer the most are the children . It's unjust to separate kids from their parents because they are placed in the foster care system. Some children are lucky to have family members that can take care of them.
My topic is on child abuse in California. I chose this topic because it’s something that really gets to me. I feel that’s a topic that nobody really pays attention to. People just walk around not worried about the next generation. This society only worries about themselves. Overall child abuse makes me angry because it’s our future and they are being shut down. I think that no child should have to go through the pain of being abused.
It's senior year, but I can't get too comfortable, there's still the final project or the "Senior Project" that's a must do to determine whether we're going to graduate or not. So my project, I've decided to go with topics that are very delicate and controversial. Child abuse, pedophilia, human trafficking, sex tourism. And for what, why these, no one wants to hear about that? The fact that we have to turn away from said subjects is the reason why we have to confront it, these issues are as common as common can be and the more shock value and realism it has, the more we can't ignore it.
Children's books often teach life lessons that can be applied to individuals across a wide age range. Children’s literature is not limited to one message or moral, but should be open to a variety of interpretations. The importance of this concept is emphasized when, according to the article titled “Wild Thing, you make the artists sing with the joys of childhood inspiration,” Linda Morris explains “Each of us connect with different parts of children’s books and we connect with their different aspects at different times of our lives. That’s the power of children’s literature” (Morris 2).
There is a saying that there are no good books that are only for children. The same concept simply cannot be applied to adult books. Good children’s books evoke an emotional response that can be the same for both children and adults. Children’s literature is essentially a simplified medium into which relatable themes are conveyed.
I am honestly going to say that my concept map made me so frustrated, that I wanted to pull my hair out. I never thought that getting organized was going to be so hard for me. I started off with a very broad topic, which was feminism.Once I did my first concept map, I wrote down everything that came to my mind about feminism. I later realized that the topic has so many other topics that can be their own.

Dreaming is thinking. When we go to sleep our body and our conscious mind falls asleep but our subconscious is still awake and active. It is a mode of contemplation that’s much more visual and intuitive and emotional, as opposed to the patterns of waking thought. It confronts problems we may be facing in everyday life. When we try to suppress these thoughts it can lead to an increased occurrence of these thoughts in our dreams.
In my opinion, literature in general is essential to the progression of the intellectual movement, and therefore, all of its forms hold equal signifIcance. Why might it be in question that children’s literature may not be as adequate as adult literature? Is it under the view that children’s literature is simply less “wordy” and complex as adult/adolescent literature is commonly found to be? Though such perspective does hold some validity, as children’s books are indeed meant to be more suitable for younger crowd, I believe that its quality overcomes its quantity.
