Student Opinon Papers re: Media Influence on Teenagers [2010 - 2011]

Seventh grade students were tasked to research "media influence on teenagers" on the Internet, produce brochures in Publisher about their findings, and then write their own opinions. This web page links to their opinions.

Mr. Chambers is currently working with various colleagues and politicians to begin to look at the possibility of placing statements on media advertising and products to encourage students to stay in school, study harder, graduate from high school, and go to college. He is of the opinion that the establishment needs to get the attention of today's youth before it can seriously consider education reform. He feels that media is responsible for the lethargy that is seen in classrooms across America, and he feels that it should be held accountable.

The students' opinions tend to reflect Mr. Chambers' concerns. Click on names below to open their papers in PDF format. Click on brochures to view/read their research.
