Get Custom Essay on Assignment: linking trends and issues through research, part 3 educ

Let Our Team of Pofessional Writers Take Care of Your Paper.

This week, you will begin a research assignment that you will complete and submit in Week 6. Like the assignment you completed in Week 4, this Application will give you the opportunity to explore the connections that exist between trends and issues that affect adolescents.

To begin this assignment, choose one specific trend or issue relating to adolescent health OR adolescent family/peer relationships. It can be one that you studied in this course or it can be another issue or trend of interest to you. Using the Walden Library and/or Internet/print resources, locate a recent article or research study that draws a connection between your chosen trend/issue and the larger world as it affects adolescents, specifically technology/media influences (e.g. media use, cyberbullying, etc.) or issues related to the transition to adulthood. (Note: You may want to look ahead to next week’s Learning Resources for ideas regarding the transition to adulthood.)

After you have chosen the article, write a 3- to 4-page summary and analysis of the article that includes responses to the following questions:

  • What specific connection(s) does the article draw between your chosen health or relationship trend/issue and a trend/issue related to the larger world? Provide a brief summary.
  • Do these findings surprise you or confirm what you already suspected? Explain.
  • What are the implications of these findings for practice in schools, homes, youth programs, etc.? Identify and describe at least two specific implications, including at least one for professionals who work with adolescents in a setting of your choice.
  • Do you think further research is needed? If so, why, and what kind? If not, why not?
