Piel’s Spring Break Book Responses

1. Watch or read something that’s related to your project idea. That might involve Netflix or a magazine or asking Google or something more creative.







2. Click on a category on the right that’s related to your own interests (like “film’) and comment on at least three other project ideas.




3. Find someone to call/interview/email about your project/research idea. Document this conversation.

I sent questions out to child psychologists across the globe but their reponses may take a while to get back to me. I’ll be updating this as soon as I get them.

4. Post the link to your post to Facebook or somewhere else where you can get feedback from your friends on your ideas.

5. Find an example of what you want to do. If you want to create a website, find a website that’s similar to what you’re interested in making.

  1. I really like it. Maybe at one point you could find children who are not as or not (at all) exposed to the media and experiment on them, comparing their reactions to those of the children who have been exposed to the media. Just a random idea.

  2. I really like your project because you’re all set with your general idea about what you want to do. A small light bulb just turned on in my head and I was wondering how you could use celebrity children as an example on how media influences them vs. normal everyday children and media influence.

  3. P – it’s exciting to see what you were thinking about over the break. Can you explain, here, what your problem/question is and what you’re thinking about regarding medium/form?

  4. Media is the means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, and magazines that reach or influence people widely. How has media influenced gender identity amongst adolescents?
    It’ll be a project where adolescents, parents, and professionals share their stories, facts, and opinions on how media has influenced gender identity; through a short stories book and video. Something similar to Anna Camilleri and Chloë T. Brushwood Rose’s book, Brazen Femme: Queering Femininity and Dr. Phil’s show on gender identity disorder.

  5. I love your idea and the question you’re perusing – mine is somewhat similar to yours in the field of analyzing media and its influences on humans in general. Good luck with everything!
