  2. 2. Mindmap
  3. 3. Topic 1: Are today’s teens going overboard? • Do all teens just smoke and drink & Are teenagers just drinking and smoking to act ‘cool’ for friends or is it a cry for help? • Are all teens the same or a? • What influences teenagers to behave the way they do? • I will discuss how the internet influences drinking by such challenges as the ‘Drinking Game’ for various TV shows. Debate: - Are todays teens getting out of hand? And is it the medias fault or is it their parents? - Why does the media and parents criticise teenagers for drink and smoking, when their main influence is TV’s such as skins and a The Inbetweeners. Example over here: Skins Drinking Game
  4. 4. Additional Information I will discuss: • If teenagers family status affects their behaviour. Such as single-parent families, nuclear families etc. • How parents smoking affects their children. • How your location in the world affects your behaviour. Effects of underage drinking include: - School problems, such as higher absence and poor or failing grades. - Social problems, such as fighting and lack of participation in youth activities. - Higher risk for suicide and homicide. - Memory problems. - Abuse of other drugs. - Death from alcohol poisoning.

  5. 5. Topic 2: Does good education guarantee a good job? • Todays society is in the middle of a recession, meaning many people are losing their jobs and having qualifications does not always mean a guaranteed job. • Also, many people are being replaced by machines that can do their jobs quicker and more efficiently for less of the cost. Debate: - Are good grades and a degree essential to having a ‘good job’? - What is the effect of having a degree vs not having one? - Does good grades always mean good university? - Does a degree always mean dream job? - Is further education essential for a ‘good’ job? Employment rate then and now
  6. 6. Topic 3: Does music change our perceptions of reality? • Music videos we see today • Lyrics in music today • etc Debate: - Does the music people listen to influence their life/everyday choices? I will discuss: - How lyrics can influence ones behaviour (rap music etc) - Does music of today change our perceptions of reality?
  7. 7. (audience interviews) Person Topic Why? Karina, 37 1 I would like to know what todays teenagers are up to. Adina, 12 3 I like music and I would like to learn more about it. Maria, 17 2 Its an interesting subject and many can relate to it. Tajah, 7 3 Because I really like music and listening to it. Rebecca, 17 1 I think it would be fun to watch this and compare teens to myself and friends. Amanda, 17 1 Teenagers are stereotyped a lot and it would be interesting to see things from their POV. Shenae, 11 2 I think school is important and going to university Chante, 17 3 I’m a fan of different types of music and this sounds interesting. Annette, 40 2 I think it’s a really important topic that lots of people need to learn about.
  8. 8. Favourite topic • “Do all teens just smoke and drink & engage in ‘destructive’ behaviour? • Are all teens the same? • What influences teenagers to behave the way they do? ” WHY? • As a teenager, I can see from their point of view • I can interview my peers for the documentary • I can find arguments for and against arguments raised • It is a practical topic • It is an everyday issue/question • Our environment allows us to meet and question several different types of people about this topic.
