Reflections • Standard- Historical Research, Evidence, and Point of View # 5 Students construct and test hypotheses; collect, evaluate, and employ information from multiple primary and secondary sources; and apply it in oral and written presentations. (RESEARCH) • Assignment Name- Legal Eagle Research Project: Bullying • Objective- Research “bullying” and write an essay about the subject. Figure out the causes and effects bullying has on today’s society using real life examples/ situations. Come up with solutions to the problem. • Question Prompt- How could I improve this work? Connecticut • Maine • Massachusetts • New Hampshire • Vermont • Rhode Island
  12. 12. I could have improved my bullying essay. There have been many times in my life where I have been in “bullying” situations. I could have expanded the idea of bullying and also my essay more, by using my actual situations. Although I’ve overcome most of the hard times I’ve been through, I still think about the damage that’s been done to me. There could have been many more concrete details and commentary added in my essay. A couple paragraphs would have been included to show how serious bullying is to me and also teenagers all around the world. There were quite a few examples I used but mine would have displayed a better understanding to it because it would be my problems and feedback. I could have made some of my questions that I used for my essay more interesting and it would have led me to writing a better essay. I should have found a few more websites that had actual examples of bullying, therefore I could have shown how bullying happens all around the world. Finding more websites would have improved my essay because I could have added additional information on bullying. Those were all ways I could have improved my work.
