In our articles most of overall idea was how the rules and systems of public schools infringe a students right stated in the Bill of Rights. This connects to the theme conflict because of the infringement the public school cause and the generalization that is composed of opposing forces, can be natural or man-made (in this case man-made), may be intentional or unintentional (intentional), may allow for synthesis and change, and is progressive. Researching this topic and idea of how public schools rules and systems do limit a students rights in the Bill of Rights it opened my eyes up to more of how students are impacted with these systems and rules public schools uphold. I never knew that students have the same rights as an adult would have. In these cases the public schools rules/ systems are the ones that are infringing a students rights. Yes, we did slightly widen our topic from bathroom rights students have and how they are being violated to now how public schools’ rules/ systems infringe the students rights, that are stated in the Bill of Rights. We changed it because our topic was getting to specific and we weren't getting enough research on that idea. In our next steps I looking forward to finding out more of the different experiences students have in a public school environment infringing their rights. Our collaboration is working moderately well, there's times when we don't agree but I believe that those little arguments it’s what make us grow more and experience more.
Something I learned from doing my research is how much students have truly experienced violation in their rights upon a public school environment.Our group is doing a survey because from a survey we can see the experiences a student had that is about their rights being violated in a school environment through the rules and systems. Something difficult has been creating questions that fit into out driving question but can also be based on a students experiences. Somethings we need to do to successfully complete this section of symposium is to have a full view of what we are missing to get the most of our research/ data. Our collaboration so far is doing well. My teammates and I have little arguments here and there, but we do get through those to make our project even better.
From the last time I wrote about our project I been learning more and more examples of what students take to opinion as their rights being taken away. Something I have learned about myself and my ability to work was learning how to accepts others opinions rather than taking them in the wrong way. I also from this collaborating communication is a big key to being successful. Even from my mistakes I have learned from them to try harder and better. To show the conflict between the school and students on our trifold boards we are going to incorporate classroom features the give a school feeling with the tension of students. For our supplemental pieces we were slightly brainstorming some ideas on what to create, but we believe at least one of the ideas will triumph. Doing the next steps of the project we will need lots of patience to work together on creating something noticeable in a gym of over four hundred students. Our collaboration so far is satisfactory because we do run into problems that take time to fix.
Our driving question is, “To what degree do the rules and systems of public school environments infringe upon the rights of students as stated in the “Bill of Rights”. Some of the revisions we had to make is to our generalizations part where we needed to explain and be more descriptive of our explanation to why we chose what we chose. Yes I did learn the importance of revisions because doing so our presentations sounded flowy. Something I learned about scholarly and student-led research is that the facts must be correct. Presenting in front others gives a feel of presenting in front of the adults that will attend symposium night. I think the collaboration in our group can be better. I the communication between us was not as good as it should have been. Some advice I would give someone is to manage your time and to put hands on focus to the research.
