The community group that I have decided to work with and research about is Youth (between ages of 15 – 24 years). My research will be based on the issues of concern for youth and assess their impact on overall wellbeing. The issues or concern in which I will include are teen pregnancy and obesity in teenagers.
Justification: * My reason for choosing Youth as my topic is because I believe in researching what the community is for and against in certain issues that can cause an impact on and overall wellbeing. I chose Teen Pregnancy as one of two issues as it is focused on the age group between 15 and 24. Teen pregnancy has been an issue since the 1900’s and I am interested to see the statistics of how common it is and if it has decreased or increased within the past 50 years. During this research I will also look into how common and the effects obesity in teenagers. Australia has been proven to be the world’s obese country. By researching this chosen topic I believe I can learn a lot from what the community and youth have to say about teen obesity. By sending out surveys and showing the effects of what obesity can do to you. I hope to change the ways of people who are on the verge of obesity as my research will include the effects of what obesity could do to your body and overall wellbeing. Researching these particular issues I hope I am able to change the minds of people in the younger generation more than the older as the future is in the hands of the younger generation and if they are aware of the consequences and gain better knowledge of Teen Pregnancy and Obesity in Teens, they will hopefully be able to change the overall wellbeing on the youth aged between 15 and 24. * * Description of the Primary Research Metholodologies to be used. Including Sampling Process: * Surveys and Questionnaires: I have recently created a survey on the website www.surveymokey.com and I
Bibliography: entries must be written in a very specific format, but that format will depend you the particular style of writing you use. I will use a bibliography to show the references I have used for my research plan. Including my surveys and interviews I have used, each person is a reference. Appendix An appendix is supplied at the end of a report as an extra material. Examples of an appendix are copies of my surveys and the recordings of my interviews. I will use an appendix in my report to show further knowledge and an understanding of the issues. Presentation of report My report will be presented as a book. I will create the book so the pages are my report on each page. I have sketched the design of my book and have been in contact with people from big w and they are able to help me create my book for my IRP. Selecting appropriate diagrams and illustrations I will include pictures of teen mothers and videos of how teen mothers cope. If they are still in school and continuing to get an education. The diagrams I have for teen pregnancy are the statistics I have found and I will create graphs showing the statistics. I will also use the diagrams I have listed or obesity in teenagers as well.
