Teens Get an Early Start in Research Techniques
Byline: Wallace & Smith
Doing intensive research is a skill that many students don't begin to learn until they reach college.
But Palatine High School teacher Robert Gilbert and 16 of his students took on the task of producing a how-to book of sorts about doing research for social science courses. The book is called, fittingly, "Doing Survey Research in the Introductory Social Science Course."
The students wrote papers for the book on such weighty topics as "The Effect of Dating Relationships on Stress," "Closeness of Male High School Students to Same Sex Parent and Effect on Dating Relationships," "The Effect of Work Status of Mother on GPA of Children" and "Caught in a 'Mosh': Parental Marital Status and Heavy Metal Music."
