How did some preliminary information you gathered inform your research?
I was able to identify a more specific topic to research and get a feel for
What evidence did you gather that you didn't include? Why did you choose not to include it?
I didn't include information on career paths or scholarship opportunities for athletes and those benefits because I didn't feel like it best fit my focus for my main idea of the mental health benefits of sports.
How did your research question evolve as you moved through the research process?
Throughout my research, I enhanced my research question to be more specific and narrowed towards the message I wanted to convey.
Did your research go in a different direction than you originally expected?
I originally had in mind focusing on the mental health benefits surrounding sports in general regardless of age, but I went into a bit of a different direction talking specifically about how it can help teenagers and college students reduce stress, since they are the population that experience the most stress.
What information did you need that you weren't able to find or locate?
I couldn't really find any specific information on how sports cause students an immense amount of pressure, because most of them viewed sports in a positive light.
How did you approach and synthesize the differing perspectives in order to reach a conclusion?
I approached differing perspectives by using sources written by scientists, professors, and sports doctors all contributed to me reaching a conclusion. I got a scientific perspective through studies done by scientists, professors talking about student stress in relation to sport participation, and the explanation of how through doctors and the Mayo Clinic. Also, I included the perspective of college students through the Ohio University which helped provide first hand knowledge.
What additional questions emerged from your research? Why are these questions important?
Some questions that emerged included, "How can sports be used as a catharsis for athletes or students?" And "How can students who may not have enough money be encouraged to participate in sports?" These questions are important because they are necessary in finding an overall solution for every student, no matter their circumstances.
What are the implications of your findings to your community?
I think my findings can benefit the community by creating more useful spaces for students to play sports and relax. This can encourage parents to get their children involved in sports or be physically active with them so as to help them reduce stress. Also, schools, foundations, and the government can start providing money or grants to help give students resources to be able to participate in sports.
How is your conclusion in conversation with the body of literature or other research sources you examined?
My conclusion incorporates the key information I researched through articles, charts, studies, and perspectives.
How did you use the conclusions or questions of others to advance your own research?
I used other's questions to make my research more specific on the topic I wanted to focus on. Other people's conclusions allowed me to deepen my understanding and to incorporate various perspectives.
