This article is a review about 13 reasons why. It is full of personal ancedotes gathered from different parents. I enjoyed this because it had views and opinions from both side of the bandwagon. There were some who supported it and others who did not. Like anything in life, someone will always have a problem with it or disagree and this tv show is one of them. The creators were obviously not trying to do any harm but to better inform its viewers of the reality of highschool. It even is helpful in the sense that you would know what to look for when someone is having suicida, thoughts. Some parents said they watched it with their children and gathered to discuss it. They felt this was a good system. Others strongly suggest viewer disgression. This format fits like many others. It has what is important enlarged and in bold.
This podcast is about the controversial Netflix show “13 Reasons Why.” It is the sad and unavoidable truth that teenagers are so overwhelemd and driven by depression, that they feel taking their own life’s is their best option. These cases rarely involve one victim alone. Educators are very concerned that this show will encourage suicide rates but what about violent video games? What about bullying at school? “13 Reasons Why” covers it all. It discusses adolescent cruelty in ways some people can’t handle. I don’t think this show is appropriate for all ages but I don’t think that it isn’t something that can be ignored.
I really like this article because it is unlike the rest that I have read. It isn’t nit bias to one side, but instead, looks at the concerns of adults, the cautions, and tips for educators. This article also points out that school plays a big role in preventing youth suicide. A young child is at school more than they are home. School should be a safe place for kids. It should not be somewhere they dread going or somewhere where they are in constant fear. In the show 13 reasons why, the bullying Hannah baker experienced all took place at school. I think this show is really an eye opener. For educators to be aware of what kinds of things are happening in the school environment as well as being aware of the signs one might show when going through rough times. I appreciate the positivity of this article.
The article is disucsses 13 Reasons why. It is being denounced by educators and experts for the ways in which it tackles suicide. This article, along with another I have looked at have a unique formatting. The author chose to bold and enlarge the important claims that were made. I am interested in mocking something like this. This article also discusses a review given by Paris Jackson, Michael Jackson’s daughter, of this series. She posted a strictly negative outlook on her twitter account and advised all teenagers to avoid watching it. I think that reviews like this, from people of high status, are dangerous. I believe this because whether viewers agree with these famous people are not, they are likely to follow the crowd. Are people following the crowd when writing reviews?
All of the articles on this topic all have a common trend. All of the, look at the shows depiction of suicide as something negative a series oppose to something positive. There have been thousands of reviews from mental health programs, school educators, as well as parents discouraging students from watching this show. In fact, this article in particular states that schools across Canada took steps in order to ban kids from talking about it in the school environment. Although, not one article has mentioned that suicidal thoughts is reality for a numerous amount of people. Some could have seen this show as comfort, knowing that they aren’t the only ones. That they aren’t alone. I think it is difficult concept for adults to grasp because no single parent would want to think that their child could relate to this series.
This article is a review of the Netflix series, “13Reasons Why.” What really drew me into this article was its hook statement. “With good mysteries, as with news reports from Florida, the ‘why’ is usually more interesting than the ‘who.’ Character isn’t found in behavior, it’s found in the emotional responses to, and inspiration for, behavior. ” It was a thought provoking sentence that really had me thinking. Unlike most bashing reviews of this series, this article goes on to talk about the show in a more positive manner. It does not critique the plot line but how well it was executed, which I also found interesting. This article is opinion which isn’t always effective. I appreciated the new angles given to me by this author.
This article does not pertain to my topic, however, I appreciate the structure of this article. Before the author overloads you with text, they give you a picture. It catches attention with its vibrant colors. Throughout the article, claims that were of higher importance were displayed as such. The were made bold, the font size was enlarged, and some were italicized. I think mimicking this structure would definitely be something that I would take interest in doing.
This article is yet another review of this series. It raises thought provoking questions to its audience along with statistics. Some of these that were interesting to me were, “Google queries about suicide rose by almost 20 percent in 19 days after the show came out, representing between 900,000 and 1.5 million more searches than usual regarding the subject.” Concerns talked about during this article are did this series lead to “copycat” suicide attempts. “What the study does show is that art and entertainment have real power, and that as patterns of media consumption change, directors and producers don’t have the luxury of imagining their work in a vacuum.” — but is this really the only show that promotes suicide? Why aren’t violent video games and movies spoken poorly about?
This article immediately begins with a brief description of the tv show using personal anecdote. The article shifts from using personal anecdotes to strictly expert quotes. Quotes that I found interesting that I could potentially use in my own paper are “On average, 1 in 5 teenagers have contemplated suicide, a figure Avi Astor calls ‘astounding.’” “Social factors, such as the incidence of discrimination and bullying at a school, explain 55 percent of suicidal thoughts. That's compared with 20 percent that is explained by a student's individual characteristics, like gender and experiences of victimization.” I really like this one because I AM a teenager in highschool. This highlights the different types of bullying related to gender, victimization, sexuality, and so forth. I think is interesting that these forms are not discussed at school even though it covers 20% of suicidal thoughts. Questions that are raised from this article : do we not talk about bullying about gender and sexuality because we go to a Christian school?
I picked this article because the format is SO COOL. This article is formatted as the script to a podcast. This was part of a school project in order to mock this particular series. 13 different students gathered together to record themselves telling their personal stories. These were then shared over the intercom during the morning announcements. They each spoke lines from the original show acting as “one person.” I really liked how this article was formatted. I really am interested in mocking this structure for my paper.
