This article, along with many others, is another negative review about the show. All of the articles on this topic all have a common trend. All of them look at the shows depiction of suicide as something negative. What this article does not mention is that kids go through trauma everyday that leads them to believe that suicide is their only option. It IS reality for a numerous amount of people. I think it is difficult concept for adults to grasp because they could potentially felt to blame for their children's discomfort.
This article is a negative review of the Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why. The author shares the personal experiences she went through as she watched it. She strongly discouraged others, especially those who have contemplated suicide in the past. Her main claim was, "Although I found the show to be beautifully made and undeniably impactful, it became clear I was not the show’s intended audience." However, this negative review differs from the rest when she said, "As a woman and a suicide attempt survivor who still struggles with mental health, I didn’t find “13 Reasons Why” to be unrealistic. Rather, I found it to be such a dark but accurate portrayal of familiar experiences that it triggered emotional responses I didn’t expect."
This article is sexual assault statistics. It offers up the idea that "this is what an epidemic looks like," which is a really interesting way to look at it. Quotes that I would like to include are: "Every single day more than 570 people experience sexual violence in this country." "17,700,000 - The estimated number of women who have been the victims of rape since 1998." Sexual assault is obviously something that happens way to often. This can destroy a human completely and should not be tolerated. I, among many others, show no mercy to the people who think that this is acceptable. It can also tarnish the relationships that one may build in the future.
This article consists of many reviews of the Netflix series 13 reasons why. I chose this article because it gives a rating fro experts, parents, AND kids. It also has the show's scores for 6 categories. These categories are: positive messages, positive role models and representations, violence, sex, language, and lastly, drinking, smoking, and drugs. Most parents say that the drugs, smoking, and drinking is not something that kids should be watching on TV. It's funny to me because they're failing to acknowledge reality. Stuff like that happens no matter where you are or how old you get.
This article consist of a powerpoint with 13 questions parents should ask themselves about 13 Reasons Why. These thought provoking questions included: "Why should you be concerned?" "Would you want to be a teen again?" "Are you facing the fact?" "What shouldn't you do?" "Is the tv series helpful or dangerous?" "What are others saying about the show?" "Are you making time to listen, and if so, are you really listening?" "Do you understand the stress that your child is facing?" "Do you know their friends or boyfriends/girlfriends?" "What shouldn't you do if your teen loses friends?" "Do you understand why your teen is taking risks?" "Do kids really understand their actions?" "Where can you find more information?"
This article is talking about the positive impacts of the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why. I really like that the opening sentence was a question. It immediately got the reader to shift perspectives. It gives a brief explanation of the story without boring the reader. Interesting statistics regarding the positive impact the show had on youth viewers included: "According to the study, 78% of viewers believed that the series helped them understand that their actions can have an impact on others. Seventy three percent decided to be more considerate about how they treated other people following their view of season 1. Fifty one percent said they reached out to someone they hurt after being inspired by Hannah and Clay's story." It also mentioned that after watching, many sought out realize information concerning the topics covered to educate themselves. I really enjoyed reading this article and hope to mock it in my own paper.
This article is about season 2 of 13 Reasons Why, Hannah's story is not over. I chose this article because the second season is going out on May 18th. I found this interesting considering how many negative reviews came out about season 1. This article raises questions such as: Will suicide rates go up? Will audiences have a different outlook on the shower after this season? Will the show be taken off of Netflix? Will a 3rd season of this series come out?
This article is al about sexual assault statistics. I choose this article because there is a scene in 13 Reasons Why where the main character, Hannah Baker, gets raped by her fellow classmate. She then notes in one of her tapes that he played a big part in why she killed herself. Some statistics that I found were: "1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime." "On average, there are 321,500 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year in the United States." "82% of all juvenile victims are female. 90% of adult rape victims are female." "Females ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault." These stats were presented in interesting infographics which was something I enjoyed.
This article gives audiences a rundown of the Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why. It explains how the show tells the story of a teenager’s suicide through audio tapes listened to by a classmate. Each tape details why Hannah blames specific people for her suicide. What was interesting to me about this article was this particular quote, "He said one scene, which shows a school guidance counselor failing to identify dangerous behaviors displayed by Hannah, could prevent students from confiding in their school counselors." Experts are so quick to judge and commonly oversee how the show could have a positive impact. One could rather look at that scene as a red flag to school counselors. It is up to the schools faculty and administration to create an environment where kids feel comfortable.
This article is a Washington post about the netflix series, 13 Reasons Why. This article's title is in bold and i several font sizes larger than the rest of the article which is something I like. They also introduce the topic with a picture. I also enjoyed how they compared the book to the movie while reviewing the storyline. Selena Gomez says, "We wanted too do it in a way that was honest and we wanted to make something that could hopefully help people because suicide should never be an option."
This article is also bullying statistics. It promotes the idea that there is a strong link between bullying and suicide. I plan to use the following statistics from this article in my paper. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year, according to the CDC. For every suicide among young people, there are at least 100 suicide attempts. Over 14 percent of high school students have considered suicide, and almost 7 percent have attempted it. Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying 10 to 14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying
This article is full of bullying statistics. I would like to use some of these in my paper. These include: “Rates of bullying vary across studies (from 9% to 98%). A meta-analysis of 80 studies analyzing bullying involvement rates (for both bullying others and being bullied) for 12-18 year old students reported a mean prevalence rate of 35% for traditional bullying involvement and 15% for cyberbullying involvement (Modecki, Minchin, Harbaugh, Guerra, & Runions, 2014).” “43% of bullied students report notifying an adult at school about the incident. Students who report higher rates of bullying victimization are more likely to report the bullying (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016).” “A slightly higher portion of female than of male students report being bullied at school (23% vs. 19%). In contrast, a higher percentage of male than of female students report being physically bullied (6% vs. 4%) and threatened with harm (5% vs. 3%; (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016).”
This article is a review of the Netflix series, Stranger Things: Season 2. I chose this article because it is a review of a Netflix series, which is essentially what I am going to do with my paper. This article is formatted in such a always that is please to the eye. Each review is scarpttered on the page and separated by individual thought bubbles. Although messy, it is still organized. There are sections for both, critic reviews, as well as audience reviews. Mimicking this style would be an interesting approach that I am willing to try.
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 article is about bullying and ways to prevent it. Bullying can happen ANYWHERE. To prevent bullying it gives you ways on how to create a safe environment. These include: Establish a culture of inclusion and respect that welcomes all students. Reward students when they show thoughtfulness and respect for peers, adults, and the school. “Make sure students interact safely. Monitor bullying “hot spots” in and around the building. Students may be at higher risk of bullying in settings where there is little or no adult monitoring or supervision, such as bathrooms, playgrounds, and the cafeteria.” “Enlist the help of all school staff. All staff can keep an eye out for bullying. They also help set the tone at school. Teachers, bus drivers, cafeteria staff, office staff, librarians, school nurses, and others see and influence students every day. Messages reach kids best when they come from many different adults who talk about and show respect and inclusion. Train school staff to prevent bullying.” “Set a tone of respect in the classroom. This means managing student behavior in the classroom well. Well-managed classrooms are the least likely to have bullying.”
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.
This article is all about bullying. It discusses the idea that the effects of child-on-child bullying being worse than maltreatment from adults. The author touches on the many things that are classified as bullying. It can appear everywhere and anywhere. The results of a study that recently done state that children who are bullied by their peers suffer more than if they are bullied by adults. Children are constantly surrounded by their peers whether it be in school or on the weekends. A statement that I could use in my paper that I found very interesting is, "Bullying is comparable to a scenario for a caged animal," he said. "The classroom is a place where you're with people you didn't choose to be with, and you can't escape them if something negative happens."
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.
This article discusses suicide from the prespective of someone who has personally had suicidal thoughts. I chose this article because the uthir goes over the negative AND positive aspects of the show. Some of the positives that were mentioned include: Perceiving True Quantity and Effect of Trauma, learning to recongize signs, you’re not alone, social connection, etc. I think that writing from the outside perspective and having to see what my brother struggled through is going to be an interesting perspective. Although, I do not believe that EVERYTHING in the show is beneficial. I will be sure to include both sides of the argument in my paper.
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?
This article is an opinion article about procrastination. It’s main point is that delaying the completion of a project may actually make you more creative. Throughout the article, the author refers to procrastination as a plague. This is something that I found really fun. I think that in a way, the nature of caring and wanting to help people can act as a plague as well. It is beneficial to lots of people but sometimes may not be beneficial to yourself. I think this idea could play a role in my paper. I also enjoy the authors style of writing. It was very conversational which I enjoyed. I felt as if he was talking TO ME as opposed to talking AT ME.
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 about a woman who’s friend is so say addicted to her smartphone. I chose this article because it is an opinion article. I am going to be writing a television review, which is opinion. This author included expert reviews. Her writing style is very conversational which is something I am interested in doing. I feel like sometimes this tone is more effective as opposed to something more boring and straight to the point.
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’s main claim is that bullying is a repeated physical or verbal aggression that involves an imbalance of power. I chose this article because I can use statistics in my own paper. The Netflix show that I am analyzing is about bullying and suicide and that is another reason why I chose this article. Statements that I like and could potentially use are: Teachers often underestimate how much bullying is occurring at their schools. Parents tend to be aware their child is being bullied only about half the time. There are a number of approaches that victims and bystanders of bullying, as well as parents, school, and work personnel can use to discourage bullying at school or in the workplace. This article touches on what bullying is, how common bullying actually is, and how to distinctly tell what qualifies as bullying.
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 is another article about bullying. What’s different about this one is that it encourages parents to be educated about bullying even though they may not think that it effects their children. It gives parents realistic tips and discusses ways on how to prevent this. Although parents do play a role in preventing bullying, it is up to the school and students. Kids are surrounded by their peers more often than one would think. A school day isn’t typically 7 to 8 hours long. As one can imagine, school could become hell on earth for those who are bullied. Teachers and faculty should be well aware of signs and be educated on how to help a child in need.
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.
