So, I've done a little more with my paper. I've found more sources that I can use. Unfortunately my sources are limited because it is a recent topic. I hope that I can find enough soures to write my paper.I have found out that by delaying school start times, teens awareness has imporved. Also, it causes less teen accidents. I'm starting my bibliographies.

I revised my research paper question. I am now asking "Should we revise school start times for teens? If so, what are the obstacles." I want to find out how many hours of sleep a night teens are supposed to get. It would also be nice to find articles on schools that have changed their start times and the results. I'm assuming that the results are mostly negative, but you never know.

Research Paper

So we started working on our research papers yesterday. We went to the computer lab to create blogs. I got my idea for my paper. It has to do with school start times. The question I hope to answer by the end is "Are school start times to early?" I want to know if starting school early in the morning is preventing kids from staying focused throughout the school day.
