Mapping the Future Scholars of Freshman Composition II @ Kingsborough College

By MichelleG|May 6, 2015|Mapping, Reflection|2 comments

Kingsborough offers an interdisciplinary freshman course designed to introduce incoming college students to general university studies. Freshman Composition at Kingsborough is a two part sequential course. In our second level course, we have been discussing truth and evidence, which has led them to their final papers, which will be a research paper based on a topic and research question they are interested in learning more about.

This is a map that marks two Freshman Comp sections at KCC. Kingsborough is not the easiest campus to get to, as there is no direct Subway station closer than one mile away. We pinned our neighborhoods to show how far we travel to study at Kingsborough. Within each marker is a blurb describing their research question or interest, what evidence, data or research they expect to find, and one thing they want you all to know about KCC students, or about themselves individually.

As a result, we are a group interested in a wide array of topics and questions, diverse pinning icons and a distance between all of our personal lives and homes., but we unite at Kingsborough College, where I believe they have all grown and will grow tremendously.

Blurb About My Research Question

1. My main research question is about how depression affects teenagers within the United States today. My other questions that supplement my main question are "Does depression contribute to growing sucide rates in the United States?", "Are there any treatments or medications for treating individuals with depression and if so, what are they?", and "Do certain drugs or consuming alcohol increase the severity of depression in teenagers in the United States today?". I am interested in the topic of depression in teenagers because I find it interesting and raises some very important questions for me about our present government and its support systems.

2. I must conduct more research in order to verify the information I find on the topic of depression among teenagers in the U.S. today. However, one thing's for sure, and that is that suicide rates continue to grow for teenagers in the U.S. as a result of depression.

3. One thing I want people to know about me and KCC students in general is that we are hardworking and dedicated to our studies. We are also eager to learn new things.

My research paper is on same sex marriage and the views and beliefs on it. Are people more allowing to it as in the past or are people still against it.

I want to know how people view same sex marriage, some people believe that marriage should be between a man and  women not people of the same sex. I want to view the past thoughts of people and the present views of today and see if anything has changed

Kbcc students for the most part are hard working people who also live far away and some work full time jobs.
Also we cool... . . .  . . . . . .

How does the media as a whole affect politics and the way leaders react to certain issues ? I chose this question because whatever our leaders do affects our everyday lives, whether we like it or not. What they do in regards to passing bills and making laws is a common day to day thing that can change the way we live, so I think it's important to be aware of what's going on around the world.

Is America still racially divided ? This topic peaked my interest because with all the issues that has been happening around the country with the white policeman brutalizing the black men, It lead me to ask myself , could this be an act of racism ? Hopefully after I finish my research, I'll have an answer.

Kingsborough Community College students are very smart, insightful and the most friendly.

What effect does the internet have on our intelligence and ability to learn?

Most of my knowledge, I've acquired online. Being that I went to a school where secular studies was a secondary education, I didn't learn as much as I'd wanted to in school. So I took it upon myself to do my own research on the topics that interest me. However, I see the negative aspects on the internet and I wonder how much of us actually use it for beneficial reasons. There is no doubt that the internet offers many more opportunities for proper education, but at the same time, the internet seems to be the cause of much ignorance. A secondary question I have regarding the topic is: is it possible to lessen the negative aspects of the internet?

One thing I'd like people to know about KCC students are the amount of people that feel unable to complete a class and drop the class because of it. Either people don't know about tutoring on-campus or they don't believe it will help, and they end up keeping their challenges to themselves. I've met quite a few people who dropped a class the first week because they believed they would fail. I don't have a solution, but the solution should probably include methods to prevent students from dropping a class from fear of failing. Inability to pass a class should be the only reason to drop a class, not the fear of the inability.

My research question will be why and how did the advocates work benefited and created for shelters to make a change? I chose to do this for my research paper because I love animals and since animals do not have a voice I decided to write about the advocates that support the animals. All of the animals want great homes and in reality they usually do not get that.

What I think my research will uncover? My research will uncover the truth about the other shelters and how many people get arrested for abusing the animals. Also my research will uncover why the animals get tortured when they did not do anything to anyone but want a nice home and end up getting into homes that are extremely bad.

Students work full time jobs, taking care of their family and go to school to get the best education as well as get a degree.

How have modern social network promote socialism in United States work Places?

Modern social networks (i.e. Facebook, Twitter) have helped promote work place socialism in a positive way. The use of Facebook and other social networks have made communication and information distribution at work places easier. It has also helped promote friendship and close relationships at work places which allows a smooth relationship and a conducive place for all the people to work. Social networks have also made work easier and faster for people. Social networks haven't just promoted socialism at work place but also in all other aspects of life.

Kingsborough Community College students are wonderful and responsible students, they make the campus a lively and interesting place for all to be, it's also a pool of social and friendly people.

My topic that I am researching about is police brutality. I am interested in researching this topic because I feel that it is important for civilian to not feel that police is against the civilian and that civilians should have knowledge about the actions of the police force to change their point of view towards the police.

One thing about the students of Kingsborough Community College is that everyone comes from a different background and we all have different goals they have in life. We all strive for our own specific goal and many opportunities are offered here in Kingsborough Community College that helps us along the way to reach that goal.

  1. My research topic is about: Will society ever view men and women as equals?
  2. From my topic, the truth that I am trying to discover is if that even though today men and women are becoming more equal in the work force, will general society ever see men and women as complete equals. This research will be based off of the media, what people think of women. Why are things more acceptable for men and not for women? For example, running for office. When a women runs for office they are not taken seriously, because it is believed that women should be in the kitchen and taking care of their husband and children. The very idea of a women running for office is laughable. So the truth that this research will hopefully unravel is if peoples' view of women will ever change.
  3. One thing that I would like people to know about KBCC students are that there are many students who are very ambitious and hard working, and who are willing to go academically all the way in order to achieve in the career that they are pursuing.

My research question is how does the media have an effect on women's body image worldwide? I'm interested in this topic because nowadays today's society and media has altered the public's mind to believe that all women should look a certain way to be accepted. I don't believe that women should have to worry about the perfect body image to be accepted by society but sadly that is the world we live in.

One thing that I want the people to know about KBCC students is that this school isn't just a community college for students who aren't smart. We have the same equal education as someone who is attending a university. In the end we all eventually graduate with a degree just like anyone else who did that in a university.

  1. My research question is: What effect does diet have on autism?
  2. My goal in researching this question is to determine whether or not the removal (or introduction) of certain foods will have any effect on the severity of autism in a person. As an aspiring Occupational Therapist, who intends on working with special needs children, I find it interesting that there have been recent studies on whether or not children with autism could be "cured" by the removal of substances such as gluten or dairy from their diet. I hope to determine whether or not diet can truly transform someone from very low functioning (that is, unable to survive on their own in a personal or professional environment) to moderately or highly functioning.
  3. Kingsborough students are extraordinarily dedicated to their work, both in and out of school. Many balance full time jobs as well as their education and taking care of their families. It's been an amazing experience here at KCC to watch how myself and others are able to thrive in this school.

My research question is what effect would free health care have to Americans in The United States? I am interested in this area because it amazes me how much a health care plan costs for basic coverage. People shouldn't have to pay a tremendous amount of money for health insurance if they can barely afford to have enough money to make ends meet.

One thing I want people to know about Kingsborough students is that we work hard and strive to achieve our goals in life.

For my research paper I am going to uncover the secrets and the evolution of the English language. I have recently noticed that over time the English language has drastically changed. The way people spoke in the Shakespearian time period is different than todays short-hand IM-ing and texting language. I'm going to try and uncover why and how this is and what other outside factors contribute to the changes in the English language. Some people might say that these changes are negative but some argue that its just proof of todays accomplishments.  

KCC students are extremely smart and dedicated to their work. We take advantage of all the help they provide and strive for greatness.

My research topic is on the long term effects of childhood obesity and how it influences children. I'm interested in this topic because the problem of childhood obesity has grown considerably in the past few years. 1 out of 3 U.S kids are considered obese which is a serious medical condition that doesn't seem to be taken seriously.

KCC students are always dedicated to their work and are very hardworking. They put in a great amount of effort of being successful and accomplishing their goal.

My topic question or interest is how does cultural appropriation affect a society and if it perpetuates racism or bridge a division of people . I feel as though this topic relates to me and is very interesting to research and dissect.  I am a young women of color so this topic should hit home and strike up a  tasteful conversation. I picked this topic because I know it would controversial to some extent.

 

One thing that I would want people to know about Kingsborough students is that most of us are very ambitious and know what we want to do in life.

Instructor: Michelle G.

I am the instructor of two awesome Freshman Composition courses at Kingsborough Community College.

The course focuses on interdisciplinary research methods and hopes to encourage students to go beyond and dig for the truth and the facts, buried deep within primary and secondary sources, in order to shape our own research and convey our perspectives responsibly and objectively.

About me: I graduated from Kingsborough in 2004. During my time there, I found something sacred--a genuine passion to learn. It was during my time there that I found inquisition and debate thoroughly enjoyable, learned that there was a legitimate way to relay and defend my own controversial theories and discovered the complex beauty of questions unanswered.

Research Interest: I'm interested in gathering data to assess the influence and efficacy (graduation rates, GPAs, enrollment in the Honors program, course completion, etc.)  of interconnected classrooms on community college students. Mapping the Futures and the Futures Initiative have created wonderful and numerous resources that make it possible to even ask this question. Both my Freshman Comp courses share a a forum and a blog spot. They are free to reply to threads and comment on blogs, within or outside their particular section. We all share a main site (CBox) where my classmates and I post blogs about our weekly teaching experiment, in which our students are encouraged to participate. My students are also connected to Mapping the Futures; a course I am taking to inform my own teaching in the Freshman Comp classrooms. In addition, I recently joined the ranks of an ongoing Honors Civic Engagement and Remedial Prehonors collaboration project/study. The galaxy decided all roads this semester would lead to collaboration in and across classes and campuses, across levels and programs. As a final topping, a colleague and I are engaging both our developmental literacy classes in a Pen Pal project, where students write to a student in the other class (a student they do not know) about a book they have chosen to read this semester. I hope to maintain communication with many of these students so I can pursue this study enough to know whether these practices have been helpful for their success at Kingsborough and beyond.

My  research question  is,  Why  I  chose  Ukraine  as  my  part  of  research ? How  the  people  in  Donetsk  live  despite  being  always  under  attack ?   What  is the Ukraine  Economy  is  going  the  right  direction  or  the  wrong  direction  when  the  war  had  already  started?

I  found  this  particular  subject  is  interesting  for  me  because  I'm  from  Ukraine  and  I  want  more  about  Ukraine  situation  crisis.  I also  chose  this  topic  because  I  have my  family  members that  live  in  Ukraine.  I  want  to  discover and  to  know  how the people  live  and  survive  and  what  the people  in  Ukraine  think  of  the  government operates.  

The  one  thing  i  want  people  to  know  about  that  Kingsborough   students  they  work really hard  and  trying  do their  best  by  passing  all the  classes  and  graduate  on time.  As  a   Kingsborough   student  I'm   trying do my  best  every day and every  semester and  It  could  be  sometimes stressful  with the heavy loads of work  but  at the same time  i try my best and work really hard.

My research question is, Are children smarter or more socialized because of the internet/ electronics?

So far I've found out that children do become obsessed or attached to their electronics. Children who are limited to the amount of time their on the internet tend to use their time wisely and are smarter than those who engage in the internet far more than the average kid.

The truth I want to discover is that kids become very interested and often too interested in electronics. They still need time to get in play and exercise to get their body healthy. Being tech savvy isn't a bad thing, it can help you expand academically but too much of it isn't good for you.

One thing I want people to know about KBCC is that many of us have a plan. There are people of all ages, old and young and we're all dedicated to being successful. Being here is an eye opener telling us that it's very too late to be something in life.

My research interest question will be on whats the science behind medical marijuana. Is it effective and why.

I'm interested in this topic because it has been a debate on it being legalized.  If i can find enough evidence on it, then i can be for it or against it.  Also, provide evidence to people who don't have enough information on it.

Coming to kingsborough has changed many things about me.  The way I think, my prospective in life, especially my vocabulary along with many other things.  I can honestly say that many professors are here to really help you, as long as you show interest. I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to come across these wonderful people that have changed my life.

My research interest is abortion. Can we prevent teen pregnancy, if abortion was banned in the United States? I found this topic to be interesting because there are so many conflicts on abortion. I want to discover the statistics on teen pregnancy in the United States for when it was banned and now that it isn't. Is it true that we can prevent teen pregnancy if it was banned and would teens be more careful when they are sexually active or whould they treat it the same way as if its not banned.

Many students in Kingsborough come here to start off their future even though they are undecided of the major. Kingsborough gives people the opportunity to go to a two year liberal arts program and continue their decided major in another school with an associates degree.

How common is racism and does it affect labor and education?

Racism is common among everyone and its impact on education and labor is powerful. I want to know if racism can be removed from the world, if so how? I chose this topic because I recently descovered that many people view other race, religons, and nationalities differently. This can impact, education and labor, I have known  places where people look for workers of different races. These people are popular amongst different states and communities in America.  Even when they dont show racism, thier body language and attepts to sotialize illustrates the extent to how racist they really are. I want to research this because I have come across many individuals who are racist, and it makes me wonder why.

The students in Kingsborough are hard working. From what I know, these students come from different location that are really far from Kingsborough. Not only do they come from far locations, but they work part-time  jobs at the same time. Its hard to imagine going throgh a week with part-time work, along with getting school work done. It also surprizes me how many manaage of these students to do extremely well on their courses. I really respect students that work this hard because in the end they are the ones that become sucessful.

How does UN effect human rights in different countries?

I would like to discover if UN protects human rights every where equal. The reason I chose this topic is today, we notice lot of discrimination among the gender, religion , sex orientation and sex abuse among the women and children. I wonder UN, as a powerful Organization which involves all countries and it's key purpose and guiding principle is "human rights", does effect human rights in those country where it is least granted.

My research question is: Will legalizing marijuana in the US cut down violence mainly within distributor robberies and distributor scams and will it enhance it or cause an uproar in society?

Recently I read an article on legalizing marijuana in the US and how the government felt on this issue. Some government officials really didn't care for the legalizing of this drug. In some ways the drug was more of a pro than a con. Other officials felt otherwise, they felt that society would abuse the use of this drug, and cause more violence in society, now that there was actual laws to have possession of this drug. Their main problem was that the drug numbs your senses, which can result in a negative outcome and/or result in harm. Another dominant point described is the violence that occurs with just the distribution of the drug is pretty crucial. I picked this topic because I know that the legalizing of marijuana is a topic constantly mentioned in the news. But the violence that come hand in hand with the drug isn't. I mainly wanted to learn more so, I can inform others on the pros and cons of the of legalization of this drug, the different views on the violence behind the drugs, and the harm that be caused by the abuse of this drug.

One thing about KBCC students is that we have a desire to want to learn. Although we juggle the life complications of family, jobs, and other personal problems, we push to strive to greatness. We want to better ourselves not just for ourselves, but in general for our families and children. Personally I am beginning the next step in my life as a freshman, and I am driven to be successful. Here at KBCC many of my professors push me past my limits. Limits are crushed and my path of success becomes clearly visible. Now that I am continuing my career in a higher level of basketball, I only see the means to make it.

How does stress effect health?

So far, we know that our body is designed to receive stress and we have no choice but to react to it. Stress can have its positive, for instance, it makes us aware and lets us avoid danger. It can have its negatives, for instance, when we are facing huge challenges and without any relaxation between these challenges leads to negative stress on our body. Stress can lead to physical issues such as headaches, high blood pressure, chest pain and an upset stomach. Stress plays a huge role in alcohol or drug abuse or even depression, anxiety or asthma.

One thing I think people should know about KBCC students is that we are very passionate about what we do and have high hopes to succeed and further our education.

My Research question will be on the Guatemalan Civil war and if it led to a real Democracy.

I am interested in this topic because it has a personal impact on me and my family. Also I want to learn  how the war changed the Guatemalan people and who the major players were.

Being at kingsborough has been a good experience for me. I get to have the chance to take in new ideas and express them in all of my classes.

Research Question: How did J.D. Salinger's book "The Catcher In The Rye" change the governments policy in censorship?

I'm interested in this research because my favorite book is "The Catcher In The Rye" and as a person who can personally relate to the protagonist of the book, Holden, I am interested on how this novel changed censorship policies in America. In the 1950s, people were fairly sensitive and conservative about the media. Even though their was "rated R" type movies back in the day, but parents, schools, and the general public did not want "profound" material out into the public. Salinger took the risk and published a book that reflects on teenagers lives and the reality of America. Holden's pessimism and "teenage angst" almost touched the lives of young adults and teens. For the first time, their was a book that produced raw material on the actuality of living in a "phony" society.

Fun fact: When the murder of John Lennon, Mark David Chapman, was arrested, he was at the scene reading The Catcher in the Rye?

KBCC students are not very intelligent, especially me. However, we are all developing human beings and I feel community college students are no different than people that go to a Ivy League.

My topic that I would like to research more on is gun control. I am interested in this area because the main reason people are dying are because of gun violence. it is very easy to obtain a gun now a days, practically too easy. Since anyone can get a gun this will result in the crime rate raising high.

One thing I want people to know about KCC students is that we are hard workers and motivated to have a good future and reach our goals.

My research is focused on child abuse

I  would like to understand what cause people to abuse children, especially who are smaller and weaker than they are. I am interested in this topic because its  a huge issue that is exist today. Child abuse is not happen only  in United States, it is across  the worlds. I believe that something should be done to stop child abuse, protect kids, and save new generations as well.

KCC's students are hard working people, good looking and friendly.

-What differences, if any, are there in children who are raised by stay- at- home mothers and working mothers? Does society still discriminate against working mothers who wish to have flexible work schedules?
- I am interested in this topic because I aspire to be a working mother and break the mold that women have to stay home, clean and take care of the children. I want to do both.
-Children with working mothers feel neglected. See if sources confirm.
-I want people to know that KCC students are just as studious as the students in any other non- community college.

    - Is suicide a solution ?

2.

   - I was thinking about focusing on memoirs of people that committed suicide, the way the used to see the world, the thoughts they had about life, the origin of the suicidal first thought, their social situation at that moment... I am trying to see if suicide can be understandable when it comes to accepting it as being a choice that the person made and that should be respected. I am also going to research about the juridical point of view about it; if it is considered as a crime. Religion has also different ways of looking at it.

   - Most of kingsborough students have other occupation than just studying. Some students work full time jobs, others are involved into sports which implies devoting a lot of time, others are have a family to take care of. Therefore, hard work is not an option but an obligation for these students to succeed and graduate with the highest grades possible, and they do. Also, there is a huge cultural diversity in  kingsborugh.

My research topic is about privacy.  Should the government wire tap without permission?  I plan to research on how the government wire taps our privacy and why they do it.  I also want to find out how many people are not okay with the government wire tapping our privacy.  I feel that the government can be manipulative and use anything you say or do either its talking on the phone, texting, or using social media against you.  

One thing i want people to know about Kingsborough students is that they like to use Kingsborough as a tool in life that cant take them places either there using it to take them to a better college or trying to gain some two year knowledge for there career.

Should health insurance become more affordable in the United States?


Unfortunately the reality today is that many people work 50-60 hours week, pay taxes, and they still cannot afford to buy heath insurance. Not all the companies are willing to increase their expenses and provide their employees with health insurance plans for free or even for a lower price. At the same time the market price for health insurance is high, and people whose hourly salary is $10-12 hardly can afford additional $200-300 per month to their existing and unavoidable expenses. Therefore, I see the need for changes in our Health Insurance System.

Kingsborough Community College provide people of different age, race, nationality, religion and previous educational base with the opportunity to pursue a degree and get knowledge in different fields without feeling different from others, shy or underestimated.

Is Capital Punishment an ethical issue?

There is a huge debate among people about whether the death penalty acceptable or cruel as a punishment. Does the state have a right to kill its citizens? Most countries have outlawed the capital punishment except China, Iraq and a few states of the United States. I think the death penalty is morally wrong because killing others does not make the state look better. It violates the universal human right to live.

KBCC provides good education for its students. Many people think that the community colleges are easy and don't accept them seriously. However, they provide an excellent education for students. I personally love KBCC!!!:)

What is your research question or research interest? My research interest heavily relies on the essence of language. I am fascinated with the nature of language because, languages represent culture, personality, and diversity, and helps us distinguish the differences and similarities amongst us. What truth do you want to discover? I want do discover the true equivocal nature of language, in other words how can a term in one language harbor one essential meaning whereas, in another language that same term can articulate multiple meanings simultaneously. Is the etymological structure of language important? As languages continue to evolve will it still remain possible to translate?

Since I am enrolled in Kingsborough Community College, I am able to experience a school with a nice diverse demographic of students capable of  communicating in many different languages.
