Scholars Capstone Research Spotlight: Fair Care for All

Lahsen Grich, a recent graduate of Ridge View's Scholars Academy for Business and Law, conducted researched based on the question "What effects do clinicians’ implicit biases have on the health care that minority groups, specifically African-Americans, receive in hospital settings?" for his Senior Capstone Research Project. While his primary focus was on implicit biases, attitudes and beliefs that people may be unwilling or unable to report, he also researched the historical implications, socioeconomic status, income, education, as well as area of living. The basis of his research was conducting interviews with nurses at local hospitals and asking them to take an implicit bias test in order to compare their opinions and beliefs with their results. The implicit bias test used was designed by Harvard and is accessible for anyone to take by clicking HERE. His findings suggest that nurses downplay the significance of implicit biases in the unequal health for African-Americans and Caucasians despite having a bias towards Caucasians, and the fact that nurses believe that patients have a view of them as different creating a barrier between the patient and the nurse.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: Divorce Among Christians

Recent Ridge View Scholars Academy for Business and Law graduate Angel Sara George focused on the issue of divorce among Christians for her Senior Capstone Research Project. According to research, there was a rise in divorce rates in the 1980's, and it has been steadily increasing since that time. These rates are actually higher in the Southern region known as the "Bible belt" than in the Northeastern United States. George was particularly interested in looking into why there is a higher rate of divorce among Christians who have Biblical and parental values. Her hypothesis was that it may be caused by the influence of secular culture. Her research question was: Why do Christians in the Bible Belt Choose to Divorce? To answer this question, George surveyed two groups of people, those above the age of 50 and to those between the age of 21-30. Those 50 and older responded to the questions with their strict interpretation of the Bible. They responded that they based their choices on Biblical teachings, whereas those in the 21-30 age group said they were influenced by their family, peers, Bible and even the media. In their responses, they knew the teachings in the Bible, but took on a more personal, holistic view. You can learn more about her research by visiting her website by clicking on the image or following her on Twitter @Christian_Vows. George is planning on attending the University of South Carolina - Columbia to major in Pharmacy.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: Political Brain

Mainaiya Myers, a recent Ridge View Scholars Academy for Business and Law graduate, focused her Senior Capstone Research Project on the question "how can taking a government course make you more politically aware as a citizen? Her interest in this topic was sparked by the recent presidential election when many misunderstandings were expressed on social media regarding the outcome of the election. Myers used a survey sent out via social media platforms Twitter and Facebook. The overall results of the survey were positive and proved my hypothesis that government courses can increase individual political awareness. You can view the results of this study by visiting her website Elect Your Brain by clicking on the image.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: End Teen Dating Violence

My name is Micayla Hayden.  Prior to graduating from Ridge View as a member of the Scholars Academy for Business and Law, Micayla Hayden focused her Senior Capstone Research Project on how to end dating violence. Statistics show that 1 in 3 teenagers will experience dating violence between the ages of 13 and 18. This means that 1 out of every 3 teenagers you see sitting in a classroom, bagging groceries at your local grocery store, or roaming the mall with friends will be physically, emotionally, or sexually abused by a dating partner, friend, or acquaintance. Having experienced and witnessed dating violence, Hayden has come to understand the signs, the dangers, and the effects of this unspoken abuse, and furthermore, the importance of educating other teenagers. Her research focused on answering the question “Are Public Schools Effectively Educating Teenagers on Teenage Dating Violence?” by conducting a series of interviews with high school students, hoping to gain some insight on teenager’s perception, understanding, and experience with dating violence. Hayden found a complete absence of formal, preventative education resulting in teenagers experiencing dating violence are left to dissolve their abusive situation themselves, with little to no knowledge and little to no resources. Today’s teenagers have not been properly educated on teenage dating violence, and do not understand the signs, dangers, or effects of dating violence. Teenagers are failing to understand the complexity and severity of dating violence, unable to comprehend the realms that such abuse encompasses. You can follow Hayden on Twitter @EndTRViolence!

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: Teen Moms

Qua Daja Harrington, a recent graduate of Ridge View's Scholars Academy for Business and Law, worked on advocating for teen mothers to get the support that they need throughout the United States as part of her Senior Capstone Research Project. Her research centered upon the question “How does society stereotypes affect teenage mothers mentally as well as the people around them?” This case study focused on, the experiences and circumstances of teenage mothers, dealing with teen moms of all race who are enrolled in High School. This project is designed to support teenage mothers who need help and do not get the support that they need, starting from providing for the mother and child while giving them continuous counseling. The key of this project is to be able to show society how much their opinions actually affect teenage mothers. Teenage mothers need more help then they are actually receiving. Most states only have one or two organizations offering help to our teenage mothers. Harrington's research concluded that pregnant teenager’s lack support and are often judged by others. You can follow Harrington on Twitter @strongteenmoms. She will be attending the University of South Carolina Upstate in the fall to major in Nursing.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: Self-Agency in our Girls

Jesni Sam is a recent RVHS Scholars Academy Magnet for Business and Law graduate. For her Senior Capstone Research Project, she investigated how social norms imposed on women affect self-agency in middle school girls. Middle School is an impressionable time for all adolescents. During this time it is important that girls are not taught to limit their abilities but are motivated to chase their aspirations. Previous studies have shown that girls are overshadowed by boys in classes, especially in science. Teachers are more likely to encourage boys to pursue careers in the STEM field than they are to encourage girls. Girls are also less comfortable to voice their opinions and be themselves when there is pressure to never make mistakes. Sam's research was based on observing single gendered classrooms to see how male and female students interacted with their teachers as well as their peers. She also held a focus group with four eighth grade students who were in a single gendered magnet program. The girls reported that they felt less comfortable in classes with boys due to the fear of being judged based on questions they ask or comments they make. They also stated that there are less distractions without the boys in class. Other testimonies included that boys are unwilling to let girls participate in their games. When the boys do let girls join their game, they avoid throwing the ball to them because they believe the girls are incapable of helping them win. Sam concluded that the best way to help girls grow knowing that they are capable of achieving their goals is for adults to be sure not to transfer sexist views on to their students. Parents should also teach girls not to take risk and play it safe. Sam believes that when these precautions are taken society will take a step forward into becoming stronger and more economically stable. She plans on attending the University of South Carolina and major in nursing in the fall.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: ADHD

Grace Justice, a recent graduate of Ridge View's Scholars Academy Magnet for Business and Law, focused her Senior Capstone Research Project efforts on the topic of whether or not teachers are given sufficient, applicable training on how to handle ADHD within the classroom. Justice conducted four interviews, three via the internet, and one face-to-face. These teachers indicated that they did not receive even minimal training, could not tell some of misconceptions from fact, and most could not determine whether ADHD was a purposeful lack of focus or a lack of ability. They also used outdated information, such as using “ADD” as a term, which was retired in 2013. This study found that our teachers are not properly trained in understanding ADHD and how to teach their students with ADHD. More has to be done educate our teachers to provide them with the skills needed to make their classrooms more accommodating for ADHD students.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: School to Prison Pipeline

For her Senior Capstone Research Project, recent Scholars Academy for Business and Law graduate Lynnise Brown investigated the school to prison pipeline. She found that black students are three times more likely to be suspended or expelled than white students, some suspensions beginning as early as pre-k. This pattern is also reflected in our criminal justice system as one in three black males will be imprisoned, making this demography 40% of the U.S. prison population. These same inmates are most likely the same ones that were reprimanded continuously through their pre-k to 12th grade school years. The goal of this project was to highlight a prejudiced juvenile and criminal justice system and to take steps in changing it in order to save students from the pipeline. For his project, Brown interviewed black male students who had been suspended or expelled, as they are more likely to be targeted. From their stories, I have found that racial profiling was involved in their disciplinary punishments and there had been a lack of educator compassion, especially for students of color. A recommendation of this study is more flexible disciplinary policies and for educators to attempt to be more understanding. To find out more information visit Brown's website by clicking on the image or following her @classroomtojail on Twitter. Brown plans to attend the University of South Carolina-Columbia in the fall.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: Depressive Disorders

Recent Scholars Academy Magnet for Business and Law graduate, Chris Kane conducted research this past year for his Senior Capstone Research Project to determine if school districts are actually training teachers to recognize the warning signs of depressive disorders, or suicide, as currently required by federal law. Kane sent an online survey to a randomly selected group of students at a high school, which was designed to determine if students actually received any help or assistance with their depressive disorder or with their suicidal thoughts. A similar survey was sent to teachers to find out if they were being trained to recognize the common warning signs. Of the teachers that responded to the survey, 75% stated that they received no type of training in regards to recognizing the warning signs of depression among their students, and 52.5% stated that they received no training to recognize the warning signs of suicide. In 2014, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that suicide is the second leading cause of death among the ages of 10-24 year-olds. The first leading cause of death is accidents (unintended injury). From these findings, Kane asserts that there is a definite problem-both legally, and in regard to the safety of children. Additionally, exactly one of out of every two respondents claimed that they had considered or had possibly considered suicide themselves. With suicide being the second leading cause of death, some course of action needs to be done to hopefully prevent future cases of suicides. Assuring that all teachers receive the required training to be aware of warning signs is vital to suicide prevention.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: The Life of Gamers

For his Senior Capstone Research Project, Jakob Neiswonger, a recent graduate of Ridge View's Scholars Academy Magnet for Business and Law, set out to answer the following question: What about Gaming Content on Youtube is so popular that the Youtubers are, if successful, paid millions of dollars? To answer this question, Neiswonger conducted interviews with three individuals, who watch gaming content on Youtube. He found that they all started watching gamers at a younger age, all enjoy the commentary, and that some watch it to play the games vicariously through the youtubers themselves. For more information, you can contact Neiswonger by email at jdarlneis@gmail.com, visit his website by clicking on the image, or follow his twitter handle @YourBrainOnVVGs.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: The Effectiveness of GSA's

Madeline Hahn, a recently graduated senior in the Ridge View's Scholars Academy Magnet for Business and Law, conducted her Senior Capstone research project on the impact and effects of having a GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) on high school LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, etc) students. GLSEN (2011) cites GSAs as one of several solutions to the hostile climate facing LGBTQ+ students. Hahn chose a southeastern high school that has an active GSA, where five students ranging in age, race and LGBTQ+ identification, voluntarily answered questions about their involvement with the GSA, their school, and their experience in the LGBTQ+ community. Findings show that the GSA was responsible for an increased sense of belonging and comfortability sharing thoughts and feelings. You can follow Madeline Hahn on Twitter @gsa_foreveryone. Hahn will be studying business at the University of South Carolina this fall.

Scholars Capstone Spotlight: The Memory of Music

Thomas Drummond, a recent graduate from Ridge View's Scholars Academy Magnet for Business and Law, worked on his Senior Capstone Research Project over the last year on how music affects the elderly. He focused on the music from the 1940's era, which is known as swing or big band music.  To test this question, Drummond attended a big band concert and spoke to people in the audience, had some fill out a questionnaire that he designed as well as making his own observations. His findings concluded that the music made them feel younger and had an affect on their memory. Multiple responses were provided by people saying how the music reminded them of people that they were close to when they were younger. For one reason or another, they are separated from these people now, and this music is how they still connect with them. It was also observed that many people danced throughout the concert. Keep in mind that most of these people are 70 plus. Drummond found it amazing that they still remembered dance steps from decades ago.  There was even a man that was in a walker assisted wheelchair that got up and danced with his wife. There were also people that were tapping their feet and bobbing their heads. This shows how much of an emotional and physical affect that music can have on a person. This music specifically reminds them of a culture that they do not get exposed to often anymore, and shows the need for more availability of this genre of music for this age group.
