According to the National Household Survey on drug use and health services, 74.3% of high school students have tried alcohol because of peer pressure (www.familyfirstaid.org). Ray Bradbury's short story, ''All Summer in a Day" shows how Margot is a victim of peer pressure because of the other students incapability to stand up for her because of a bully.

In classrooms all across America, high school students have spent time analyzing and learning from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. They spend an excess of time examining the relationships between Nick and people he surrounds himself with. However, most often teachers and students conveniently skip over a glaring detail: Nick’s sexuality. The Great Gatsby is believed to be heavily influenced by Fitzgerald’s life, including, perhaps, his struggle with his own sexuality. In examining events in Fitzgerald’s life, as well as evidence from The Great Gatsby, there is more than meets the eye.
I chose The Breakfast Club because it is a classic movie that I never get tired of. This movie deals with five students in high school who are all in a Saturday detention. The faculty member is cruel to them and they just try to have fun while serving detention for eight hours on a Saturday.

This movie has six main characters, all of who are either in high school or teach in school.
Evidence of those changes were inherent in the way young people described social behavior, alcohol, cigarettes and other factors of those times.” (Bulletin) Currently, there are words to describe the social situations young people find themselves in, just like the young of the past. Instead of “speakeasies” that are used to bypass the law, young college students of today create “safe spaces” on college campuses because the law isn’t doing enough to protect them against hate crime. Everything about the social movement in those times is reflected back in the current era, as well as most of the eras in between them. Society is constantly progressing to improvement, and language can reflect that drastically (Bulletin). To conclude, slang from the 1920s has impacted language used in the current era.

John Hughes’s film The Breakfast Club (1985) resonates with certain modern-day stereotypes of high school students. The film also reflects on how much damage that social status and labels have on people, especially during adolescence. Hughes’s film breaks down the emotional barriers between ordinary high school students of different backgrounds through typecasting. As the actors take on the general roles of students that can be found in most high schools, the narrative of the story begins to drastically change as the characters are revealing their backgrounds with each other. As a result of using this technique, the film reveals the external and internal struggles that most adolescent children deal with in their lives.
The Social Control Theory applies to the Reclaiming Futures Program as well because these youth offenders have such poor bonds with their family, friends and community around them. Getting into this program, their lives would change because they would be shown bond types from within the program. The fact that there are five main participants in the program just shows that there is hope for their lives with making bonds and feeling wanted and loved. The Judges, The Juvenile System, Adolescent Substance Abuse Counselors, Community Members, Project Director all work together just shows them something to look up to.

A tension between Indian parent and their children is how close of a family they are as opposed to American Families. In American society it’s not rare for teenagers to be autonomous, but children from different backgrounds (immigrant families) face a problem when they try to be autonomous. “Young Indian- Americans of high school and college are comparing themselves with their non-Indian classmates, and repeatedly express frustration at their own parents efforts to restrict their movements, monitor their behavior and make decisions for them”( Lessinger, 109).

Then you’ll feel better.’ “ There are many of these examples depicted online, and while some may find them “stupid” or “whiny” you must take the time to consider that just like a physical illness, a mental illness is serious. This is why, in high schools and middle schools where we don’t have counselors available for children and teenagers who most obviously need help, the problem could evolve into one of much more severity. An example of this could be a child who has separated parents, but a great school life. Said child is popular at school, but one day a classmate notices that whenever the two have playdates, they almost always go to one of two different houses, and now they’ve singled out a child who is different. Now, because of his parent’s separation, he is distanced from both his peers and teachers, and now his grades began to plummet.
