Quarter 1 Assessment: Annotated Bibliography Thesis Statement: Due to adolescent sleep patterns, school needs to start at 10:00AM Source 1: The UCLA Health website tells how teenage sleep patterns differ from adults, due to changing bodies, and internal sleep clocks. This informational database is based on college research. The title of this page is “Sleep and Teens”.
Students are being woken up in the middle of a deep sleep. Being an alumnus of Melrose High School, I also remember the exhaustion I felt during the week. This can be detrimental to not only the learning but also their health. Sleep deprivation increases risk taking behavior, substance abuse, and impedes judgment and decision making ability. Many districts have taken part in this time shift.
Many people have experienced what it is like to be so desirous to have something they make an awful decision based off of what they want so badly. In the short stories All Summer in a Day and Zero Hour inexperienced children react to their desire for something they don’t have. However, In All Summer in a Day the young ones are transformed into callous bullies, while in the meantime the kids in Zero Hour lose sight of what's important and team up with strangers. Overall these two stories by Ray Bradbury share an important theme.
Sleepless in American is a National Geographic documentary on the lack of sleep Americans are receiving each night. The film starts with the statistic that “40% of American adults are sleep deprived” and followed with different effects of sleep deprivation such as: weight gain, delayed reaction time, depression, anxiety, speeds the growth of cancer, and has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Although, there is no scientific evidence to support the need for sleep, it is an important process that allows our bodies to function properly. Several sleep studies have been performed to understand the effects sleep deprivation has on a person. The participants of the sleep trial only received four hours of sleep per night.
The amount of students getting less than 7 hours of sleep every night went down by 97.4% from the time of the first survey to the second. Those who were receiving 8 or more hours a night increased all the way from 16.4% to 54.7% (Burke 37). Although the number of students reporting bad quality of sleep and short sleep duration decreased significantly from the first survey to the next, students still had difficulty falling asleep several times a week (Burke 37). The second survey also reported a decrease in fatigue, sleepiness during the day, and symptoms of depression. Most health-related issues and complaints such as class attendance and visits to the school 's nurse’s office also decreased from the first survey to the other (Burke
A reason for this is that waking up too early could be dangerous. In highschool students begin to learn to drive, some owning their own cars to drive to school (Pietrangelo and Watson). When they have to wake up early in order to drive to school they may be too tired for it to be considered safe for them to drive on the roads. This leads to car crashes that leaves their lives and the person who they hits life in danger. Not to mention those who are close enough to walk to school also may be too tired to properly pay attention.
Lauren T. and Ray Bradbury used different approaches to convey similar theme in the drama “the day Mrs.parks was arrested” and the short story “All day in a Summer”. The theme they share is that anything can happen. I say this because know one knew that Mrs. Parks would go to jail that day to prove it in “The day Mrs.Parks got arrested “it says,” Pauline:Daddy,what’s happening?Mr. Joseph: I’m not sure.” In the quote it shows how the people didn 't know what was going on.
With exceptional haste we begin to recite our knowledge of the human mind. As is stated in The Twenty-Four Hour Mind by Rosalind D. Cartwright, sleep allows our brain to consolidate our experiences and memories of the day (Cartwright 30) while we lay in a semi-vegetative state (Cartwright iix). The consequences of lack of sleep are evident in studies performed on individuals who suffer from insomnia. In “Sleep in the Workplace: What the Psychologist-Manager Should Know About Sleep”, the article highlights the cognitive effects that lack of sleep can have on an individual including impaired working memory, learning capability, and decision-making (Gaulltney & Collins-McNeil 135). Our rational mind dismisses Murakami’s obvious fictional short story and dismounts every claim that a human could survive without sleep.
Shaden Tweeten English III Mr. Bertelsen 9 November 2016 Starting School Later: A Benefit for All Everybody knows it: a teenager’s favorite activity to do is sleep. In fact, for some teenagers, it seems as though that is all they do. This may not be a case of laziness however, since recent studies have said that a teenager’s sleep rhythms make it difficult for them to go to sleep and wake up early. Unfortunately, teenagers have to break their rhythms often with their involvement in school programs that have them up in some cases as early as 5:00 A.M. Students are tired, and can barely make it through the day without falling asleep.
Research has shown that parental social control improves youths’ sleep habits (Maume, 2013). Without regulation and supervision of parents, it is likely that these students would not have self control to have regular sleep hours, leading to poor sleep quality. MACRO-LEVEL ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS Macro-level environmental factors are often undervalued in terms of their importance in affecting how much sleep we get.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine believes that it can do much more than just improve records. They state that it could also help with mental health and psychological well being. Pamela McKeever reciprocates their opinion belief, saying “So much research explains the impact of insufficient sleep on suicide, substance abuse, depression, auto accidents and more,” (Crist). According to the CDC, suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death among 12-19 year olds. Sleep deprivation is a serious problem that causes a wide array of problems, but we can start to solve it by pushing back school start times.
Sleep deprivation is the lack of sleep needed to function to full potential. While college is known for staying up all night, and cramming for exams, this term of sleep deprivation is starting to take a serious toll. Over the years the sleeping patterns of students attending college and universities has changed dramatically. Studies show that as time goes on the average night of sleep students are getting is decreasing drastically (Jensen, 2003). The way students are falling into this lack of sleep are by forming an irregular sleep-wake cycle, which consists of getting little to no sleep during the week, then on weekends catching up on all the missed sleep.
Introduction Good morning everyone. I’m Nur Atiqah binti maznan and today I will deliver a speech title ‘People should care more about sleep’ Most of us in this class will say that we not get enough sleep because of all assignments, lab reports and so on like just now. So, we called this situation as sleep deprivation which means a condition where people not get enough sleep. We are in the same shoes, so no worries. A research from Brown University stated that, from a survey they conducted to a group of college student, 11% student have a good sleep but the rest which is 73% from the same study were found to have a sleep problem.
