Consultation Summary

Bolded the rough thesis

My research paper is about depression among teenagers. During the consultation with Professor Lawrence, he helped me narrow down one of the possible answer from using electronic devices to the influence of social media to my research question. Moreover, Prof. Lawrence solved my concern by searching more terms if there is not enough information. In addition, professor provided me a structure for my rough thesis. It is been shown that teenage depression has increased by 59% between 2007 and 2017, I believe the potential causes include dietary patterns, social media influence and high social and academic expectations. (Geiger, A., & Davis, L., 2020) One research I found is about teenage victims of school bullying present low school achievement and further lead to depression. (Bowes, L., Joinson, C., Wolke, D., & Lewis, G., 2015) Another research, takes place in in Saudi Arabia, demonstrate students are more likely to smoke under high pressure, there is a positive correlation between smoking and depressive, anxious symptoms. (Al-Subaie, A. S., 1998) These two sources are both scholarly and peer-reviewed research, they could tie to my thesis statement since the high social and academic expectations reinforce students’ stress and anxiety levels then potentially lead to teenage depression. I’m hopeful that I will discover more evidences to support my thesis statement by researching keywords such as “teenager”, “adolescents”, “depression”, “stress”, “dietary pattern”, and more.
