Introduction

Report Section one Plan When we started this coursework there were a lot of things that our group did in order to come up with the correct topic that we could base our work on. It took quite a while for us to come up with our final decision on the topic we would use; it took votes, suggestion and finally decision. We thought our topic should be based on something we are used to hearing about and seeing, which is also directly related to citizenship. The topic we ended up settling on was drugs. We thought drugs would be a good topic to work on because the use of drugs has increased massively. What most young people don't know about drugs is how dangerous they can be, and the consequences you can face by taking or dealing with them. We also concluded that children around our age (teenagers) can be easily dragged into a regular use of drugs which could change them effectively, so as we went along with our task we tried to find out what this lead to drugs could be as best we could for example we made questionnaires. ...read more.

Sameer was the leader of our group he made all the meetings strictly and we knew we could not miss any of them as we agreed to accept punishment if we did not attend a single meeting. He was also the one who made sure we didn't spend too much time fooling about as it would disrupt the flow of our work. As well as that Sameer also keep the minutes and made sure we always tried our best to keep ahead of time. Julian on the other hand was the one that made the questionnaires and surveys to see how many children use drugs and how they get into them. He also had to go out of his time to ask people from different areas along with me once in a while, for example we asked children from our school, around his area, Sameer area, my area and also others. Section 2 Activities 1) Firstly we went into groups we thought would suit us which we would not be disturbed by any members which may have been friends. ...read more.

Conclusion

We also took this into our hands because we know that as children sending out a poster will attract others to look, because we know children's interest more and so will be able to make it as eye catching as possible which will be more useful than if an adult attempted to do it. After researching we have a lot of knowledge on drug and know what is wrong. Section Three Websites http://www.acde.org/youth/Research.htm http://www.aic.gov.au/research/drugs/types/ http://www.talktofrank.com/home_html.aspx Videos http://www.talktofrank.com/section.aspx?ID=114 * Love story * Under pressure * House party gone wild Books * Buzzed * From chocolate to Morphine Booklets * Drug awareness journal I looked at a lot of websites to get as much information as possible. There were two websites which helped me get good information which I could cut down into brief for my poster. They helped me get an exact description on how each drug affects the body long and short term. Some websites had easier and more explanations whereas others had longer descriptions explaining in detail everything that was needed to understand. Since they were explained in rather mature context I myself had to change how the points were explain and make it clearer and easier with all the important pars of information involved. ...read more.
