Homework 1 1/14/12 How do teenagers understand the racial segregation of peer groups at their high schools? There are many ways to go about answering this research question. To start my hypothesis is teenagers understand racial segregation of peer groups in their high school through the activities they participate in. I would use a deductive method to compose my research. The terms used to define the peer groups can be conceived in many different ways and can infer different meanings. I define peer groups in high school as: students involved in school sponsored sports, extracurricular activities and clubs, and the different groups of tables during lunch (such as the popular girls, theater geeks, jocks, the losers, nerds, the groups of friends walking in the halls and sitting in class together). In high school the feeling of constantly needing to be with someone else forms these types of groups. The teenagers in these peer groups are enrolled high school students ranging from freshman to seniors. The issue with this question is racial segregation, teenagers being sectioned off into different groups either by force or choice.
