Homework 11/14/12How 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 isteenagers understand racial segregation of peer groups in their high school through the activities theyparticipate in. I would use a deductive method to compose my research. The terms used to define thepeer groups can be conceived in many different ways and can infer different meanings. I define peergroups in high school as: students involved in school sponsored sports, extracurricular activities andclubs, 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 highschool the feeling of constantly needing to be with someone else forms these types of groups. Theteenagers 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 groupseither by force or choice.
