Emily Blum P313 Media Log Veronica Mars ; “Welcome Wagon” (October 3. 2006) It is the first day of the main character’s freshman year, and in her first class, the professor gives  an activity that includes interviewing and discussing with classmates to solve the problem; and Veronica  uses her computer and finds the solution online in a matter of minutes. Aside from cheating the system and side-tracking the purpose of the activity, she also does not  associate with any of her fellow classmates. We have discussed that socialization has a major impact on  adolescence, and this could be encouraging for students to keep to themselves. One Tree Hill ; “Good New For People Who Love Bad News” (October 11, 2006) Another high school after party involving alcohol, which has become common in today’s media.  They even have multiple characters obviously too intoxicated to drive home, and then others, who also  should not be driving, getting behind the wheel. It shows that alcohol’s affects can impact your judgment  and shows how this can affect your actions. This encourages adolescents of many different actions, some good and some not so well. It tells  them that drinking at this age is acceptable; which it is not, there’s a reason why it’s illegal, and it does  affect their brain in a long-term sense because they start at such a young age. And it shows some  characters driving after they have been drinking, which is one of the most dangerous things you could do.  Viewers hold main characters in the media at high standards, and if they see someone that they look up  to, doing something that isn’t a smart decision, it is very likely that they will overlook the sense of the  decision and follow in Hollywood’s path. One Tree Hill ; “Good News For People Who Love Bad News” (October 11, 2006) In this episode, intimacy and sexuality are both addressed in large ways. One instance, a main  character [who was married her junior year] comes out with the fact that she is pregnant. Not that there is anything ‘wrong’ with teenage pregnancy [debate of differing opinions], but it is  fact that a pregnancy during a student’s adolescence would greatly impact their maturation speed and  impact their future. The idea of two adolescents being married before their senior year of high school  even, is extremely odd and does not say much about society, but again encourages early participation of  intimacy, and pregnancy at such an age implies intimacy at this age too. All of this would speed up the

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
