Abraham Dweck 9/29/07 Dr. Olaoye PSYC 105 Effects of TV Violence In Children My experiment is the effects of TV violence in children. First, I would randomly choose 2 groups of kids from randomly chosen people. One would watch simple shows, i.e. the news, comedies and sports (w/o violence). The other group, the experimental group, would watch shows with a lot of violence, i.e. scary movies or shows with a lot of killing and blood. The variables are as follows; IV – TV violence effect, DV – The Children. The extraneous that could affect this study are the background of the kids that could effect the reaction of the reaction of the kids to the violence in this study.

Unformatted text preview: this study, because now I can study the other group and since they weren’t exposed to any violence. I could see if there are any changes in their violence or attitude.

This would have a big effect because if they were then they may like the violence and it would not have any effect on them. This research would be a good way to measure if TV violence leads to violence in the streets, behavior problems or even phobias. It could stop some street violence if the TV networks don’t put violence on networks that are mostly watched by children. Less exposure to the problem could lead to less violence that the kids would do themselves....

    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.
