Research Paper

8th Grade

Revised Version

Adolescent violence is partly attributable to escalating sequences of events that culminate in outcomes unintended by the participants. This study of violent incidents among middle and high schools students focused not only on the types and frequency of these incidents but also on their dynamics-the locations, the "opening moves," the relationship between disputants, the goals and justifications of the aggressor, the role of the third parties, and other factors. I intend to describe the dangers and effects of school violence.

The causes of school violence are that psychiatrists give medication to children and teens, the role of the media, such as movies, TV broadcasts, music, and video and computer games. There are other situations which causes school violence that is in your family because of divorce, separation, or sent to a foster home, the environment you live in, being involved in gangs, doing drugs, drinking alcohol, being consistently bullied, and having an easy access to any kind of weapon.

School violence is a serious matter in our US society today. It to me is serious and dangerous at the same time, but the problem that we have which some of us can't seem to realize is that we are the problem; we are the ones who cause it. There are many of people in this country who are not involved in it; they should be the ones to speak out against it and try to stop it. The problem with that is some people don't want to speak out because they don't want to be scared of what might be the result of it all, but we should still speak out. Many parents send their child or children to school to learn; they do not want to get a phone call saying that your child was brutally beaten or killed to death by his/her classmates.


So, the National Youth Violence Prevention Center made a survey on how serious it is in schools.

1. 7% of students carry a weapon or weapons to school

2. 8% of students have been threatened or injured with a weapon on school grounds.

3. 14% of students have been involved in fights on school grounds.

4. 5% of students have missed at least one day of school because they are scared to travel to and from school

5. About 10% of students in 6th grade have been bullied compared to about 5% of students in 8th and 9th grades and about 2% of students in 10th-12th grades.

In my opinion, I think that if schools had 1% of violence, it would still be too much because the students are there to learn not to fight.

The reason why students bring guns to school is because they are being bullied or teased, threatened, and afraid. They bring them to protect themselves from any type of bullying.

The dangets and effects of school violence are death, imprisonment, the break of friendship, the break of family, and the break of trust.

I intend to describe what makes school violence a real global issue and the results in America, today.

1. What are the dangers?

2. What are the effects?

3. What are the causes?

4. How serious of a problem?

5. Why do students that are involved bring guns to school?

6. What is?

So, the conclusion of my research paper and the restatement of my thesis statement is that the dangers and the effects of school violence are caused by middle and high school students who are not focused on the way to solve the problem, but they are ready to jump in to a fight, which they think solves the problem. But, now, we can be the ones the stop this very serious matter in our schools today; we can be the on to STOP THE VIOLENCE!
