My name is Ramatu Abdullah, and my project was titled E-mail around the world. Using the informative power of Face Book and Gaia Online I questioned random individulas within my homes state or Texas, as well as those outside of the Texan borders and even outside the U.S borders and asked them five questions regarding either the State of the U.S or their own political views. If you would like to look at the information gathered from my survey feel free to look at the link below.
My name is Cameron Hays, and my project was E-mail around the world. Me and my partner, Spencer Burke, sent out a survey to people in Texas, the rest of the United States, and the rest of the world to find out their opinions about current political issues. This project was especially interesting because the international students, namely those from Singapore, had different views about what government was supposed to be. For example, they believed that the death penalty was only controversial when applied to minor crimes like theft. This is in stark contrast to the death penalty in the United States because it is always controversial. Over all, most people supported Obama and thought he was successful and most agreed that young people don't vote because they simply dont care and aren't paying attention. However, some questions were disagreed on, such as the tensions with regards to the the Arizona shooting and the death penalty. In general, we concluded that people's opionions are subjects are very closely related to where they live and what they have experienced in their lives.
My name is Taeho Kim, and my project was titled E-mail around the world. My partner Morgan, and I questioned people from Texas, outside of Texas, and even outside of United States through e-mail and facebook. We asked their opinion about five government related questions.
My name is Andie Divita, and my project was titled E-mail Around the World. My partner Preston and I surveyed people from Texas, other parts of the U.S., Lebanon, and Wales in order to learn more about the views of others about our federal government. It was cool to see how the opposing views varied from place to place. We found that some of the most controversial issues were those based on abortion and U.S. involvement in Iraq. For the most part, those results were split right down the middle. However, topics such as Obama's success as president were pretty close to unanimous. Almost everyone agreed that although he has made some mistakes and has not been able to fix all problems, he is still making progress and will improve the country in the long-run. Many of the students from overseas did not know why young citizens in America were resistent about voting. This is most likely because they don't have the same opportunities that we do as young Americans. Overall, it was a very interesting and beneficial project to complete. We learned a lot about the different life styles of kids around the world and it helped us to better understand our peers.
