"F912 A03 REBECCA MARKED"
A03 Rebecca Tomlin In this section of my course I and my fellow pupils will be separated into groups and each group will be carrying out a campaign. Before I start my presentation I need to think about the research behind it. There are two types of research primary and secondary. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primary_research primary research is this. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secondary_research primary research is this. Primary data is collected for a particular purpose and is new information. This is conducted using some means of questioning usually via a survey interviews Observation Observation meaning the witness testimony which is carried out by the teacher, on this will be a bunch of questions asking how well we did, how well we communicated, if we interacted well with the children, what skills we had an so on. The reason for this is because it will help us assess ourselves and think about if we could have improved the campaign if possible and things we could have changed. It is typically more time-consuming and expensive to collect than secondary data, and is often the second stage in a research project, following secondary research. My primary data is going to be when I give out the Pre-questionnaires and post questionnaires because these will lead on the give out the secondary data. The reason for using these is because it is an easy and a quick task to do, with accurate results if put as anonymous. Secondary research is using all the primary data and analysing it, so when I get the results for the questionnaires I am going to comprehensively write about them and find more out about young people and smoking today within the community. A03 Rebecca Tomlin Smoking campaign The aim of our smoking campaign is to educate all different years about smoking and the effects on health. Prevent people from starting to smoke and Persuade smokers to give up. We are using form groups because there is a range of ages and religions. Our aim is persuade people either not to start smoking or to stop. Encourage a healthy lifestyle so that people will see that smoking is a bad habit. Give information about the affects of smoking and where they can get help from. Fear approach shocking people into giving up or refusing to start with pictures and information about the horrible things that can happen to you if you smoke. How will we do this? - Posters and leaflets Objectives: 6 posters should be made in bright colours to promote no smoking. A power point should be produced on smoking and the effects. Doctors view on smoking and the effects, get an interview if possible Make sure questionnaires are produced Also activity sheets e.g. puzzles, crosswords 5 main things we need to achieve – Measurable, Clear, Achievable, Relevant and Timed. Time to take: A day to make posters and make copies of them. A day to make the PowerPoint and animation should be added to make the PowerPoint more interesting. Questionnaires will take two – three days to make, because we all need to meet up to put our inputs into it. A03 Rebecca Tomlin Planning of Campaign My target audience My target audience is all years. I think that this is a good idea because it helps all ages and not just a specific age, its better to do all years because peer pressure is a big aspect of life and people can be very easy influenced. Peer pressure is when Peers influence your life, even if you don't realize it, just by spending time with you. You learn from them, and they learn from you. It's only human nature to listen to and learn from other people in your age group. Peers can have a positive influence on each other. Maybe another student in your science class taught you an easy way to remember the planets in the solar system, or someone on the football team taught you a cool trick with the ball. You might admire a friend who is always a good sport and try to be more like him or her. Maybe you got others excited about your new favorite book, and now everyone's reading it. These are examples of how peers positively influence each other every day. Sometimes peers influence each other in negative ways. For example, a few kids in school might try to get you to skip class with them, your football friend might try to convince you to be mean to another player and never pass him the ball, or a kid in the neighborhood might want you to shoplift with him. All of these things influence a child’s life and how they make decisions so for e.g. if people in his/hers peer group smoking and they say “have a fag” they may feel obliged to do it just to fit in. Within my form group there are a mixture of cultures and races, so therefore when I’m designing posters, leaflets and so on I must make sure I cater for every race and culture by putting translations. This then gave me the idea of the poster which features 6 different languages of “smoking kills”. We need to use bright colours and interesting pictures, this then brings attention to the information and then the children will want to read on further. A03 Rebecca Tomlin Request for permission First of all we needed to ask Miss Birch from my form (L1) if we are able to present our campaign. Because the presentation is time consuming and we need to know if using her own time is ok. So I wrote a letter up from the three of us asking for permission to allow my form to participate and listen to our smoking presentation. Miss birch agreed to it straight away and thought it was a great idea to help the children understand about the effects and dangers of smoking. A03 Rebecca Tomlin Posters We will make 6 posters which will have “smoking kills” in 6 different languages. This is the poster, brightly coloured, attractive and people will look at it twice. Using 6 different languages it allows us to not discriminate towards different cultures. When doing the presentation these posters are going to be stuck on the walls around my form room so as soon as they come in that will be the first thing they spot because its bright and in your face. I will make this poster on a simple word document using different fonts and colours to make it look attractive. I used different colours and fonts to make the poster stand out. A picture which represents exactly what the campaign is about. A03 Rebecca Tomlin PowerPoint Presentation I have also put together a PowerPoint of pictures linked with smoking; the first slide is about the hazards of smoking, the second slide is the effects of smoking, the third slide was a before and after picture of smoking effecting the lungs and the last slide is information about the different smoking bans. With using PowerPoint I hope that the children will not get bored and loose interest, I hope they will pay attention because there are only 4 slides and it is bright, quick and enough information but not too much. Legislation Hazards Effects Pictures Crossword Then I found a crossword on the internet about smoking and I printed off 20 copies for each person to do as a starter quiz, after the presentation I went through the answers with the children and we compared answers. This gives them to chance to show how much they actually do know about smoking and if they didn’t know a lot at the start they might do at the end of the presentation. A03 Rebecca Tomlin NHS I also sent off for packs of kits from the NHS, which included how to quit smoking packs, about smoking, nicotine patches and so fourth. All this I will use in my presentation, these are needed to help my form be aware of all the risks and not just coming from me and my colleagues but from the national health service., hopefully these leaflets, DVD’s and posters will help people to think about the effects and risks of smoking. All leaflets are too be handed out and given to the pupils to look at information and to help them understand about smoking, the effects, how to stop, how to stand up for your rights. The leaflets are more informative than the posters; you can take them away with you and read over and over again. A03 Rebecca Tomlin What I will do within the presentation Now that I have everything planned, posters, leaflets, handouts done I am ready to present my campaign. Myself and my other peers have chosen to do it on a Monday morning in form, we chose this because everyones fresh on a Monday they have had a break at the weekend and should be ready to listen and learn. Before the children arrive im going to stick the posters up all around the form room and im going to lay the crossword on every childs seat. The leaflets are going to be spread around equally on each table. As the children arrive I will ask them to complete the crossword to the best of their ability and also I will make a pre questionnaire and a post questionnaire. The reason for a pre and post questionnaire is at the beginning they can take the pre one and see how much they acctually know about smoking and then at the end take the post one to see how much they have learn during that short space of time. A03 Rebecca Tomlin Here are two screen shots of my pre-questionnaire. Within this I have asked questions to smokers and none smokers, trying to find out basic facts of why they smoke, how much they smoke and so on. Do young people really know the risks of smoking? My aim is to make the younger generation aware of what could happen if you smoke and to stop it whilst they are young enough too. The children will complete the pre questionnaire at the start. Then I will show them the PowerPoint presentation, getting the children involved by reading out the different slides, letting them learn by working together. Then I will let the children take a look at the different posters, NHS leaflets I also got sent through. I also have inhalers, patches and nicotine gum sent through, I will say to the children that if they do smoke and they want to quit they can come to one of us privately and we will help them by giving them advice. Telephone numbers, websites and so on to help them quit. If they do not feel the can tell us if they smoke then in the NHS packs are private ways that they can talk to somebody professionally. A03 Rebecca Tomlin A03 Rebecca Tomlin Once we have given out all the relevant information I will then hand out the post questionnaire, this is a questionnaire to see how much they have actually learnt and if now they understand the risks of smoking. By doing this I can see if the presentation had a positive impact on the children and if it was worthwhile. I predict that the children will learn something from the presentation because when I was researching smoking there was things that I didn’t know, which now I have found out. It’s easy to say smoking kills, but there is much more to smoking than people think. I hope that the children take a long learnt lesson from our presentation and it will prevent them from smoking and maybe even stop them from smoking if they do already.
