Sleep Problems in Teens

Sleep Problems in Teens | High school should start at a later time | Scoop.it
Does your teenager have a hard time falling asleep at night or waking up in the morning? Is he or she sleepy during the day? Find out if this behavior is just a normal part of adolescence, or if something else is to blame.
Joe DeSimone's insight:

I found this source very credible because it was reviewed by a medical editor.  I plan to use this article in the rebuttal section of my outline because it explains more in depth why teens cannot fall asleep early and why it isn't fair to say, "they don't get enough sleep because they don't go to bed early enough. It's their fault."

Read about Adolescent Sleep.
Joe DeSimone's insight:

I liked this source because it compared how much sleep an average teenager needs and how much sleep an average teenager actually gets.  It also explained that teenagers have an internal clock shift of about two hours, which explains why they fall asleep later and wake up later, which I can use to support the idea of having school start later.

I liked this page because of the video on it.  The video has many credible people adding their input to the topic, like a pediatrition and many school board members.  I plan to use the pediatrition's and school board member's opinion to support my topic and use some of the information in my rebuttal

Teens and Sleep

Teens and Sleep | High school should start at a later time | Scoop.it
Sleep is food for the brain. During sleep, important body functions and brain activity occur. Skipping sleep can be harmful — even deadly, particularly if you are behind the wheel. You can look bad, you may feel moody, and you perform poorly.
Joe DeSimone's insight:

I liked this source because of the facts presented in it.  It also had the consequences resulting from lack of sleep listed which I can use to support my topic because it will ephmasize the importance of sleep.  This combined with the facts that teens do not get enough sleep mostly because of altered sleep schedule and school starting early will help me prove my point.
