Reflection on I-Search

November 24, 2013

Kendra Brandenstein's insight:

On my I-search, I talked alot about phobias in general, and then went more specific into mine. Phobias can lead to anxiety and panic attacks. These can either be mild or severe. I found that there are many famous people that have phobias. Some of them influence their jobs. I have found a lot of interesting information on this, and it is making me more interested in this topic altogether. I am on page six, so I am coming along. In this, I included different treatment ideas and how to coupe with it. It is a lifestyle and could be very hard to fix. I also, included my story and it gives the readers insight into my life and how my phobia started.

I-Search Presentation

November 24, 2013

Kendra Brandenstein's insight:

For my presentation, I think I am going to try that new Scroll Kit option. I played around on it and it seems fun and different. In my presentation, I first want to start out telling my story. I then want to talk about phobias in general. Then, I want to show them famous and successful people that suffer from various phobias. I think I could show graphs or something with the statistics I have reseached. That might be useful and help people realize that it is more common than one might think. I am still thinking about it and plan on working on it alot at home.
