THIS IS THE TOPIC I DECIDED TO WRITE ABOUT:

Â· I have decided to write my research on should spots figures or celebrities be considered role models? My agreement will be that yes, most spots athletes and most celebrities should be considered as role models. To support my facts I will have evidence on who are the best role models to be considered and why other celebrities should not be looked at as role models. We have to understand that when we turn on the TV anything can be a role model if it is promoting growth, and positivity.
Â· One of my resources that I will use will be from Ashford Universityâ€™s library learning center Celebrities are role models for children… for good and bad (Belfast Telegraph (Belfast, Northern Ireland). July 1, 2014, 24) I will also explain what is the true meaning of a role model whither you are a celebrity, sports figure, or an everyday normal 9-5 working person. We also have to consider that children can also be role models for adults as well. I will consider that the role model that the mass media considers Beyonce Knowles as a role model.
Â· I will also use Ashford University and other sources to support my research paper. By: Read, Barbara. Gender & Education. Jan2011, Vol. 23 Issue 1, p1-13. 13p. ROLE models; FEMININITY; SCHOOL children; CELEBRITIES; KNOWLES, Beyonce, 1981-; SPEARS, Britney, 1981-
