My research started off pretty simply, with one guiding question I thought I might have an interest in. My original guiding question for the Inquiry Project was “How Does Television Affect Children and Why Does It Matter?” This guiding question led me to articles on how television affects children, such as Nancy Signorielli’s Children, Television, and Gender Roles: Messages and ImpactThe guiding question drove me to what eventually became this glorious Reader’s Guide on Cartoon Network and Gender Roles.
