For my informative paper I have narrowed it down to a few major topic ideas. The first being the work of Child Life Specialists, which is my major and will hopefully be my future career. Child Life Specialists have the extremely unique job of working solely with hospitalized children and working to make their lives easier during such a hard time. In my paper I would want to be able to see the fine details of their work and everything the job entails and why it is so important to have in a pediatric hospital setting. To expand my knowledge I want to know, what are the major duties of being a Child Life Specialist, how common is it, why are they needed in a hospital, etc. With time if I choose this topic I will come up with more questions to broaden my understanding of the topic. The second topic I have in mind is therapeutic boarding schools. My sister Hannah attended a therapeutic boarding school for her last two years of high school and there is nothing about these schools that don't fascinate me, and I think the amazing things these schools are accomplishing are not very well known. I want to learn: how did these schools get started? How do they help the students? What are the pro's and con's and/or successes and failures? What are the various reasons students end up getting sent there? Lastly, what different types of therapeutic boarding schools are there? My last topic of interest is either the concentration camp from the Holocaust Auschwitz, or the use of eugenics on disabled people in the Holocaust. I am taking a Holocaust literature class this semester and am just so extremely interested in learning more about this point in time and there is a lot of information I feel I personally want to learn more about as well as other people should know. If I did Auschwitz I would want to know: How many people ended up being prisoners at Auschwitz, and of that number how many people died? What are the percentages of prisoners there, (Jewish, Gypsies, Homosexuals etc)? What were there living conditions? What kind of work and duties were they forced to do? Who ran the camp? And probably many more. If I did the eugenics I would ask: How did this get started? How many people were sterilized? How did they force people to do this? Were there any other long term effects other than sterilization?
