I’m currently writing a book for teenagers about sleep. I am looking for 3-4 schools to take part in some research for me. I have found two and am now looking for one or two more. Could it be yours?
What I’d need from you:
- I’m looking for a balance of state and independent, although I don’t expect results to differ.
- I would need a minimum of 30 students from your school to commit to taking part. Ideally we’d start with more, to allow for a drop-out element.
- Students would need to do this of their own volition – if they felt obliged, this could affect their honesty and commitment
What I’d ask of the students:
- Sleep and wake time and length of tie to get to sleep
- Perceived quality of sleep
- Did they dream much (to their knowledge) and were the dreams positive or negative
- Did their dreams relate to events from their life
- How did they feel next day
- What they did or didn’t do during the 2 hours before bed
