Instructions for Course Assignment
Analyzing Interviews with Parents to Children/Adolescents on the Topic of Challenges,
Opportunities, and Coping with Children’s/Adolescents’ Exposure to and Use of Media
During the Coronavirus Crisis
The goal of this assignment is for students to examine the challenges and new opportunities which
parents of children/adolescents faced during the Coronavirus crisis and the ways in which parents
coped with these challenges and opportunities. The goal of the assignment is to analyze the parents’
reports based on existing knowledge about child/adolescent development, the parent-child
relationship, and parental mediation of media exposure, as taught in the course.
The assignment should be written and submitted in groups of no more than 3 students. *
Students will interview 2 parents ** from different families (that is, one parent from each family) to
children/ adolescents between the ages of birth to 19 years of age (each parent should refer in the
interview to one of their children, even if there are more children in the household, in order to focus
the discussion). In the interview, ask the parents about their children’s exposure to media during the
Coronavirus crisis. For example, ask the parents if there were differences between the Coronavirus
days and their child’s previous routine in terms of exposure to and use of media as well as in terms
of their own treatment of these behaviors. Also, for example, ask what were the challenges they
faced in this context during this time? Do they feel that there were also new (positive) opportunities
that began during the Coronavirus crisis in terms of their children’s exposure to and use of media?
Were the challenges and opportunities related to the media themselves? The content? The time of
exposure? The duration of exposure? The composition of participants in the exposure (e.g.,
siblings)? Did they face social challenges? Cognitive challenges? Emotional challenges? Did family
conflicts arise in this context during the crisis? It is important to ask the interviewees how they
coped with the challenges and whether they feel that they were successful. If not, why not? What
did they learn from this period? Are there any lessons that they would be happy to apply in the
future, even after the crisis? Etc. Etc.
In the paper, students should analyze the content of the interviews according to themes that will
emerge from them and present a comprehensive picture about the challenges, opportunities, and
coping of parents with their children’s media exposure and use during the Coronavirus crisis.
Present complete and clear arguments based on the interviews and support your conclusions with
quotes and examples from the interviews. You can also compare the interviews and address
similarities in and differences between the different parents based on relevant dimensions. *** The
analysis should be clearly linked to the course materials (lectures and reading materials) and reflect
an understanding of child/adolescent development and their relationship with media and their
content, uses, and effects.
In addition, students need to locate one article that is related to the topic of parental media
mediation or the parent-child relationship in the context of media, and integrate it into the paper.
The article must be academic, empirical or theoretical, credible, contemporary, and relevant. The
article’s integration into the paper can be minimal but it must be logical and clear as it relates to the
paper and should be done following the rules of using external sources in academia according to the
APA (including noting the source in the text and writing it in a reference list).
The paper should not exceed 4 pages (excluding the reference list and an appendix, if needed, in
which information is provided about the interviewees, both of which are not included in the page
count). The paper should be typed using Times New Roman 12 point font, double spaced, and with
2 cm margins on all sides. The paper must be original for this course and adhere to the writing
guidelines of the Sammy Ofer School of Communications and the American Psychological
Association (APA). Attach a reference list to the paper detailing all the external sources used in the
assignment. The paper’s grade will constitute 20% of the final course grade.
The paper (one copy per group) must be submitted no later than 23:55 on Sunday, June 14, 2017 on
the course website. Late submissions will not be graded.
* Group composition should be determined by the students and at their exclusive responsibility.
Each group will submit one paper and receive one grade but all group members are considered fully
responsible for the paper. Students who prefer this, can write and submit the paper alone or in a pair
(accommodations according to the group’s size are listed herein).
** Students who choose to write the paper alone can conduct only one interview. Students who
work in a pair or triad will interview two parents, one from each different family.
*** A comparison between the two parents is only relevant in papers in which more than one
interview was conducted and analyzed.
