For this assignment, you will create an annotated bibliography with 5 sources. (You will include a total of 10 in your final paper.) This should focus on the topic you're interested in doing your "extended" interviews and research on. Then.... PROBLEM STATEMENT: WHAT SPECIFICALLY WILL YOU STUDY, AND WHY ARE YOU DOING IT? This brief introductory statement identifies your research topic, and situates it within a larger problem. LITERATURE REVIEW: This section is a succinct overview of the studies you have read regarding this topic. Keep these questions in mind as you write: WHAT HAVE OTHER STUDIED AND REPORTED RELATED TO THIS TOPIC? WHAT ISSUES EMERGE IN THEIR RESEARCH? RESEARCH FOCUS and QUESTIONS: Here’s where you show that your “mastering” of this literature leads you to want to research more. What exactly will you do based on these gaps, and what questions are you trying to answer? METHODOLOGY: Here you will essentially use information you provide in the IRB, regarding: WHO? Ages? Sexes? #? Other relevant data. Also, how will you recruit them? WHERE? WHEN? And for how long? HOW? Participant observation and ???? ANALYSIS: This is where you will explain how you will get answers to the question you’ve identified above. Giving thought to this now will help you hone your interview schedule and plans for observations. For example, you might want to restate the themes you’re interested in, with corresponding questions in your interview schedule. (I do the latter because I’m anal. You don’t have to do this but it is one way to really think about the relationship between the information you need and the information you will collect). SIGNIFICANCE/CONTRIBUTIONS OF RESEARCH: A brief statement about what you expect your research will contribute to anthropological knowledge, social policy, etc. WHY should this research be done? Think about your research questions in light of the literature you’ve reviewed that helped shape your research focus.
