The goal of this assignment is to get you familiar with research designs and to find one with you feel most closely aligned.
In Module 2, you learned about five research designs: Ethnography, Narrative, Phenomenological, Grounded Theory, and Case Study. However, most researchers include one more design—Action Research. Many of you may have heard of Action Research. Action Research is often used by teachers to determine if a lesson is successful. I am not requiring that you read the following chapter, but it might be helpful for this assignment. The chapter also includes information about Action Research. This link will take you to Chapter 10 Qualitative Research Designs: chapter 10 qualitative research designs.pdf
Your assignment for this week is to complete the following:
Find information and read about each of the 6 research designs: Ethnography, Narrative, Phenomenological, Grounded Theory, Case Study, Action Research.
Complete the following information for each research design. This means you will have six of these.
Research Design Name:
Researchers Associated with the Research Design:
Paragraph or Two About the Research Design:
Now that you have more information about each research design, decide which one most closely aligns with your idea about the data you would like to collect for your project. Find two peer reviewed research journal articles in which the research design you have chosen are used. These papers may or may not reflect your topic. The idea here is that you become more familiar with a research design that you believe best fits your work. Just because a research article does not fit your research does not mean you cannot use it in your literature review, theoretical framework, or methodology. I cite Creswell, Rogoff, and Lincoln and Guba all the time, but I do not have the same research interests as them. I cite them for their theoretical work and their research designs. You have to learn about the people who were the pioneers in your research design so that when you speak about and write about your research you have a foundation that explains from where you get your beliefs. Write one page that elaborates on the research design of your choice. You should write this in a way that incorporates the two research articles you found and also describes why this research design fits with your ideas about the research you will complete. You MUST use APA. These are not your thoughts so you must use APA to reference where you are getting your information. The only writings you do not have to reference are your thoughts.
