Methodological congruence ensures that the researcher took the appropriate measures to accurately record and represent the data, both procedurally and ethically. It follows the data itself to ensure that the readers examining the data will reach the same or similar conclusions as the research team. Analytical preciseness deals with the process of translating data. It must go through several processes of decision and interpretation, and analytical precision evaluates logical progression of the data transformation. Theoretical correctness is a meta-evaluation of the schema of the study.
Narrative research theory is the study of how human beings experience the world, and narrative researchers compile these stories via in-depth interviews and write narratives about the experience (Gudmundsdottir, 2001). The data collected in narrative research can be qualitative, quantitative, or both. In my research proposal I mentioned in the methodology section that my study will be mostly qualitative in nature but in some cases there will be some quantitative data. I also mentioned that my research will be investigating the Hammonds Farm area, with the intention of investigating the impact of relocations on the livelihoods of beneficiaries that were relocated from Ocean-Drive to Hammonds Farm. Since the study I will be doing involves a case study, the narrative research theory seems the most logical direction as it corresponds with the purpose of my study.
There are probably as many definitions of critical thinking as there are critical thinkers. One of the requirements for effective critical thinking is the ability to develop useful and practical definitions of key concepts, in light of the perspectives of others and one’s own intellectual experiences. For our purposes here, let’s consider critical thinking to be the intellectual process of defining clear and manageable problems; acquiring unbiased, reliable, and valid information bearing on the problems; manipulating that information in creative and appropriate ways in order to develop new and different perspectives on the situation; and developing reasonable and practical action plans based on these analyses. Underlying all these activities
All this features enable the practitioner to get enough information from the community and work together with the community member from the planning to implementation phase to achieve the intended results (Chambers, Robert., 1990). Despite Participatory Rural Appraisal being very famous and useful by both governmental and Non Governmental actors there are a lot of limitations that face Participatory Rural Appraisal in its practice. This paper shall address only a few limitations below that are likely to be faced by practitioners while using Participatory Rural Appraisal as a model for addressing challenging issues in the community (Hilary and Jannice, 1994). 1. The community may have false expectations when Participatory Rural Appraisal is done especially when then know there will be financial support.
This essay examines ethnographic issues, questions the ethics of ethnographic research on marginal and island communities. My aim is to quantify the way in which my own research should be carried out from an ethical, sociological and political standpoint. I will be using existing methodologies, primary research and I will use a range of secondary document sources, both formal and informal as well as personal records to illuminate my ethnography of Lord Howe Island (e.g. official documents, documentaries, videos, newspaper and journal articles, government reports, and life histories). This paper attempts to build on Ellis’s (2004) and Anderson (2006) approach to autoethnography ‘that draws upon postmodern sensibilities and whose advocates
The initial step is to identify this tradition which is again "self-identification" of the tales with respect to the country they are being collected While talking about identification, the article “Objects of Ethnography" by Barbara Krishenblatt-Gimblett, has to be mentioned. It talks about the circumstances and surroundings being taken into consideration by the ethnographers before concluding about the context or story related to the object regarding its identity with respect to the site it has been found. "In considering the problem of the ethnographic object, it is useful to distinguish in situ from in context, a pair of terms that calls into question the nature of the whole, the burden of interpretations, and the location of meaning." (Kirshenblatt-Gimblett 388). This line clearly says that the meaning of the objects is derived from the fragments of the object and from the place from where it has been acquired.
These four methods are used in combination to assess the Sunset community such as collecting information from various government websites, and articles which contain statistics that has quantitative and qualitative data (Yui, 2016). Community assessment is important when determining which social determinants of health are affected in a specific community. In the following paragraph, the writer will explore the community-as-partner model by defining key terms and connecting the model with the community nursing
He conveyed to readers both the practical and theoretical and ways of approaching theory generation. Additionally, the author tried to bring to light on how sensitizing concepts provide starting point for building analysis of data to generate a grounded theory. As a research method, it’s appropriate for identifying and explaining phenomenon and social processes. The author clearly explains dynamics of theoretical framework in his study. This clearly gives the readers a line of reasoning and basis as to why we should move grounded theory further into postmodernism.
The Aeta women were interviewed regarding their personal health care beliefs and practices. Stage 4: Collecting data from other sources After the observations and interviews made by the researchers, documents that reflected the health care of Aetas in the rural communities were examined. At the same time, the researchers gathered information through documents related to health care among indigenous people. Data Analysis Procedure The analysis in this study involved four phases, namely; (1) The researchers collected, documented, and described the data taken from the informants; (2) The researchers transcribed the data gathered through interview; (3) The researchers identified the significant details and categorized descriptors and components. Repeated descriptions were noted and patterns of beliefs and practices of the Aetas with regards to health care were identified; and (4) Major themes were identified and were compared to the etic views and descriptions of health care.
THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK Note- taking Note-Taking in the Mirror of Literature: Theory and Practice The main bases of the study are cognitive and the meta-cognitive theories. A cognitive theory involves note-taking, key words, and imagery. On the other hand, a meta-cognitive theory involves the self-management, preparation, self-monitoring, self-evaluation, and self-reinforcement. Note-taking requires understanding, selection of information and written processes. Through note-taking, everyone can list down the key points or words and recording while comprehending new information at the same time.
Grant-Davie describes thoroughly the term rhetorical situation and how the development of the definition and its constituents has contributed to the discovery of the motives and responses behind any discourse. The analysis of rhetorical situations could determine the outer or inner influences of the rhetors, the audience, and their particular constraints. Grant Davie supports his claims by using the earlier definitions of scholars and teachers as his foundation. He also addresses his own analysis drawn by life experienced discourses which it also helps the reader understand the causes of rhetorical situations. This is important because it teaches any writer or reader to analyze a situation and think about the options and paths it could lead

According to Conley, Social Scientists have a set of typical approaches that they pursue in investigating any question that may arise. These rules are known as research methods. They are tools utilized to explore, describe, and explain various social phenomenons in a principled approach. The Two research method that I chose that Conley described in this textbook are Historical Methods and Experimental methods. Experimental methods seek to adjust the social scene in a certain manner for a given example of people and after that track what results that change yields; regularly include comparisons to a control group that did not experience such an intercession.
