I need a qualitative lab report, more exactly a research proposal. For this you should find five recent news stories on a topic of your choice related to crime. All stories should be on the same topic. Use these news stories as your data to conduct your analysis, selecting one of the qualitative methods discussed in lecture (e.g. Thematic Analysis, Discourse Analysis, etc.) in order to analyse your data. In your report, make sure that you clearly identify which method you have selected.
Regardless of whether you will be analysing an interview transcript (A) or media sources (B), your report must contain the following sections:
• Reference list
• Appendices (including copies of news reports used OR interview schedule, transcript, participant information sheet, consent form, and debrief sheet).
Note that if you are analysing media data (Option B) then you will not be conducting an interview for this assignment, but will be instead using news data in place of an interview transcript. Therefore, please disregard all references to interviews and interview transcripts in the summative 2 guidance documents, including references to participant information sheets, consent forms, debriefs, etc. You will not need to include these elements if you are using media sources.
