Question Description

THIS IS AN INFORMAL RESEARCH PROJECT WHERE YOU WILL BE GATHERING THE DATA BY USING THE INTERVIEW QUESTIONNAIRE PROVIDED AND THEN WRITING UP AN ANALYSIS OF YOUR FINDINGS BY INTEGRATING AND APPLYING WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED IN CLASS THROUGHOUT THE COURSE. THIS IS THE FINAL EXAMINATION OF THE COURSE.

Therefore, this is a way for you to demonstrate how much you have learned and your ability to connect course material to real-life situations. This is the entire objective of this final project--show me how much you have learned!

PLEASE NOTE: who you choose to interview must be in their current dynamic (e.g., parenthood, divorce, cohabitation) for at least a year to provide a better perspective and cannot be related to you. Also, you CANNOT be related to the individual OR in a romantic relationship with your interviewee. This is to avoid bias and to increase the potential for honest answers.

Also, the textbook is the only reference needed. This paper is ALL about demonstrating your ability to utilize and apply what you have learned this semester to a real-life experience. Thus, the COURSE APPLICATION WITHIN THE ANALYSIS IS CRITICAL!

Your paper should be filled with comparisons and connections to the textbook following proper APA format (authors, year, and page number).

Providing a handful of references (e.g., 3-5 citations) will NOT be satisfactory.

You should be constantly comparing your interviewee's responses to what we have learned: how they align OR differ/do not relate. Remember this is an analysis; not only a restating of your interview notes. This is the most consistent error I find students make on this paper.
