Domestic Extremist Groups

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

III. Method and Research Strategy (1-2 pages): This section provides the reader with a description of your strategy to conduct research for this paper. It identifies your variables and how you operationalized your research approach. It describes the data you found and how you analyzed it for your Analysis and Findings. This section describes any limitations you discovered about your strategy and how you overcame them. Given the length of the class, this section usually identifies the independent and dependent variables and describes how the researcher plans to analyze them to arrive at reasonable findings. Dependent variables are those conditions that are potentially impacted by independent variables. I have described the method you will be using: ethnographic case study. I have partially described what this method involves in the introduction to this assignment. It is up to you to research the rest of it and to find out more about this method. Hint: A key part of what you will be doing is triangulating your findings from your sources.

IV. Analysis and Findings (3-4 pages): This section provides the results of your research and the analytical arguments the paper makes as a result of an analysis of the variables, which in this study is the information and evaluation you found on both your extremist groups. In a quantitative project, this section would provide the results of the data collection and an analysis of what it illustrates in empirical terms. However, this research will be qualitative. This section should also provide the evidence that addresses your research study question(s) and fulfills the purpose of the research. As information is collected, researchers strive to make sense of their data. Generally, researchers interpret their data in one of two ways: holistically or through coding. Holistic analysis does not attempt to break the evidence into parts, but rather to draw conclusions based on the text as a whole. For example, researchers make inferences from entire sections of their study’s protocols, rather than searching through the transcripts to look for isolated characteristics. However, composition researchers commonly interpret their data by coding, that is by systematically searching data to identify and/or categorize specific observable actions or characteristics. These observable actions then become the key variables in the study. There are seven analytic frameworks for the organization and presentation of data:

The role of participants.
The network analysis of formal and informal exchanges among groups.
Ritual and symbolism.
Critical incidents that challenge or reinforce fundamental beliefs, practices, and values.

There are two purposes of these frameworks: to look for patterns among the data and to look for patterns that give meaning to the case study. Given your use of ethnography, your work will lean more toward the use of holistic interpretation. Ask yourself, between these two groups: what are the similarities, what are the differences? Why? What makes them extreme? I think you get the idea.

V. Conclusions (2 -3 pages): This section will contain the concluding analytical arguments based on what the research has revealed to answer the research study question(s). Like any conclusion, it should provide a synopsis of the project, the strategy, and the results and what they add to the body of knowledge. This section should also offer suggestions for avenues of future research for other scholars, as all knowledge is evolutionary.

VI. References: This section will contain all references, cited in APA format, properly indented, and alphabetically arranged. Your paper must contain a minimum of 6 reference sources with at least 2 of them being peer-reviewed journals. Entitle this section as “References” following the parenthetical and reference citation format style established in the American Psychological Association (APA) 6th Edition. Guidance on using APA parameters are available under the course “Resources” tab.. You should be compiling sources and adding to them as you go along throughout the semester. They should be error free!!!
