The references dont have to be from devry database and you can completely make up what has been done

it is eventually going to be this requirement in the future:

Suggested steps for carrying out an ethnographic project are as follows:

  1. Prepare yourself by reading the relevant scholarly literature. Discover what other researchers have to say about the topic you are researching.
  2. Decide what field research role you will play. Will you be a complete observer? That is, will you gain access to the department and watch what goes on? Will you participate as a worker in the department while you observe what is going on? Will you be both an observer and a participant, watching and interviewing department employees?
  3. Review the research ethics of conducting field research. Information is available in the textbook and you are encouraged to seek out research ethics for this purpose, as well, via Web research.
  4. Enter the research area and establish relations with the people you will be studying.
  5. Watch, listen, and collect data.
  6. Begin to analyze the data, generate a description of what the department is doing, and develop working hypotheses.
  7. Continue your field research, conducting focused interviews with relevant individuals.
  8. Disengage and leave the department.
  9. Complete your analysis and write your report.

Additional Guidelines for the final paper:

  • Papers must be between 6 to 8 pages in length (this would be roughly 1 page per area included in the report), 10 point font, double-spaced. Include a cover page, table of contents, introduction, body of the report, summary or conclusion, and works cited.
  • Even though this is not a scientific-type writing assignment, and is mostly creative in nature, references are still very important. At least five authoritative, outside references are required (anonymous authors or web pages are not acceptable). These should be listed on the last page titled “Works Cited.”
  • Appropriate citations are required.
  • All DeVry University policies are in effect including the plagiarism policy.
  • Papers are due during Week 7 of this course.
  • Any questions about this paper may be discussed in the weekly Q A Discussion topic.
  • This paper is worth 125 total points and will be graded on quality of research topic, quality of paper information, use of citations, grammar, and sentence structure.
