(part 1) Short Essay: Developing a Research Plan Respond to the hypothetical problem using correct basic writing skills in 250-400 words. Your chemistry professor wants you to write a research paper that examines the impact of fracking (using chemicals to pull natural gas from the earth) on a local farming community. The paper, your professor says, must consider the “human factor” as well as the chemical and biological one. What qualitative research method or methods will you use? (surveys, interviews, etc).
