University of South Florida Research for Wasteerase Corporation Essay

I’m working on a sociology project and need a sample draft to help me learn.

i will provide the info of my household, etc. for this assignment.

Project 2: Research for WasteErase Corporation

For Project 2 on waste in your household, you told the Board of Directors of Waste-Erase Corporation that you would use the following procedures as a guide for your study. Please respond to each number listed below.

  1. Over a period of 2-3 days, take detailed notes (based on your visual assessment. No need to use gloves. This is just practice.) on all types of waste in your household, the location of the waste, and the amount of waste (You will judge this by the size of the container.). Take notes on which person or groups of people tend to use which waste containers in the household. It is likely that everyone contributes to the waste container in the kitchen, but not in other rooms.
  2. As an initial preparation for data analysis, establish general sets of abstract categories for the observed waste. For example, single use plastics, paper products, cardboard, aluminum, etc. As data collection continues, refine your observations and document your assessment of waste into their appropriate categories.
  3. Take notes on the amount of waste that you observe within each category. You will determine an indicator for measuring the amount of waste and what time of day makes sense to make your observations. It is important for your findings that you assess waste the same time each day. Explain what indicator you will use to measure waste in each waste basket. (You can draw, weigh, or something else.)
  4. After 2-3 days, assess your research notes. “Ask questions” about what you observe in your notes to develop themes and patterns. For example, you may want to note who has garbage containers in their rooms and who doesn’t. How come? What kind of waste do I see in my parents’ or roommate’s room that I don’t see in my room? You can still ask questions about your observations even if you live alone. (Qualitative data analysis is an art and meant to be creative. You are trying to create an idea that no one has thought about before. This is how you advance science. )
  5. Wow, your methodological skills are ready “to take the show on the road” and move on to benefit other sites! You have showed the world the value of social scientists. What can you share with other social science majors about how to sell their research and analytical skills to prospective employers?
  6. Turn in your observation notes, themes and patterns and categories me. Make sure you provide the number of people who share a household and your measurement for “amount of waste,” your categories about types of waste, and themes and patterns that you see in your data. Provide a response for all questions that I asked above.

Grading: Grades will be based on the thoughtfulness and thoroughness of your response to all of the questions that I posted above. I am looking for your ability to think through a research project, alert yourself to possible problems with your data collection, and think about what approach makes sense given your overall research goals. Once you have collected data, I want to see your ability to look across your data, categorize what you have gathered and note a few themes/patterns. I am more than willing to help you in this process during the research process! Unfortunately, I cannot help you once you have turned in the project as the course ends on Friday. You will not have the ability to redo project 2 after the course has ended.
