Journal 2.2 | Research Questions Instructions & Expectations Anthropologists typically ask “how” and “why” questions. These are open-ended questions that explore processes, relationships, and meaning. They generally don’t ask closed questions, such as yes/no questions or questions related to quantities (e.g. “how many”). Remember: Your research questions need to be answerable within the time frame of the project. Choose a research question related to gender that will be interesting for you to explore. Choose a context for your research where you can engage as an active participant. Based on the work you did in discussion section, write your two possible research questions here. Your TA will review these and advise you which one(s) likely to be successful for your research. You will receive feedback on Canvas. In addition, for each question you need to also give a short description of the activity you will be participating in during your observation, and the location where that activity takes place. ( e.g. "For my participant observation I will lift weights at the Natatorium gym on the UW campus.") Read your TA’s feedback on Canvas in order to proceed with the project. DUE DATE: This assignment needs to be completed by 11:59pm the day AFTER your Discussion Section in Week 5 (e.g. if your discussion section meets on Monday, your Research Questions are due by 11:59pm on Tuesday).
