For my project two, I will be completing interviews of college students asking them about their connections with the pieces that they read, specifically newspaper articles. I will also be interested in seeing if this differs from novels and also research how college students react to the words of musicians through their music. I feel that these all are one in the same, how other peoples words make us react and feel.
I am taking a research methods class and we have read numerous articles about how to successfully create and execute surveys and interviews. I have re-read these for the purposes of this project, and look forward to executing their recommendations.
One aspect of my project that has required the most research, is where to publish my research. In our group meeting, some informal outlets, such as The Tab, were recommended, but throughout my research I have decided to seek a more formal outlet. I have decided that the opinions section of the Huffington Post and the Michigan Daily are optimal places for my work.
