Explain why the research method you selected is appropriate for answering your research question.

Research Methods

For this assignment, you will create a research question, select an appropriate research method to answer that question, and discuss the appropriateness of the type of research you selected. Your title will be a research question that you are interested in investigating. You will not actually conduct this research for the assignment though. You are also expected to explore the different types of research methods.

Here is an example: Research Methods: Qualitative and Quantitative. Select a research method that is appropriate to use to answer your question. Explain the research method that you have selected.

· What steps are involved?

· Cite the information from sourced material. (You may need additional sources to get a complete idea of the research method you chose). Because you are using outside information to create this paragraph, there will be in-text citations in APA format.

· In addition, briefly discuss how you would use that research method to answer your question (assume you had access to whatever you needed). Remember Grantham has a policy that no more than 20% of a paper can be sourced material.

· Explain why the research method you selected is appropriate for answering your research question. What kind of data does it generate? How would that data answer your question?

In your concluding paragraph, explain the weaknesses, limitations, and bias that you would need to be aware of if you were to use that research method to answer your question.

Character Analysis Mind Map with Mindomo of Beowulf and the Epic of Gilgamesh.

Create a visual map comparing two (2) of the characters from different pieces of literature read during the course. The purpose of this character analysis is to 1) encourage the reading, interpretation, and critical analysis of major works of world literature, and 2) demonstrate a proficiency in reading and analyzing literature.

The intent of a character analysis is to have you look beyond the obvious information provided by the author and make observations of a character’s behavior, motivation and role in the story. Mind mapping is a simple technique for drawing information in diagrams, instead of writing it in sentences. You will be creating this visual depiction of these characters using Mindomo which is an online mind mapping tool used to create, view and share mind maps in your Internet browser. If you have not done so by now, you need to create a free online account at http://www.mindomo.com/.

Task in Detail:

You will select two (2) different characters from two different pieces of literature that you have read this term. You will be creating a mind map that is a side-by-side comparison of the characters.

There are a few required elements in your mind map:

1. Name and image of each character with a note that includes information the author provides regarding the character’s physical appearance and a couple of sentences about who they are in the story in your own words.

2. Traits: A list of 3-5 personality traits, such as bitter, angry, selfish, kindhearted, weak, stubborn or heroic, for each character with a note that includes a quote that demonstrates that trait from the work.

What is the relevance of existentialism (Sartre and Nietzsche) to the philosophy of well-being?

What is the relevance of existentialism (Sartre and Nietzsche) to the philosophy of well-being? Your paper’s thesis will establish the relevance by critically engaging with one of the theories of well-being we’ve studied (hedonism, Aristotle’s theory, or desire theory). The thesis might have this form:  This aspect of existentialism calls into question that feature of desire theory. A sample thesis (you may write about this, if you like): “The existentialist notion of self-creation calls into doubt the desire-theorist’s straight-forward focus on the satisfaction of desires as a way of increasing well-being.” Don’t write about marginal issues; make sure that what you explore is important in each theory. (if you write about Aristotle, your paper should be on the long side of the word count, because you’ll have to explain some central aspects of his theory, which are difficult to state briefly).

At least 2/3 of your paper should be devoted to existentialism.

The target reader has not read any of these texts, so you’ll have to provide whatever background is necessary. Do not use quotations; use

straightforward language

NOTE

The essay must be between 5 pages). Include a standard heading: writer’s name, assignment name and essay title (e.g., “Midterm Exam: Mapping Plato’s Divided Line onto His Cave Allegory”), department name, course name and number, professor’s name, date submitted, and word count.

For this assignment, do not use quotations. Also, you ought to strive to describe the author’s ideas in your own words; do not rely too much on jargon. Be sure to use very plain language. You ought to strive to breakdown the ideas into the simplest, most straightforward terms possible; this involves thoughtful word-choice and uncomplicated sentence structure (but of course, you don’t want to simplify expression at the expense of accurately representing the details and subtleties of the concepts and arguments).
