Preparatory Steps in Writing a Field Research
Transcript of Preparatory Steps in Writing a Field Research
a Field Research Field Research Also known as Field Study
Describes a given condition or occurrence in the natural environment where the said condition or occurrence takes place (Bendazzoli and Escalante 20)
No changes whatsoever are made in the environment (Paler-Calmorin and Calmorin 13) Research problems or questions are answered with data taken from the natural environment, like people, objects or artifacts, also records, oral and written. Writing the field research may be a daunting task. But learning it step by step with ample explanations and illustrations simplifies the process and encourages you to work on and explore new areas of knowledge. 1 2 3 4 5 6 What will be
the research topic? As you choose your topic,
be aware of the following.. Your ability or background
knowledge of the topic. Your interest. Availability of materials. TOPICS TO AVOID: Mere descriptions of processes. Controversial Issues. Very recent topics
like texting. Who will be the respondents? Group/s of people
who will respond
to or answer
your questionnaire. Be specific. If your respondents are students,
indicate their course, year level, and even the section, if needed. If they are teachers, then indicate the college or department they belong to. Where will be the
research venue? This will tell where the respondents
will come from. If the respondents are from school, indicate
the name of the school and the college/department
where the respondents will come from. If you want to involve people outside the school,
TELL WHO THEY ARE. Be sure you involve people who are accessible to you.
Also, avoid too many respondents because of time
constraints. When will the research take place? Indicate the time the research
will start and end. How is the thesis
title formatted? Now, with the help of 4 Ws, formulate the thesis title
which should tell the what, the who, the where, and the
when of your research work. 1. What is the topic?

Bachelor of Arts in Journalism (BAJ) 1-1D
3. Where will the research take place?
