History of Marijuana in the United States For this assignment, you will report and analyze the results of your observation with the intent of developing a deeper understanding of your community of study. The report should include:
-A Background section that presents your research question, summarizes your observation questions (what you wanted to find out from the observation), states your hypotheses (what you thought you’d find out from your observation), describes your population and describes your role among the group (participant/non-participant observer)
-A Methods section that details your observation process, including note-taking techniques, where and when you conducted the observation, and “thick description” of the observation site and participants
-A Results section ordered by significance and reported by theme or topic that tells readers what you discovered from your research by describing and interpreting findings (it’s a good idea to use the themes or topics as subheadings within this section)
-A Conclusion section that tells readers what your observation results reveal about your topic, how they help to answer your research question, and why they are meaningful; you may also mention any researcher or participant biases, research design flaws, oversights/missed opportunities, and/or directions for future research.
Reports should be approximately 2-3 pages in length and follow either APA or MLA style guidelines.
