8-10 Page Research Paper

Topic topic must have some application to exploring a particular topic and evaluating a specific theory in light of recent research. Consequently, you have a great deal of latitude on choosing the area you want to research. The paper must include your analysis of the topic, along with the literature review, written in the format and style discussed in the text. The paper will be written in accordance with APA format and be between 8-10 pages in length, not counting the title page, abstract, and reference list. You will have at least 10 sources, all properly cited. Papers will be run through SafeAssign to check for originality. Wikipedia or some other encyclopedia will not be accepted as a legitimate source. Instead, you must use legitimate published research, i.e. articles taken from PsycArticles or comparable databases. In other words, I expect you to use Journal Articles, not commentaries found on the internet. Papers submitted after the due date will have 1½ letter grade deduction for each day. Papers will be judged on APA citation and referencing, as well as on the level of analysis (appropriate for college level), grammar, spelling, and adherence to these standards. The Reflection responses and peer responses will assist in developing the final paper.

Final papers will have the following section headings: Introduction (including background of the study), Statement of Problem, Purpose and Significance of the Study, Research Questions and Hypotheses, Theoretical Base, Definition of Terms, Limitations and Assumptions, Literature Review (divided into subheadings), Research Method (including research approach and design, Protection of participants, Sample and Setting, Data Collection/procedures and instruments), Summary/Discussion

My topic of interest is bullying within the LGBTQ youth, with an emphasis on the cause and effect of the relationships. Is it possible that a simple explanation can explain the phenomenon that is bullying within the LGBTQ youth community? For example, do bullies commit hateful acts or say hateful slurs simply because the bully doesn’t like the way the person dressed? These are the answers that I am aiming to get within my research. I want to know why.

The research design that I feel will benefit the most would be by case study. I have chosen a case study because they are rooted in several disciplines. Case studies are to be used when the researcher wants to focus on how and why, the behavior is to be observed, not manipulated, and to further the understanding of the given phenomenon. With a case study, multiple options are available for gathering data (“Types of Qualitative”, n.d). The option that I feel would fit my research the best would be an interview.

I have chosen an interview because I feel this would allow for the participants to be candid in their responses and I would be able to get a feel of their attitude toward the subject. I would like to have a sample of 20 people within two separate controlled groups. From there, I would have two controlled groups of ten go through a questions and answer type interview on why they committed the actions in which they did. I want to know at the end of the day the driving force behind their hate of LGBTQ youth. Also, with the victim there, it would allow for both perspectives to be heard.

The type of information I hope to gain from the interviews are a raw perspective into why people have so much animosity toward the LGBTQ youth community. Is it because of how they were raised? Are the filling an insecurity that they feel can only be accomplished by trying to taking down others? What is the motivation behind the hate?

Attached you can find what I have been working on thus far as it pertains to the paper.
