Initial Post is due in 12 hours of 250 words. I also attached two posts of other students, so you can reply it. NO Plagiarism. I need Turnitin Report. All sources must be cited in proper references. Please check it carefully.
To prepare for this discussion, read the instructor guidance, Chapter 12 by Levitt (2016), and Sections 3.1, 3.2, “Pros and Cons of Observational Research” and “Types of Observational Research” in Section 3.4 of the Newman (2016) textbook.
View the following videos: Different Qualitative Approaches (Links to an external site.) and When to Use a Qualitative Research Design? Four Things to Consider (Links to an external site.).
Then, determine from the list below your assigned qualitative research design based on the first letter of your last name:
G-L: Grounded theory
M-R: Narrative research
Using the Research Methods research guide’s list of suggested articles, look for information about your assigned qualitative research design. You may also search the library databases for articles about the research design. In your initial post:
Evaluate the features of the design and what kinds of research topics it is suitable for.
Explain the data collection and data analysis methods used in the design.
Cite at least one scholarly/peer-reviewed article about the design and one published research study that used the design, for a total of at least two scholarly/peer-reviewed journal articles.
Document your sources in APA style (Links to an external site.), with in-text citations and references listed at the end of the post. For additional guidance see the Citing Within Your Paper (Links to an external site.) and Formatting Your References List (Links to an external site.) resources from the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Read several classmates’ posts and respond to one post for each of the other three qualitative designs. Ask any questions you have about how the design works. Compare the design to the one you were assigned.
What features are the same or similar? What features are different between the designs? Are you familiar with any studies that used the design? If so, please share the topic of the study. Check your own thread for replies and answer any questions from others about the design you presented.
According to Lieblich, narrative research is a study of narrative materials or anything that uses narrative (1988, p.14). In essence, narrative research focuses on understanding the experience and point of view of the narrator.
According to Squire, Andrews, and Tamboukou, narrative research seems to be used very often, especially in social research, because interviews or personal testimonies create narrative to research (Squire, C., Andrews, M., & Tamboukou , M., 2013, p.1).
Furthermore, Squire, C., Andrews, M., & Tamboukou , M., explain that narrative research data may be overwhelming since narrative can be open to interpretation, in reference to collecting too much data and not knowing where to start or end; which is both good and bad (2013, p.1).
Data collection for this type or research includes, but is not limited to, audio recordings, journals, interviews, stories, autobiography writing, pictures, and more. The type of analysis used is qualitative; since content is collected from texts, then counted, organized, and interpreted (Lieblich,1998, p. 14).
Furthermore, depending on the research question and data being collected, data analysis varies; whether the author wants to make something out of the story, combine findings, look for patterns in stories, etc.

Topic: Grounded Theory
Grounded theory permits researchers to develop a method that describes and/or explain situations that can “accurately perceive and present another’s world” (Jacelon & O’Dell, 2005). The grounded theory focuses on an informative natural method in conjunction with strategies.
Examples of these strategies are observations, interviews, and documentation. Becoming one of the most frequently adopted qualitative research methods, it discloses the behavior and social relationships of groups.
This type of research methodology utilizes inductive reasoning as well as the hypothetic-deductive model of the scientific method. Grounded theory constructs data systematically and analyzes by using comparative analysis.
In my chosen journal, two out of three schools that were invited to take part participated. Each participant completed an individual interview, as well as the parents of the participants, completed an informed consent document. All possessed documents for the analysis were securely stored within a filing cabinet.
During this study, the individual interviews were audio-recorded, analyzed and transcribed verbatim before conducting the next interview. The researchers used the constructivist grounded theory approach to conduct the individual teen girl’s interview to identify the insight of how they are influenced by their significant other
