I already have most of it done just need the content analysis part … will send you what I have completed already
Since this is not a methods-focused class, you will not write a formal Method section. However, please use the first page of your analysis section to explain how you did the analysis. You will need to describe what artifact you selected and why, how you conducted the analysis (e.g., take notes during each viewing), and how you came up with the examples or themes that you’ll analyze (e.g., informed by previous research, or emerged from watching)? You will also need to include necessary contextual information about the artifact. For example, if you are analyzing television advertisements, you will need to discuss which ads you chose and why, the channels on which they can be seen, air date and run time, target audience, etc. If you are analyzing a television program, you would need to include what season(s) and episodes you selected and why, how many times you watched each episode, and so on.
After the Method section, you’ll move into the Analysis. Here you will begin by providing a brief overview of your impressions of the artifact and your findings. Then, you’ll explain your findings, which will likely take the form of themes based on patterns that you observed. For example, if you are analyzing how musicians challenge or reinforce gender role stereotypes, you may analyze performances based on the following themes: traditional performances of masculinity, traditional performances of femininity, and transgressive performances of masculinity and femininity.
A general rule of thumb is to shoot for three themes, but two could work in certain cases as long as you give enough depth for each one. You will need to provide examples that illustrate each theme. Be sure to use your examples carefully – do not simply describe the show or a particular scene/episode. You will briefly describe and contextualize the example, and then you must analyze it and explain how the example relates to the concept(s) you’ve selected and the theme.
Things to keep in mind:
i.Labels. Use the following labels accordingly: Method, Analysis (with subheadings for your theme titles), and Discussion. This helps with organization.
ii.Tense. Use the past tense. For example, “I analyzed all episodes in season one.”
iii.Use your literature review. Refer to the research discussed in the literature review when you do the analysis. Make sure each in-depth example you provide has a “so-what?” answered – explain why the example is relevant and provide depth of analysis. Referring to the literature will help in providing greater depth of analysis.
When writing your analysis, include the following:
a.Method (brief). Describe the artifact you selected and why, how you conducted the analysis (e.g., take notes during each viewing), and how you came up with the examples or themes that you’ll analyze (e.g., informed by previous research, or emerged from watching)? Include necessary contextual information about the artifact – refer to the examples above.
b.Overview. Provide a brief overview of the themes that you found in the artifact examples.
c.Themes and Examples. Provide an explanation/definition of the theme as well as examples from the artifact that illustrate the theme in action. Give 3-4 examples for each theme, while providing in-depth analysis for 1 or 2 of those examples.
d.Discussion. This is the final section of the paper. End your paper with a summary of your findings and what they mean, a discussion of their importance, limitations of your study, and two or three ideas for future research in this area of communication research.
