Dear Student,

Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. I hope this solution gets to you in time. In this particular task, you are being asked to present an article, not a study. An article therefore qualifies a news report, a journal piece or a feature that discusses the topic in mind. As a qualitative article, it has to only qualify in the following terms - it needs to describe, in textual detail, the subject in question. Qualitative data is all about text - as much description of the phenomenon as possible. As long as the text is present, you have essentially, qualitative data. I decided in utilising a newspaper article in this case following ethnographic principles - ethnography is a qualitative form of study that utilizes such data to study a phenomenon. For this particular task, as detailed in your original request, I suggest this outline:

1. Particularity of the article and why you chose it - 100 words
2. problem addressed by the article (this is topic you gave), purpose of the article and the research questions taken and addressed - 100 words
3. Benefits of the qualitative data - 100 words

As you can see, this should fit within the 300 word mark. The information below provides you with what you need. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further help. You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. Good luck with your studies.

Sincerely,
