It has been quite a while since I have posted anything on my research project but it’s not because I haven’t been working on it. For the past year, while teaching full-time, writing freelance stories and taking MEd. courses, I’ve been working on this project.
I have actually finished the field work and it was an amazing experience – one that I will write about in the near future. I have transcribed all the interviews and I am in the process of analyzing the data.
Getting to this point in my research project has not been a straightforward process though. I had been working on an idea for sometime (as I explained in a previous post) but decided to abandon it for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it was too ambitious for a master’s project and secondly, I would need to spend sometime (perhaps months) doing fieldwork, away from my family, to complete it. I didn’t want to do that and so I began searching for something closer to home.
