Discussion : apply the knowledge about coding qualitative interviews
Drawing from the readings and lectures from this week, apply the knowledge about coding qualitative interviews and developing analytic themes to begin your data analysis section for HW#2:
1. Upload a transcribed AND coded interview: After you transcribe your interview, conduct open coding by reading line-by-line and highlighting passages that include themes, concepts, interesting points, etc. Immediately after that passage, add a label that identifies the code in parenthesis.
2. Provide a possible thesis: After you have coded your interview, provide a brief thesis that can be supported using interview quotes from your transcription. To help formulate a thesis, read over the codes you generated and create memoes to help organize and process all the codes. What consistent patterns do you see in your codes? What theories can you start to formulate?
