Return to the “Developing Research Questions” assignment
from Module/Week 3. With interview transcripts in hand, create a code book for
interviews. Begin in small groups, look at the ways people coded their
respective interviews. See if there is agreement on major and minor codes.
Discuss the different kinds of stories each coding scheme might tell. Cut and
sort by major and minor codes looking for patterns, relationships, further
categorizations. Make note of analytical findings. Hold onto these clumps of
coded data for a future exercise.
