Methodology (3-4 pages)
draft a brief introduction to the section and reiterate your research question
Data Collection selected methodology description: brief description of which methodology you are selecting with some specifics. Not just qualitative or quantitative, but if quantitative are doing experimental, quasi-experimental, correlational, pretest/post test, etc. If qualitative, are you doing ethnography, phenomenology, case study, generic thematic analysis, etc.
how methodology fits the topic: describe why your selection fits your research question. Include in this section a paragraph discussing the importance of appropriate design, i.e. how the method should fit the research question. Also, include a paragraph that describes why alternative methods are a poor choice based on the research question. For instance, if your research question is to measure something, a qualitative design would not do that. If your research question is to describe something, a quantitative design could not do that.
Limitations: Address any limitations inherent in studying the area you have chosen. The limitations of the quantitative or qualitative method(s) you have chosen.
