For this Application, you will reverse your thinking by examining each of the approaches individually and writing a paper in which you develop and defend a research problem, purpose, and questions that would fit each approach.To prepare for this Application:

o Defend why the problem, purpose, and questions fit with this approach. Craft a 5- to 7-page paper in which you do the following:
