[SOLVED] Three Generations Interpretative
The Interpretive Paper The Interpretive Paper requires you to analyze (separate out and examine specific ideas or statements of the people you interviewed) and synthesize (recombine the separate elements to create a new whole) your interviews. An Interpretive Paper involves making comparisons between the reality in the lives of the people who you interviewed and the theories of adult learning and development studied in this course. You may find that their experiences either support or do not support the theory of a particular author. Or perhaps some experiences do support theory and some do not. The Interpretive Paper includes how the interviewees’ apply formal and informal learning experiences to what you have learned from adult development and adult learning theory. What are the issues the family members face at different ages? How do they differ? How are they similar? How does being a member of the same family affect life development? Which theory or theories of adult learning and adult development do the individuals’ lives seem to exemplify? § Often students have problems at this point if they did not ask the right questions during the interviews. Be certain that as you determine the questions for your interviews, you consider the kinds of information you will need to write the Interpretive Paper. § End your paper with a section that reflects on what you learned in the interviews, the relevance of the adult learning and development theories, and how it all applies to the workplace. What do you now understand about the learning needs and obstacles of people who are at a different stages and transitions in their lives? How will this knowledge improve your professional expertise as a teacher, a trainer, and a manager of adult learning programs? § One of the biggest challenges in writing the Interpretive Paper is how to organize it so that it has a clear, logical flow. Here are some possible factors to consider as you organize and write it: Select a theme or central focus that unifies the paper. Create a logical progression throughout the paper. Set-up a rhythm of compares and contrast throughout the paper. Use headings to help the reader follow the various sections. (See APA 6th edition for levels of headings.) Remember to write an abstract. Create a table of contents that shows the organization of the paper. Focus on a few theorists rather than trying to include all of them. Removing a weak or under-developed section may improve the paper.
