What types of content would you use to gather the data? (Types of content could include books, e-mail messages, popular music, photographs, blog posts, newspaper editorials, poems, videos, etc.) Share your research question and type of content you would use and ask questions of other students about their research questions and content.

Topic 5 Discussion Question 2

If you wondered if popular commercial movies became more or less violent during some period (e.g., from 2000 to 2015), how could you conduct a content analysis to find an answer to your question? What content would you analyze? Would your analysis be quantitative or qualitative?
