Last week in class, we talked about the differences between fieldnotes and memos. Fieldnotes consists of "raw" data, and are mostly descriptive. Research memos, in contrast, are analytical and interpretive; i.e, they are an attempt to make sense of what you are seeing across your raw data. Notice that I said "an attempt" here. Leave yourself open to intuition and gut feelings here in these early stages of memo writing.
For this week's memo, look over your last week(s) of data collection. What are some recurring themes and patterns as you review your fieldnotes and other data? What new questions/surprises have arisen? Write up a research memo that addresses these issues.
