Rainbows: Theoretical Framework and Variations
By Keisha L. Merchant
Case of Agreement
Module three compares and contrast the significance of theoretical framework with mixed methodology as to a rainbow bridging variables. The rainbow illustration demonstrates the spectrum of colors. In the spectrum of colors, these variables come together to formulate the rainbow. In some sense, the theoretical framework blends all variables in a continuum to mesh together as one unit with separate parts. Therefore, these questions for this week as to the discussion of importance that the theoretical framework is significant for these reasons: the totality and wholeness of the color spectrum make the rainbow multifaceted. The theoretical framework combines the independent variables with the dependent variables as to prediction. What is this prediction that can be solidify with these outcomes? The multidimensional aspect to the theoretical framework builds the case similar to the rainbow theory of Creswell (2008) that variables move within its own dimensions. For instance the color of green created in the rainbow has the connection with the colors yellow and blue. This in turn is similar to the variables of research that correlations are necessary to compile a case from different connections that lead to other connections, but arrivals are created differently to formulate new information as to new colors. (Argosy, 2014).
The bridge of the rainbow when in speculation of bridging prediction with variables depend on the distance from one correlation to the next location of that correlation. This argument that Crewell’s (2008) theory of theoretical framework is to compile, manage and synthesize information in a circular motion rather linear motion. Well, it is a linear motion for the variables travel on one accord, but the movement of the arch demonstrates how prediction is calculated through research. The calculation through theoretical framework is using information to bend not to change. The information used is still considered as correct, but the correlations or the connections are used to bend the information toward a destination. Unfortunately, the critical component of Creswell’s (2008) theory for a theoretical framework is the unresolved matters of intersections that has been introduced by the feminist pedagogy of the systems of oppression. (Collins, 2000) This in turn changes Creswell’s theories that the rainbow can be used as an effective metaphor for intersections as to sex-trafficking research.
Rainbows and Framework
What does this mean if the rainbow theory cannot be used to create predictions for cases as to feminist stand points. The theoretical framework would suggest that these independent variables and dependent variables would provide explanation to each other and predictions for each others destination. In feminist methodology this framework would be a fallacy. The fallacy would state several triggers as to stereotyping, profiling and cultural clashing. The major concern is not that it would not work, but it would diminish the intersections that are opposite from each other as to the compass metaphor. The north and south may connect but the east and west may not connect. Yet, all sides are in connection from each other, but should not be viewed as one, or in the same as to components that relate to each other. For instance, in sex-trafficking most people would start this rainbow metaphor to build the theoretical framework to predict women are trafficked more due to the sexual appetite of their womanhood. The view that only women are sex trafficked due to the relationship that women are mostly inferior and cannot provide protection for themselves, would not be a good independent and dependent relationship when arriving as an investigator who must examine connections that have no relationships to the variables. Therefore new variables must be used to compile a case that intermix, the other variables as to location, background history, and other unattended variables that are left out of the equation.
For instance, the comparison of the 21st sex-trafficking versus the 18th century sex-trafficking models. Creswell’s (2008) approach would suggest that variables of selection would be based on race, class and sex. These variable would be the independent variables. The dependent variables would be the location as to the southern states and southern regions of other territories as to Brazil, Mexico and so forth. Now, if this theory was intrinsic for intersections, this theoretical framework would include sex-trafficking examinations on other disciplines as to chemistry, neuroscience and biology. But, wait, there is more, the rainbow can only hold one destination not many destinations therefore, the strategies of the sex-trafficker would only present one case. The schema as to criminal science and military science would suggest that sex-traffickers are only one strategy (trick) decision makers. This in turn, would develop an investigation that would bend only one direction for the prediction, forward or backward, the beginning or the end. Eventually the conclusions would only show two outcomes, which gives a small ratio for a mass population of strategists. This theory is good for small populations, small collections, and smaller research studies as to one to five variables as to the rainbow it suggests similar attributes symbolically as it would prove to be faulty in the end when intersections are involved on multidimensional that surpass the capacity rate for its use as a metaphor. The theoretical framework would have a holding capacity depending on the intersections that are included or missing. As to the example of education and intellectuals, these metaphor would work to build a theoretical framework for students and the progress for education. Why? It is based on how many variables will be introduced in the study. If only two variables are introduced, this is an important element to the research as a theory. In a sense to math, different formulas are used for different problems to solve.
