How can the problem statement be best written to reflect one of the approaches to qualitative research?

Creswell & Poth (2018) describe the problems statement in layman’s term as ‘creating a rationale for the need for the study’.  The problem statement is derived from vary components as Creswell & Poth (2018) explain.  The problem statement can be best written by providing the argument to why this study matters, how it can benefit the field of study, which stakeholders it can benefit, and how it can help further research in the future.  Although research professionals may not clearly state this or lead to the purpose statement, I feel that the research problem is the central focus of the research. From my experience so far with qualitative research, everything in the research paper points back toward the research problem.

How can the purpose statement be best written to convey the orientation of an approach to research?

Trying to convey the orientation of an approach to research is an area that I find more difficult.  First, I think it is important to understand that Strauss and Corbin (1990) mention 5 approaches to research with phenomenology, ethnography, grounded theory, life histories, and conversational analysis which the Creswell & Poth (2018) textbook applies. The purpose statement can be written to directly state the approach of the study so that it is very clear and using words to encode the statement to indicate the action and focus of the research (Creswell & Poth, 2018). The purpose statement should also be encoded with words to foreshadow the approach to research by words such as ‘understand’ to notate a narrative study or ‘describe’ which is useful to describe phenomenology and case studies (Creswell & Poth, 2018).  Using words that Creswell & Poth (2018) have in Table 6.1 of the text are generally acceptable to understanding the approach that will be taken along with a direct statement of the approach in the purpose statement.  The writer of the textbook also suggests including a definition for the central question and phenomenon (Creswell & Poth, 2018).

How can a central question be written so that it encodes and foreshadows an approach to qualitative research?

I interpret the central question as being the research question, or the main question that states the purpose of the study with respect to the problem that is attempting to benefit from the field of study.  The central question can be written with using the words ‘how’, ‘why’ and ‘what
