Observation types: Case study.
The first step that the case study shows is that the researchers selected the schools and the participants. They name the different schools that they visited to obtain the information. They asked to people who were at these schools to describe the income-based demographics. They spend some time to collect data. They mention that they did recorded interviews with the principal, teachers and parents. The teachers interviewed where teachers from the focus groups, the researchers also collected information from newsletters from previous year.

Provide the type and an example or examples
How do you use internet to learn grammar? How many time do you spend on internet to improve your grammar? What kind of information do you look to improve your grammar? Why do you prefer to use internet instead of other technology devices? When you are using the internet what are the elements that distract you from your grammar objective?
Interviews, observations, questionnaires...explain how you will apply your instruments and include examples
I will apply the interview first in order to obtain information about the methodologies that the teacher uses. Then I will observe as a non participant observer in order to prove the information extracted from the interview. Finally, I will apply a questionnaire to obtain information from the students.
