Ethnography and Schoolsby Yali Zou (Editor), Enrique T. Trueba (Editor), Phil Francis Carspecken (Contribution by), Douglas Foley (Contribution by), Perry Gilmore (Contribution by)
The ethnographic experience is an indelible venture that continuously redefines one's life. Bringing together important crosscurrents in the national debate on education, this book introduces the student or practitioner to the challenges, resources, and skills informing ethnographic research today. From the first chapter describing the cultural foundations of ethnographic research by George Spindler, the book traces both traditional and new approaches to the study of schools and their communities. Emphasis on discourse, critical pedagogy, and ethnicity are among the many aspects of methodology and educational change emphasized by the contributors.
