Using Non-Participant Observation in Curriculum Assessment: A Case Example.
Troutman, Benjamin I., Jr.
In this paper a rationale for the use of non-participant observation in curriculum development is presented. An assessment of the University of Georgia Anthropology Curriculum Project's Race, Caste, and Prejudice (RCP) provides a case example of the use of this qualitative model in educational research. The researcher's assessment of RCP focuses on the category of classroom interactions--the sensitivity of students to material and situation, and class ethnic composition. It is concluded that information collected on interactions among pupils, teachers, materials and environment collected through qualitative research techniques renders practical and utilitarian value to educators.
