Ethnographic Approaches to Research in Education: A Bibliography on Method.
Wolcott, Harry F.
Over 100 entries are compiled in this bibliography which identify sources helpful in contemplating or carrying out a fieldwork approach to research in formal educational settings. The bibliography emphasizes, but is not restricted to, contributions by anthropologists. Thus, there is a preference for using the terminology of that discipline, such as ethnography vs. field study. The bibliography deals with problems of educational research and how to overcome those problems. One problem is the effectiveness of the participant-observer technique in the schools. The bibliography presents a diversity of alternative research techniques that could be applied. Books and journal articles dating from the late 1960s through the 1970s comprise the bulk of citations. Entries are listed alphabetically by the author, and include the date of publication and name of the publisher. (Author/JR)
