Four Comments.
Cazden, Courtney
The comments focus on two topical themes and two aspects of research in the papers in this volume of the "Language and Ethnography" series dealing with ethnography and education. The first part deals with continuity and discontinuity in children's home and school lives. Borrowing from the field of second language learning, the point is made that positive as well as negative transfer is possible and needs research. The second comment focuses on folklore and education with emphasis on the notion that the study of folklore can provide curriculum content as well as analytical tools. A third section deals with researcher/educator collaboration and discusses the benefits and difficulties of such collaboration. In a final commentary on micro vs. macro levels of research, it is stated that chances to make a significant contribution to global and societal problems will depend on finding ways to link more micro analyses of educational interactions with more macro analyses of the society in which they take place.
