Ethnographic and Qualitative Methods in Educational Research: A Selected Annotated Bibliography.
Kaplan, Michael H., Ed.; And Others
Three hundred and twenty-seven citations from 1937-1980 are listed in this selective annotated bibliography on ethnographic and qualitative research techniques. It is intended for the novice ethnographer. Listed publications consist of papers, books, journal articles, reports, and workshop notes. The volume is arranged in six parts. Part one focuses on ethnographic methodologies for research. These references deal with theories and models for such research from the fields of education, anthropology, and ethnography; data collection such as interviewing and participant observation; applications of these theories and methods in evaluation studies; and the problems and issues specific to ethnographic research. Part two concentrates on the role and responsibility of the ethnographer, especially the ethnographer's training, field experiences, ethical questions faced in practice, social responsibility, and contributions to education and society. Part three offers ethnographic perspectives in the studies of schools, classrooms, and educational administration. Part four is devoted to the application of ethnographic research and methodologies in studies of educational systems of other societies and cultures. Part five deals with ethnographic studies of current problems in schools and issues such as community drug addiction, womens' rights, and education in prisons. Part six briefly lists additional bibliographies. (Author/NE)
