Student Stories in a High School Physics Class.
The naturalistic inquiry is premised on a story narrative to describe classroom experiences. In an ongoing dissertation research study into the teaching and learning of secondary science, classroom stories were constructed to portray a student's point of view. The student's classroom goals, roles, and expectations for the teacher are discussed. The student signals his discontent with the teacher's instructional strategies by acting out inappropriately in class. It is concluded that teachers and researchers can better understand the effectiveness of classroom instruction by understanding students' experienced and preferred goals and roles for themselves and their teachers.
