Representing Qualitative Data in Poetic Form.
This paper describes the way in which the author moved from what might have been a textual explanation of a narrative analysis of qualitative data to a poetic rendition. The focus is on the work of a female graduate student working collaboratively with another graduate student. The story emerged as a teacher-as-researcher study on graduate students in a course on teaching language arts that focused on current trends in literacy education and the development of teachers. The students worked collaboratively on a project. The poem, which is included, focuses on of the student's experience in collaboration and self-expression within the context of the graduate program. It shows how she found the ability to use her own voice in her graduate writing. (Contains 22 references.) (SLD)
