Investigation of Critical Issues in Curriculum through Documentary.
Clardy, Pauline; Cole-Robinson, Cynthia; Jones, Terrence O'C.; Michie, Gregory
This paper discusses video documentary as an alternative research method for exploring critical issues in education. The critical issues that are discussed are the in-school curriculum versus the nonschool curriculum, the devaluation and absence of the cultures of people of color, and the absence of student voice and alienation from the curriculum. Several examples of video documentaries are discussed. As education research continues to develop, it must cultivate a greater appreciation for the wisdom and experience of students and the quality they add to the understanding of their learning environments. Video documentary is one tool to bring this about. (Contains 55 references.) (SLD)
