AIDS Education: A Conversation with an African American Adolescent
Davis, Marjorie
Online Submission, Journal for a Just and Caring Education v3 n3 p289-297 Jul 1997
This article looks at the lessons that a novice qualitative researcher learned from interviewing an adolescent on AIDS education. The data informs us of what can be missed when adolescents are surveyed and not talked "to." As Toni informs us, "They should teach you this." The article points out how reciprocity, responsibility, and teaching in research is key. Toni's response to the quantitative instrument informs us, as researchers, how the qualitative method of interviewing better served as a vehicle for reciprocity by offering the emancipation that she needed. Roles were reversed in the midst of the project. The researcher became student and the adolescent became teacher. The article concludes with what an adolescent believes researchers "should" do and what researchers are "expected" to do when doing research "on" adolescents.
