Unraveled, Untold Stories: An Ethnodrama
Davis, C. Amelia
Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, v64 n3 p240-259 Aug 2014
In this selection, the author provides a re-representation of data that honors the voice of participants, allowing readers the opportunity to draw their own interpretations about what the participants' lived experiences mean. Developed from a study designed to explore the lived experiences of 18- to 25-year-olds transitioning from high school into adult basic education programs, the narratives of 12 GED students are presented here in the form of an ethnodrama. The script is meant to open a space to vocalize tensions felt among the participants regarding their experiences in school and their transitions to adult education, while at the same time fracturing what adult educators believe they know about high school leavers.
