Text and Context in Qualitative Educational Research: Discourse Analysis and the Problem of Contextual Explanation.
Gilbert, Rob
Linguistics and Education, v4 n1 p37-57 1992

However, a discourse analysis framework can be useful in improving qualitative research in education by relating accounts of specific sites and events to their social contexts. (27 references) (MSE)
