Dahl, Karin L.
Theory into Practice, v34 n2 p124-30 Spr 1995
Describes an ethnographic study that called for observing and listening to young inner-city learners as they engaged in reading and writing, and developing field note accounts about what learners did during these periods. The paper examines complexities in learning to interpret the children's perspectives, such as the need to include home visits in the research. (SM)
