How to Conduct Research on the Inherent Moral Significance of Teaching: A Phenomenological Elaboration of the Standard Repertory Grid Application
van Kan, Carlos A.; Ponte, Petra; Verloop, Nico
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n8 p1553-1562 Nov 2010
George Kelly's repertory grid application seems a promising method for researching the moral significance of teaching from a "life world" perspective. However, we encountered several challenges employing the repertory grid in its standard form for an inquiry into the inherent moral significance of teachers' everyday classroom interactions. In this article we will set out in detail how, on the basis of the standard repertory grid application, we developed a repertory interview method that can be used to collect data that could foster a thorough understanding of the inherent moral significance of teachers' day-to-day classroom interactions. (Contains 3 images and 3 tables.)
