Researcher and Teacher-Participant Found Poetry: Collaboration in Poetic Transcription
Burdick, Melanie
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v12 spec iss 1.10 Jun 2011
Different ways of writing and seeing can jointly provide a more multidimensional discussion of inquiry in education. This paper, which reports on findings of a qualitative study focused on action research with practicing teachers, describes and analyzes the ways poetic transcription of interview texts by both researcher and participant can provide a more collaborative analysis of interview data, resulting in a multifaceted reflection of teacher practice. Two teacher-participants, after being interviewed, created found poetry from their individual interview transcripts. The researcher did the same. Each set of found poems were then compared and synthesized to better distill metaphor, theme and narrative positioning from the original interview data.
