Research Analysis 6 of 7

Read the narrative research study by Chan (2010) about the ethnic identity of Chinese Canadian students at the end of Chapter 15. Analyze the article, and answer the following questions:

  1. Why would Chan study the experiences of one Chinese immigrant student in this narrative study?
  1. Reflexivity or self-disclosure by the researcher is part of all good qualitative research, including narrative studies. How did Chan disclose her position and experiences in this study?
  • The author discussed her background as a Chinese-American.
  • The author briefly mentions her participation in the Canadian school.
  • The author intentionally distanced herself from the participant in the study.
  • The author discussed her role in making an interpretation of events

Examine the sample ethnographic study by Swidler (2000) on recitation in a rural school presented at the end of Chapter 14 and then answer the following questions:

  1. Look at the purpose statement identified in the abstract. It reads:

“This ethnographic case study describes one Nebraska teacher’s response to the multiage conditions of this naturally small institution in her use of ‘recitation” lessons.”

What is the culture-sharing group that this researcher is exploring?

  1. How would you adjust this ethnographic purpose statement to change the study to a grounded theory project?
  1. In Tables 1 and 2 you can see detailed information about the students and their parents in the small school. In terms of ethnographic results, how would you characterize this information?
  • It shows the reflexivity of the researcher.
  • It shows the researcher’s attention to detail.
  • It shows description in an ethnography.
  • It summarizes tabled information about the students and parents.
