'Written in a clear, accessible style, this inspirational book is a both a practical guide to the ethnographer's craft and a survey of the different ways of doing ethnography. Drawing on wide-ranging examples and succinct reviews of classic and contemporary ethnographies of education, the authors demonstrate the importance of developing an ethnographic sensibility. This book will be a valuable resource for educationalists'-Cris Shore, University of Auckland
i am adopting this for my testing purpose.
This book discusses ethnographic research and techniques which students within an education degree need to develop an awareness of. Highly recommended text.
Useful introduction to enthnography with follow up references.
The text povides a clear summary of the topic. There were times when I wished that issues had been explored in greater depth, but the aim here is more about providing an overview. Overall, the book constitutes an extremely good overview for any postgraduate student interested in carrying out ethnographic work in educational institutions. At the same time, it is also useful reading for those using other approaches, in that it introduces an alternative 'sensibility'.
A useful book will recommend to Dissertation students working in this field
Very helpful text that can be opened when wanting to clarify significant points on this research process
Ethnography not an appproach often adopted or discussed. useulas a text to show that ethnography is out there
Outstanding text. Top of my recommendation list for students adopting an ethnographic approach to research.
Essentail reading for all students undertaking social science resreach
I found the discussions of extracts of ethnographic writing very useful and insightful. Chapters are set out clearly and the annotated Further Reading list is very helpful.
A clearly written and engaging text which is truly inspirational for researchers in education
It provides examples of ethnography in action, explaining the complexities and strategies which can be used. An absolute must for students who may be seduced by an exciting but challenging methodological approach.
