The Enlightened Eye: Qualitative Inquiry and the Enhancement of Educational Practice

Front Cover
Merrill, 1998 - Education - 264 pages

For courses in qualitative research in education.

Now in paperback, this seminal work in qualitative research methods is the definitive statement on qualitative research from the perspective of connoiseurship and criticism. This benchmark work gives students a solid understanding of qualitative research and evaluation, and its great promise for evaluating and guiding educational practice. It demonstrates how methods used by critics in the arts and humanities such as observing performance qualities, setting, and interaction patterns also apply to the study of classroom practice. Excellent examples are provided to show students what this type of research looks like, and how it can be applied to the evaluation of teaching, learning, and the overall school environment.
