about this item
Using Educational Criticism and Connoisseurship for Qualitative Research develops the practical elements of educational criticism, a form of qualitative inquiry that takes its lead from the work that critics have done in fields such as the visual arts, music, literature, drama and dance. Written by leading scholars in the field of curriculum studies, and research methods, this book explores the interpretive and evaluative aspects of educational criticism, through which the educational critic offers means for understanding and attributing significance to educational events. Featuring chapter-by-chapter activities, guiding questions, and key terms, this volume addresses matters of study design, pedagogy, and trends in doing educational criticism and connoisseurship. By offering a uniquely in-depth account of this research method, Using Educational Criticism and Connoisseurship for Qualitative Research is accessible to researchers and students in curriculum and instruction, educational leadership, and higher education.
