Shaub 1 Christie Shaub February 29, 2008 Professor Linden Sunstein Ch. 5 Sunstein Field working Chapter 5 – Researching People: The Collaborative Listener 1. What is ethnography according to Henry Glassie? To Henry Glassie, Ethnography is interaction, collaboration. It does not demand hypothesis, but it demands the ability to converse intimately. 2. What is the difference between closed questions and open questions in an interview? Give 3 examples of open questions you might use with a particular interview informant in you school and/or classroom. Closed questions are questions which can usually be answered in single phrases. They usually shut down further talk. Open questions are those which elicit the informant’s perspective and allow for more conversational exchange. There is no single answer. Examples: Tell me about your feelings on the integrated classroom idea. What stands out as the greatest inspirations for you to become a teacher? Describe a typical planning day for your classes. 3. Think of an artifact that might serve as a view into an actual interview subject’s perspective. His day planner. 4. What advice can you derive from “Learning How to Listen (p. 244)? I need to leave the discussion off of myself. I should plan ahead and have prepared questions, but I also need to be willing to change those questions as the discussion changes. I must show a genuine interest in my informant. 5. What did you learn about “Establishing Rapport” (Box 20) with your own interview informant? Rapport includes turning interviews into a collaborative and interactive process in which the researchers make themselves knowledgeable about their informants’ positions, interests, feelings and world views. 6. List the 9 techniques for taping and transcribing interviews and then assess which of these steps you would be able to use with your interview informants. Obtain your equipment. Prepare your equipment (batteries, etc.) Organize your interview time. Organize and listen to your audio. Log your recordings. Transcribe.
