Bruce Uhrmacher and Christy McConnell Moroye, this classic text on qualitative research is ideal for both novice and established researchers. Eisner's seminal work on mind, education, and res...earch explores the ways in which the methods, content, and assumptions in the arts, humanities, and social sciences can help us better understand our schools and classrooms. The Enlightened Eye expands how we think about inquiry in education and broadens our views about what it means to "know" with the goal of positively influencing the educational experience of those who live and work in our schools. The text includes examples depicting this type of research and how it can be used to evaluate teaching, learning, and the school environment. Book Features: provides researchers with ethical frameworks promoting diversity and inclusivity; establishes connections between qualitative inquiry in our daily lives and its functions in the practice and study of education; and broadens understanding of how we come to know the world.
