Clandinin & Rosiek (2007) state that narrative inquiry is the study of experience through narratives of the participants and the research has to think reflexively and narratively through the research process. Through such narratives from participants, gender violence at school was explored from the views of the learners, teachers and
The aim of this literature review is not criticizing the storytelling literature, but we are looking for finding some information and evidence to demonstrate the potential relevance of storytelling in HRD. It is worth noting that we do not claim this research is a sort of integrative and comprehensive literature review. In an integrative literature review, the researchers should critique literature written on a phenomena (Callahan, 2014), but in this paper we are not going to critique storytelling literature, rather, we seek to gather, analyze and synthesize information in the literature to increase awareness of how effective storytelling can be for HRD practitioners. So, we can claim that we have tried to see the relevant literature to our purpose of paper, as much as
al., (2007) state that inquiry requires “the identification of assumptions, use of critical and logical thinking and consideration of alternative explanations.” Thus, all students, regardless of their abilities, need to be motivated and interested in order to develop better attitudes to succeed in the content area of science. Such engagement can be developed with a proper inquiry based instruction (Singh et. al., 2010). Lee (2005) argues that not only inquiry-based instruction supports language acquisition, but also the knowledge in scientific concept being
The main purpose of this chapter is to provide an outline of the research methods that will be used and to explain the procedures that will be employed to collect the data in the intended study. Since the scope of the study has been determined, and its aim and objectives have also been identified, it is very important to outline the methodology that will be adopted to pursue the issues relating to the research questions. This involves indicating the particular research philosophy and strategic approach that will be assumed by the researcher. Research is a systematic investigation to increase the sum of knowledge (Fellows and Liu, 2003). Marshal and Rossman (2006) define research as a systematic inquiry to provide a better understanding of
Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Situational Analysis Self- concept and self- esteem are two psychological terms that are very important and commonly used interchangeably because it is important to know on how we see yourself honestly and to like or at least accept yourself, and the internal barriers that keep you from doing your best to achieve success and happiness. Self -concept or self -image is the sum total of all the knowledge and information a person has of himself. It includes factors like your gender, name, personality, physical appearance, race, likes and dislikes, beliefs, values, social history, nationality, schooling, family, career, accomplishments, failures, skills and talents. The self-concept also includes what the person he thinks might become in the future and what he was like in the past oneself. It comes from the knowledge of oneself and what one believes others think of himself.
Self, is a dynamic, open system, based on ones actions. King (1981) explains self as Jersild’s (1952) definition that “knowledge of self is a key to understanding human behavior because self is the way I define me to myself and to others. Self is all that I am. I am a whole person. Self is what I think of me and what I am capable of being and doing.
The study focuses on the effects or outcome of the study, rather than intertwining the research inquiry with politics or having a philosophical approach. It will be more of a traditional form of research, which is intended to reduce the ideas into a small, discrete set to test, such as the variables that comprise hypotheses and research questions. Postpositivist worldview is sometimes called the scientific method and is usually best suited with quantitative research than qualitative. Research Design. Quantitative analysis is the best research design or strategies of inquiry for this study.
It examines phenomenon through the numerical representation of observations and statistical analysis. Quantitative research could also be about asking people for their opinions in a structured way in other to have hard facts and statistics to guide 3. RESEARCH PROCESS Research: is a method of describing, exploring, relating or establishing the fact of an existing concept, factors affecting the phenomena and the relationship among them. Process: collection of the activities carried out in the research is referred to as the process. Research process is an orderly and systematic process that requires more art than science through thought and patience.
There is a myriad of reasons why narrative inquiry is appropriate for this study. The rationale for applying a narrative inquiry to this study is because it is one of the best ways to reflect upon experiences that explore multicultural and linguistic teaching strategies (Cavendish, 2011). Additionally, narrative inquiry is about knowing, as it allows teachers to reflect upon their individual teaching practices, which has the capability to shape and transform current teaching practices into something new and effective in the multicultural classroom (Mendieta, 2013). Narrative inquiry is salient in this study because it allows ESOL teachers to closely examine their language instructional strengths and weaknesses in the classroom, and helps
The self perception theory consists of two basic claims. The first claim is that people develop their own attitudes, beliefs, and other internal states by observing their own behaviour. (Tuntufye., 1993: 268). Additionally, the self perception theory is one of the most important theories that help me as an individual to develop self knowledge because it explains how people get to know themselves under a wide range of conditions. The people around me are the people around me have no impact on myself perception because this happens inside me by observing my own
