Who Am I? Who Are You? – Negotiating a Researcher Identity
Keywords:researcher identity, grade two classroom, literacy
This article examines the process of negotiating a researcher identity with teachers and students during an ethnographic case study that explored literacy engagement in a grade two classroom. I consider the tensions presented and the negotiations undertaken during the study and conclude that the rhythm of negotiation is of critical importance to establishing trust in qualitative research.
