Harper High School- This American Life

Harper High School, Part One | This American Life.

Harper High School, Part Two – This American Life

I have been using excerpts of the reports on Harper High School in Chicago by This American Life to highlight how expanded fieldnotes can work to reveal real stories that have meaning. I ask students to listen and to identify sections that they see as observations/descriptons, moments of thoughts& feeling or additional personal commentary by the reporter, and pieces of analysis of what is happening and what the situations means with connections to information from outside the research site.

It is also a series that NO ONE should miss!
