Visual narrative: a technique to enhance secondary students' contribution to the development of inclusive, socially just school environments - lessons from a box of crayons
Carrington, Suzanne B., Allen, Kate, & Osmolowski, Daniel (2007) Visual narrative: a technique to enhance secondary students' contribution to the development of inclusive, socially just school environments - lessons from a box of crayons. Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, 7(1), pp. 8-15.
This paper reports on a project that involved Australian secondary school students working as participatory researchers in collaboration with a researcher and two teachers. Research methodology using visual narrative techniques provided the students with a conceptual lens to view their school community. The examples of visual narrative shared in this presentation depict problems, contradictions of exclusion and celebrations of inclusion in the lived world of the students. Photographs combined with narratives represent students' view of their social, cultural and political environment. This project illustrates how the insights of students can help break down assumptions, values and meanings that block progress to achieving more socially just schools.
