Helen Woodley, « 26. Using Journaling and Autoethnography to Create Counter-Narratives of School Exclusion in Britain », Open Book Publishers, ID : 10670/1.dcvvd5
Helen Woodley describes an insider study of a pupil referral unit (for excluded children) that challenges the orthodoxies that are commonly attributed to such facilities. She seeks to give the pupils a voice, and thereby to modify the views of the public and policymakers. Helen discovered the power of journaling and autoethnography as methods of data collection and interpretation, and demonstrates their value as research tools.
