10). Ethical Struggles As adults, teachers, and researchers we have struggled ethically throughout this project. Two struggles that we want to discuss here focus on the development of authentic relationships in research. The first highlights the importance of personal relationships. The second highlights the importance of reciprocity in sharing stories. To help our readers understand these struggles we present two vignettes developed from Kim’s researcher journal. Vignette #1: Getting to Know Others Personally Even as I began working with the girls in the small-group setting, I felt it would be important that they have opportunities to speak privately, as well as publicly.
We gathered transcriptions of each of the small-group sessions, copies of each of the four journals, copies of all the materials the girls had created in response to Kim’s instructions during the work sessions. There were articles, stories, information pieces, life maps, personal biographies, free-writing exercises, magazine collages, and critiques. In addition, Kim had developed a researcher’s journal that we also used as an artifact in our analysis. Using these data we completed a thematic analysis (Bogdan & Biklen, 1998).
