Project title: Telling stories together: Co-construction of narratives in European American and African American Families
Writing, writing, writing, and some more writing! We started of the semester inputting and analyzing the final set of data collected, transcribed, and coded over last semester/winter term. We had significant results (AWESOME), so we excitedly prepared a poster for the Global Summit on Childhood and started writing the final paper. We presented at the Global Summit on Childhood on March 28. A version of the final paper was submitted to ECF blackboard page last Monday. We are currently completing final edits on the final paper for submission to the journal Early Childhood Research and Practice.
