Narrative Inquiry: My Road to Research Storytelling, a lecture and question and answer session with Dr. David Schaafsma, English Education Scholar from the University of Illinois at Chicago will take place Monday, November 7, 2011, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. in the Monongahela Room at the HUB.

David Schaafsma, the author of the recently published On Narrative Inquiry (Teachers College Press, 2011), will talk about the process of how he came to think of storytelling as one viable form of research into lives and classrooms. He will give some insight into how the book, written in collaboration with four other authors, got written in narrative as one way of modeling the process of storying the world.
