MetadataShow full item record
Ethnography allows undergraduate researchers to observe 5th grade girls in a setting where they are not seen as authority figures. By positioning themselves as "buddies," the girls see their researchers as friends and mentors. In this dual role as researcher/buddy, these undergraduates enrich our understanding of adolescent females as they mentor these girls.
