Ethical issues in conducting literacy research in school and out-of-school settings
This invited paper, authored by members of the National Reading Conference Ethics Innovative Community Group (ICG), discusses ethical issues involved in conducting literacy research in formal and informal school and out-of-school settings. The researchers ground their work in Noddings’ ethics of care applied to educational settings (1984, 1999, 2002). The authors introduce each literacy research section with a vignette that illustrates ethical issues under consideration, followed by an analysis of the types of issues that arise in each setting. The analyses raise questions about ethical research practices for the field of literacy research.
