In this data analysis session, I ask the consultants not to help me analyze or interpret a text, but, in Feldman's (2005) words, to expand it. The text was shared during a narrative interview with a beginning teacher in the Chicago Public Schools, and it describes the teacher's favorite student. My question is how I might help others enter into this text imaginatively, ponder its meaning, and expend the events the teacher describes into an ethnodrama or other meditative vehicle that makes the case for change.
