Abstract

My current research topic as an Educational Doctoral (EdD) student involves the fusing of race, gender and religion. A thesis attempting to explore these facets was fated to be one with a tumultuous methodology. The educational experiences of ethnic minorities are well documented (Troyna, 1991; Haque, 2000; Pearce & Lewis, 2019) and thus, the task of selecting an appropriate method to assist the researcher in this thesis was a challenging one. As such, the synoptic methodology presented in this article is an attempt to portray the journey of an EdD student that debates the decision to use the following research methods: (1) classroom observations, (2) individual interviews with pupils and teachers, and (3) focus group interviews with pupils; as well as her justification for selecting Thematic Analysis for analysing the data produced from these methods using Braun & Clarke’s (2022) guidelines.
