Query:   Fellow subscribers,

I am working on a graduate degree in ESL at Purdue Univ. I have
recently become interested in ethnography and its utility
in studying ESL program (particularly adult programs). I have
a theoretical discussion by Watson-Gegeo (1988) but have been unable
to locate any more articles or books (theoretical or actual studies
done with this methodology).

Does anyone have any refrences for this combination. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and pardon the double listing on SLART.

Could anybody help me with this?

Many thanks to all,
