codes of the street
|Posted By: ramona beal on October 5, 2003|
As a graduate student studying this issue I too am concerned that my study actually measures what I have set out to measure-the construction of academic identity among minority,first generation and low income students.
What is the focus on the article regarding codes of the street? I did not see, from your review how Willie connected to this literature or why it was important to focus on it in this study. Can you elaborate for me please on why you feel it's an important connection for her to make?
