Critical Inquiry into Urban African-American Students’ Perceptions of Engineering

Critical Inquiry into Urban African-American Students’ Perceptions of Engineering The purpose of this study was to critically examine the perceptions that African-American high school students have towards engineering. A qualitative research design using criterion sampling and snowballing was used to select seven African-American students from urban high schools to participate in the research. Semi-structured interviews were used to collect data from participants attending urban high schools on the east and west coast. Using Critical Race Theory (CRT) as the theoretical framework, the study was able to produce “emergent themes” from collected data. Findings from this study will help researchers understand how African-American students may perceive the field of engineering. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of African American Studies Springer Journals
