Grabill: Where's your methodology chapter?
Grabill: Your methodology chpater?
Me: I have several -- Each study is a different methodology, therefore I can't just have one methodology chapter.
Grabill: Why is that?
Me: Because how can I describe one methodology with 3 different studies?
Grabill: You're thinking about the methods used in each of these studies. Look at it not in terms of the different studies, but in terms of the methodology under which these 3 studies fall.
Grabill: You talk about Afrafeminist methods in your studies, and you define teacher-research a particular way, so that's your methodology.
Me: Oh. Since teacher-research typically (if it is at all) talked about in the context of Afrafeminism, then I need to define what Afrafeminst teacher-research looks like.
Grabill: That's where I see your work contributing to the field.
Me. Now the challenge will be to explain coherently what that looks like.
Grabill: Yep. That's your methodology chapter.
Me: so I have to add a chapter.
Grabill: Yes. You'll have six chapters instead of five.
