Abstract
In this paper, I discuss my efforts to use arts-based methods to understand teachers' work in schools shaped by the No Child Left Behind law and other mass reforms. I describe how the process of writing, rehearsing, and putting up multiple performances of six ethnodramas allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of the data I used as the source material for these productions. Ethnodrama changed my view of what mattered in my data, and this understanding guided my choices as I created the scripts and worked with actors and community members to put up the shows.
