Abstract: A particular classroom incident, and the vignette I used to portray it, had a significant impact on the interpretative framework for my research into scientific literacy. In this chapter, I will trace the salient elements of this vignette including its construction, justification, and effects. I present the vignette, and then track back to the research methodology that I employed, which guided the writing of the vignette. I explain how this writing led to the emergence of a metaphorical framework for scientific literacy and conclude with a discussion of the criteria used to judge these forms of representation.
