'This is an exceptionally strong book. I learnt much of value from it, yet the text is accessible to PGCE students. It is packed with interesting and valid arguments and shows a great understanding both of classrooms and of educational research' - Michael Reiss, Institute of Education, University of London Invaluable for anyone undertaking initial teacher training courses and other postgraduate courses involving an element of educational research, this text equips the reader with the necessary knowledge and skills to be confident in appreciating the nature, limitations and possibilities of small-scale classroom research, and critically reading the research of others. It includes case examples and pedagogical features throughout to enable the reader to fully engage with the issues surrounding teaching and learning.
