Overview

Offering a comprehensive overview of qualitative research in a user-friendly format, this book provides an excellent harmony between qualitative theory and the practicalities of actually conducting qualitative research. Exercises offer beginning students the opportunity to explore issues inherent in conducting qualitative inquiry as well as to practice and refine the skills of qualitative researchers. The wealth of examples and exercises in the text is exceptional, as is the writing style.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I think it’s a great text: accessible, but sophisticated treatment of issues … the style is excellent and the writing extraordinarily clear. The mix of examples from Glesne’s own research (which shows how she has moved from approach to approach in qualitative work) and her students’ research are very informative.”

-- Lynne Hamer, University of Toledo

“[T]he book is engaging, accessible, and comprehensive.... I particularly appreciate Glesne's attention to terminology … The tools, examples, matrices, diagrams, and glossary add a valuable dimension to teaching qualitative research.”

— Anita Wadhwa, Harvard Graduate School of Education

“[Becoming Qualitative Researchers] expertly conveys the complex nature of doing qualitative research, complete with the joys and challenges, without driving students away. … They leave intrigued and encouraged, despite understanding how complex and time consuming it is…. I get students from several other disciplines including social work, public health, nursing, … they appreciate the fact that there are other examples of research in the text that come from outside the field of education.”

— Michelle Lorraine Jay, University of South Carolina
