Doing Primary Research

Doing Primary Research

by Valerie Bodden

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Kinard
Most people conduct research every single day without even realizing it. The same skills needed for conducting research during writing are used in less formal situations in our daily lives. For example, to find out the definition of a word, one would look it up in a dictionary. To find out what happened locally yesterday, one would read the newspaper. Research is really just a quest to find specific and accurate information about a given topic. This informative book is designed to help readers conduct primary research. What is the difference between primary and secondary sources, and why are they both important? What is the difference between qualitative and quantitative research? Bodden answers all of these questions and provides suggestions for approaches to gathering and applying data. The world is full of information that can be accessed through the Internet, old books, interviews, experiments, and a myriad of other ways. This book will motivate readers to ask questions, dig for information, and incorporate what they find into their writing. Includes a glossary and a list of websites for further information. Part of the "Research for Writing" series. Reviewer: Heather Kinard
