Booknews
Offers guidance as to how to conduct qualitative research in educational settings. As the authors define it, qualitative research is naturalistic (using actual settings as the direct source of data), descriptive, inductive, and concerned with process and participant perspectives. After an introduction to some of the historical and theoretical underpinnings to the field, the authors discuss the step- by-step process of conducting a study from research design and fieldwork to data analysis and write-up.
