Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book successfully revives Lawrence Stenhouse's seminal work on the 'teacher-researcher' by showing the interconnectedness of teaching and research and stressing the key role of the practitioner-researcher. Its chapters provide comprehensive guidance for researchers at all levels on conducting small scale research in an ethical and reflexive way'
-Professor Jerry Wellington, Sheffield
