Success with your education research project

Sharp, John, author

Success with Your Education Research Project is a practical, user-friendly text on research methods aimed specifically at undergraduate students on education courses. Research projects are carried out in schools and non-school settings by nearly all undergraduates in teacher training, Education Studies and other educational disciplines, and this book makes clear references to these courses and contexts throughout. All chapters include learning outcomes, worked examples, practical and reflective tasks and summaries of key points. Topics such as using the Net and plagiarism are covered with up to date information, while key content on literature searches, critical thinking and the development of argument provides clear guidance and ensures deeper understanding. This new edition has been updated throughout to provide greater depth on many topics.
