In this innovative guide to research in early childhood, the research process is presented as a journey and this book is your roadmap. The authors take you step-by-step through the practical considerations and complexities of undertaking research with young children featuring the real-world research journeys of two student researchers. Their authentic stories describe the emotions, challenges and moments of exhilaration involved in completing a research project.
The book gives guidance on all aspects of the research process, including:
- selecting a topic
- ethical considerations
- collecting your data
- analysing your data
- disseminating your findings.
This book will be an invaluable guide to students of Early Childhood completing a research project or writing a thesis or dissertation.
A thorough book that covers all the essential areas of research. Highly recommended for Early Childhood Studies students.
Too detailed and academic for the level of research required for the level that we deliver
A really interesting book using a different perspective as it follows the research journey of a range of researchers. The early childhood focus is particularly valuable as the reader can follow the developing ideas and the choices made. A useful supplemental book for any early years researcher.
A very interesting book which explores the threotical framewords and the practice of research. Helpful case studies which allow students to understand these topics.
Love chapter 10 - "the journey" as research in early childhood studies certainly feels like that. I particularly like how the subsections are questions.
This book is very useful to the learners when completing both the Cache Unit 10 research project and Welsh Baccalaureate
Advanced Individual Investigation.
A valuable resource for any childhood studies student.
This book has been very helpful for MA students and their research has benefited from relevant decision-making. Excellent guidance and clear explanations.
This book is clearly presented, is considerate of the needs of learners and provides an easy step guide through the research journey.
Really good book to use with level three childcare learners.
