This highly successful introductory text has been updated in light of recent legislative changes in education, such as the introduction of teacher appraisal and the move towards more heavily school-based training. Yet, the guiding principle of Research and the Teacher remain simple: how to produce a school-based research that is both useful and rigorous. It offers a clear account of the research process and provides a sound basis from which teachers can realistically conduct school-based research projects. Additional sections include a discussion of the impact of feminism on educational research. The book also provides further coverage of action and case study research with advice on how to write up the results. In addition, Graham Hitchcock and David Hughes have updated their invaluable annotated further reading list for each chapter.
