This education research text takes a gentle approach, laced with examples and summarizing charts, tables and diagrams. A simple, direct writing style and two-colour design add to its appeal. It includes end-of-chapter application exercises forcing students to apply the information presented to a research project of their own choosing. This second edition contains two new chapters on ethics and research and doing research in schools.
