Qualitative research for education: an introduction to theory and methods
This concise, applied, and very clearly written introduction to qualitative research methods can be used effectively in a semester, or year-long course. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with a background for understanding the uses of qualitative research in education (and other professions) to examine its theoretical and historical underpinnings, and to provide the "how-to's" of doing qualitative research. This new edition places qualitative research within current debates about research methods and alternative ways of knowing. While the authors approach the subject from a sociological perspective, they also take care to reflect the many changes in conceptualization of qualitative research brought by post-structural and feminist thought.
