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.
