This book presents a rudimentary exposure to the fi eld of educational research and an attempt to allay the unwarranted fear of those who perceive research as a highly technical and complex scholarly activity carried out by persons in the sciences. The author takes the position that anyone can do research and that it can be an interesting and very worthwhile experience. Educational research, particularly action research, which the author emphasizes, is an invaluable exercise about which everyone in education should be knowledgeable or at least be familiar. Starting with an explication of some salient concepts in the study of research (e.g., research, educational research, research problem v. research topic, hypothesis, experimental v. non-experimental research) , the book takes the reader through the process of conducting a research problem from problem selection and statement, signifi cance, review of literature, methodology, data analysis, fi ndings to recommendations and conclusions. Detailed descriptions of the American Psychological Association (APA) style of referencing with ample examples are provided. The book is written in simple language so that even high school students will be able to acquire a fairly good understanding of each contents. Though the primary target population is undergraduate students of education, the contents are broad enough to provide a guide for students in other disciplines, as well as whet the appetite of the general reader who seeks only a basic knowledge of research and/or educational research.

Research is something many Early Childhood Studies students struggle with; for many it’s intimidating and something 'other people' do. When we asked the authors what common problems students struggle with they said: Students find it hard to understand research methodology and theoretical frameworks within which to conduct research Sometimes students struggle to come up with an appropriate research design Students often find it hard to come up with precise research questions Analysing research data and presenting it clearly for the reader are also areas students find difficult As a result, the authors have designed this book with their early childhood student in mind to help them through the research process. The book covers the whole research journey both in terms of understanding the different methodologies & principles and in actually undertaking a research project. It follows a linear and progressive structure that logically helps students work through their course. In this new edition, the chapters have been reorganized to better suit the learning journey and a brand new reader guide to research at the start of the book has been added to aid navigation. A new chapter on research proposals as well as more on alternative ways of presenting research have also been added. The book assumes no prior knowledge and really introduces the topics to beginners in simple terms. The supportive writing style and the way difficult concepts are clearly explained is often feedback we hear from both lecturers and students. Once students have gained confidence, they are able to delve into the further reading suggestions and the topics and content covered extend into enough depth for those who want to go further in their studies. This means students really can use it throughout their whole course. Research in Focus boxes look at international published examples of research to show what it looks like in the real world and understand the effects and implications. (Countries covered are USA, Canada, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, England, Norway, Sweden, Finland, France, Italy, Belgium, South Africa, India, Singapore, Australia & New Zealand.) Activities for students to work through help them cement knowledge and understanding. Case Studies give examples and scenarios of real student research. These demonstrate best practice and show students how to present their findings in a way that conveys the decisions they have made in their own personal style rather than rather than regurgitating textbooks. Extended glossary which gets students familiar with complicated terminology. . This new Third Edition includes: Videos pre-chapter relating to chapter outcomes Flashcard glossary to consolidate learning MCQs to test understanding Penny Mukherji and Deborah Albon will be discussing ideas from Research Methods in Early Childhood in the SAGE Early Years Masterclass, a free professional development experience hosted by Kathy Brodie.
