This text is excellent. It discusses the importance conducting research that is ethical. I particularly enjoyed reading the chapter on Participation and that importance that is given to actively involving children in research.
Clear, student friendly text useful for more than 1 module.
An accessible book with relevant and clear explanations of ethical issues. Up to date and thought provoking for students. Well laid out text.
A good text for use across a range of subject areas in early years, illustrating nicely for students how to think ethically across the discipline. This will be a very useful text for joining up thinking across subject boundaries, encouraging intellectual flexibility and the application of theory to practice.
Thus is helpful for students who are trying to build confidence in their exploration of more complex ethical issues in early years practice.
Good resource for learners who show an interest in further their understanding and knowledge.
This book offers an excellent overview of the growing issue of ethics.
Valuable text which supports understanding and extended thinking regarding this area of early childhood ethicality
Excellent reading, very suitable for our course/ students.
I think this is a very useful book for those who will be researching children - it will be useful for all those researching in that field.
