Guy Roberts-Holmes’ book has such a wonderful, easy to follow, step-by-step approach to breaking down what many students find a daunting prospect during their studies: managing, planning and carrying out their research project.
As a student attempting to conduct research and write academically, I would definitely recommend this book to any student in the early years field. The book provides an in-depth knowledge of concepts, methods, structure and research process. It also includes experiences of students which is a great help for beginners and provides actual guidance from the beginning till the end.
A useful text for beginner researchers in the field of early childhood education
This is an excellent text, suitable for students undertaking research projects on a range of education- and childcare-based courses. It leads the reader through the whole process by breaking large ideas and concepts down into small sections, and includes a range of activities such as checklists, practical tasks designed to develop reflective skills, and suggestions for further reading. The book also constantly reminds the reader of how the child must always lie at the heart of Early Years research, with a focus on ethics, participation and positive outcomes.
As an Early Years tutor who used a earlier edition of this to help towards writing my own Literature review, it is fantastic to see an updates version to share with my own learners. Fantastic in helping with structure to your Literature Review especially if you are not used to writing with a high word count. reference made to date collection, methodology, ethics and much more.recommended for level 4 onward.
The Fourth Edition of this book is additionally useful as the enhanced 'literature review' elements fit well with choices many of the students make for their project development and project modules. Beyond this, it a text that many of the students choose to buy when they compare what is on offer by reviews 'research' books in the College library. Good value and well organised and accessible. Additionally, the new module tutor quickly added a copy to her own 'library'.
This is a very accessible book to support final year undergraduate students to complete their independent school-based projects. The case studies help to illustrate key points and it provides students with a useful structure and suggestions for further reading.
An excellent update to a must-have resource. This guide is written clearly and provides students with all the knowledge they need to succeed with their first research projects.
