Description - Becoming an Evidence-Based Practitioner by Olwen McNamara
This text is for teachers who are looking, or being encouraged, to undertake research in their schools. Written by teachers and their HE research mentors, the book provides case studies which show teachers how to "do" and "use" research and how to "do" effective pedagogy. The author shows how a group of teachers set out to observe, describe, analyze and intervene in areas of the primary recipe book. The book intends to provide insights into research methods as well as generic professional issues about teaching and learning, and should be useful for teachers undertaking best practice research scholarships.
