Description - Doing Research with Children and Young People by Sandy Fraser

'The author gives an excellent overview and explores how children have been seen as objects and subjects in research as well as increasingly as participants and more recently still as researchers.' - International Journal of Research and Method in Education 'This book is especially beneficial in terms of its breadth of discussion on the legal, ethical and moral issues of conducting research with children and young people alongside the key methodological challenges that students and practitioners are faced when conducting this type of research' - Research Policy and Planning Doing Research with Children and Young People introduces researchers to the key considerations involved in working with children and young people. The book highlights issues which arise at different stages in the process and which all researchers need to take account of as they plan and carry out a study. These include: * ethical and legal issues * philosophical underpinnings of research * age and diversity of the children involved * evaluation and dissemination of findings. Doing Research with Children and Young People has been developed to accompany The Open University course Research with Children and Young People (EK310). It is an ideal introduction for all students and practitioners preparing to research in fields such as education, health, welfare, childhood and youth studies, psychology and sociology.
