Research is something many Early Childhood Studies students find intimidating. As a result this book has been designed with early childhood student in mind to help them through the research process.

The book covers the whole research journey exploring the different methodologies & principles as well as how to undertake a research project, making it a whole course companion. Following a linear and progressive structure, it logically helps students work through their course and introduces the topics to beginners in simple and clearly explained terms. Once students have gained confidence, they are able to delve into the further reading suggestions and the research in focus boxes which look at international published examples of research to understand the real world effects and implications. Activities throughout help cement knowledge and case studies giving examples and scenarios of real student research show readers how to present their own findings. A brand new reader guide to research to aid navigation and a new chapter on research proposals are now also included.

This new Third Edition is also complemented by online resources that offer valuable additional resources for both instructors and students, including:

Videos per-chapter relating to chapter outcomes supported by critical questions Flashcard glossary to consolidate learning MCQs to test understanding Testbank of questions for assignment setting Free journal articles for wider reading PowerPoint slides

If you would like to integrate these resources into your university's learning management system, use the testbanks for assement or practice, and seamlessly direct your students to the freely available extra materials, please get in touch with your local rep.

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. To sign up, or for more information, click here.
