Community-based qualitative research: Approaches for education and the social sciences
Community-based qualitative research: Approaches for education and the social sciences is 208 pages of guidance on designing and implementing community-based qualitative research projects. Written by an associate professor at Northern Illinois University, this text offers students and researchers handouts and templates to help them apply their own research to the concepts broached in the book. Questions for reflection and discussion can be found at the end of each chapter.
Part one of this book, the introduction, takes a look at similar and related types of research approaches such as participatory action research and community-based action research and discusses relevant theories and concepts. Part two highlights the design and implementation of community-based qualitative research. Part three then looks at findings and results of research performed with this methodology and how and where to disseminate them. Case studies and real-life examples are offered to help cement the concepts throughout these chapters. Student activities for the classroom are also included.
