Focused on providing as full a picture as possible of what is considered to be "good" research, Research Methods in Education and Psychology explains quantitative and qualitative methods and incorporates the viewpoints of various research paradigms into the descriptions of these methods. It not only covers two of the standard paradigms (postpositivist and interpretive/constructivist) but also a relatively new emancipatory paradigm that is inclusive of the perspectives of feminists, ethnic/racial minorities, and persons with disabilities. In each chapter, Donna M. Mertens carefully explains a step of the research process from the literature review to types of research method to analysis and reporting of quantitative or qualitative approaches. As an added plus, she includes a sample study and abstract in each chapter to illustrate the concepts discussed in that chapter. To enhance your students reading, she has also included: - Chapter opening examples and lists of topics to consider - Boxed examples and points to consider - Sample studies in every chapter to illustrate key ideas - Sequence steps to guide each stage of the research process - End-of-chapter "Questions and Answers for Discussion and Application" to elicit further reflection of the material covered
I was surprised when a friend told me he wasn't aware that St. Bernard had ever had a college. After thinking about it for a moment, I realized it had been almost thirty years since St. Bernard College closed its doors. That was what motivated me to write a book about my experience there. I attended St. Bernard College from August 1966 until May 1970. It was a time when St. Bernard College strived with attendance peeking during those years. Also of significance, various sports were putting St. Bernard on the map. The 1967-68 basketball team was outstanding, winning their conference championship in one of the highest scoring games in conference history. In writing the book, I mention many other things that went on there, including campus activities, other sports and the professors, priests and students of the college. The book emphasizes two primary things: that outstanding basketball team of 1967-68 of which I was a member, and the influence Coach Charles Richard had on his athletes, students and the college itself. You will take a walk down memory lane as you read about what it was like at St. Bernard College in the late Sixties.
