Successful writing for qualitative researchers by Peter Woods( Book )

35 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Researchers often find the writing up process difficult. This book explains how you get started, and how you can sustain the right frame of mind for writing. The writing process is considered, both in terms of a traditional academic approach and in the light of new forms and modes of expression that have arisen in recent years. Careful attention is paid to the editing stage; this is a major part of the work for many writers and crucial in producing the right sort of results. Working in a team equipped with new technology can go a long way to meeting many of the usual demands. Finally, consideration is given to how to prepare your work for publication." "This book should be of use to students, researchers and writers concerned with how to get their research written, and who are also interested in both the techniques and the experience of writing."--Jacket

The divided school by Peter Woods( Book )

12 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this ethnographic study of a secondary school in the UK, the author presents an incisive account of school life from the various points of view of the pupils, teachers and parents. He describes and analyses major areas of experience and methods of adapting to school for both the children and their teachers; school experience is shown to be widely varying from boredom, despair and humiliation, to gaiety, exultation and comradeship some of it officially and some of it unofficially sponsored. The description reveals a number of marked and interpenetrating divisions within schools: between teachers and pupils, parents and teachers, parents and children and between pupils themselves. These divisions are explored, analysed and related both to institutional factors and to factors outside the school. The study suggests how these factors influence pupil and teacher strategies, and hence how the details of school life relates to wider society

This book is a follow-up to Inside Schools. It reviews the position of ethnography in educational research in the light of current issues and of the author's own research over the past ten years. Starting from an analysis of teaching as science and as art, he goes on to review the general interactionist framework in which his work is situated, and how this relates to post-modernist trends in qualitative research. The approach is illustrated through reference to the author's own personal history and research career, and his recent research on creative teaching, critical events and teachers' reactions to school inspections

15 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Since the 1992 Education Act inaugurated national arrangements for inspection, schools have operated within an 'inspection climate' which pervades every aspect of school life on a continual basis. The significance of OFSTED inspections cannot be overestimated. They are often the most challenging, searching, uncompromising and stressful events teacher have ever experienced. What effects do they have on teachers and their work, on their self and role, and on school policy and ethos? Drawing on case studies from contrasting primary schools over a three- year period, this book reveals how OFSTED inspections were received within primary schools. It meets the need for detailed, rigorous research into inspections and their effects on teachers
Bilingual education and bilingualism. creative teaching, meaningful learning by Peter Woods( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do multicultural children and their parents experience the very beginning of their school careers? How do teachers mediate the demands of the educational system, and how do the children adapt? What kind of access to the National Curriculum is offered to multicultural children?" "In answering these questions the authors draw on two years' intensive research in three multi-ethnic institutions. They explore teachers' values and beliefs and how they attempt to put them into practice. They describe how, at times, teachers were constrained to get things done because of pressures operating on them, but at other times, taught creatively in a way particularly relevant to the children's concerns and cultures." --Book Jacket
