Praise for the First Edition:
`For teacher researchers at all levels of the management hierarchy. Excellent case studies around specific issues in the lives of teachers from beginners to old hands. Case studies contextualised in recent and relevant theoretical literature. First class chapters on 'Reflective practice and the teacher' and on 'Towards a culture of inquiry in school'. I have already gained a lot from this book myself and will recommend it to teacher researchers at all levels from B.Ed. to PhD' - Management in Education
The authors have updated this book which is designed for use in teacher education programmes that are devoted to the ideal of `reflective practice', as well as courses for experienced educators.
