First published in 1992. This book provides accounts of case-study research and evaluation in the area of special educational needs carried out by teachers in ordinary and special schools. Contributors discuss their experiences of the problems and possibilities of teacher research and provide advice on information-gathering, analysis and writing up. The findings presented address both whole-school matters, such as the use of support staff in ordinary schools, and the development of an assessment policy in a special school, and a range of current issues, such as partnership with parents and the teaching of children with emotional and behavioural difficulties.
It is of interest to all teachers and tutors involved in research-based courses, students in primary and secondary initial teacher training, teachers on in-service courses, support staff for special educational needs.
