Synopsis

Qualitative Inquiry in TESOL by K. Richards

Graduate and professional TESOL students will welcome this research methods textbook for undertaking qualitative, naturalistic and action research projects. Uniquely, the book offers a three-level structured progression, suited both to novice and intermediate students with a focus on development as classroom teachers of English, and to advanced students engaged in academic research work in applied linguistics. Every chapter is structured to develop the important skills for undertaking QI in a rigorous and serious way, at whatever level is appropriate for the reader's purpose. The book is both scholarly in approach and written in an engagingly direct and clear style.

Reviews

'Keith Richards'
book on qualitative methods is truly excellent. The writing is unusually clear, engaging, and carefully crafted

... Instructors of graduate-level courses on research methods will find the three-level system of the book of remarkable pedagogical value and the Reading Guides at the end of each chapter extremely useful and rich... I have no doubt this textbook will become a best seller in research methods courses in TESOL and applied linguistics programs.' - Lourdes Ortega, Northern Arizona University
