This book focuses directly on student empowerment through meaningful research. It fills a significant gap in educational literature by making explicitly the relationship between teaching method, classroom practice, and the production of knowledge. Drawing on the best of theoretical innovations over the last decade, "Students as Researchers "places them in a living accessible context. With a sound basis in theory, the book is also extremely practical and accessible for students, giving scenarios and examples that can be used to reveal the workings and benefits of research.

Industry Reviews

..."Every article had some nugget that challenged or offered a new possibility for my teaching. Each chapter has a bibliography which can resource further exploration into methods and theory found therein. Professors who wish to create classrooms that matter might wish to take a look at this book and let it surprise or energize their teaching." -Teaching Theology and Religion
