This is an excellent text which challenges the traditional notion of research as a highbrow, pseudo-scientific activity by intellectuals. It is full of creative and practical ideas for evaluating projects and giving a voice to lots of very clever, but rarely heard, young people.
This is a vital text, that presents a compelling narrative about the importance of evaluation in youth work practice, and as a youth work tool. It is thorough and detailed, but always accessible; never shying away from challenges but meeting them with optimism. It deftly weaves together theory and practice, and feels above all very alive - full of insight, enquiry and experience.
Excellent book for student looking for creative ways to research & evaluate
This book will be useful to a minority of students who need this level of in-depth knowledge about evaluation. For others, the level of detail exceeds what they need for the course they are doing and the role they are in at present.
Useful material for those wishing to progress so added to supplemental reading list
