Carrington, Suzanne B., Bland, Derek C., & Brady, Kate (2009) Training young people as researchers to investigate engagement and disengagement in the middle years. International Journal of Inclusive Education, pp. 1-14.
This paper reports on the first stage of a study that used Young People as Researchers to investigate the phenomenon of middle-year student engagement and disengagement. The first stage of the study focused on a two-day workshop that provided training for students and teachers from four secondary schools in conducting research in their schools. An overview of the three stages is presented and the workshop procedures and example activities for Stage 1 of the Young People as Researchers model are described. Further to this, the paper reports on data collected in the workshop to address the research question: How do middleyear students describe engagement and disengagement?
