Qualitative Research for Senior High School

This book is designed to lay down the key points of learning on research. Certainly, these cannot exhaustively cover all themes and aspects of research and research work, but the authors hope the readers—both students and faculty—are informed and engaged enough by this volume to seek further involvement in research.

The authors wish to offer a parsimonious articulation of the basics of research through this book of Qualitative Research (for Practical Research 1).

With the classroom setting in mind, we set the thematic flow and design of the chapters of these books to follow the outline of competencies set in the Department of Education’s curriculum guides for the Practical Research subject.
