About the author :

Valerie J. Janesick is a Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of South Florida in Tampa.  She regularly teaches courses in qualitative research methods, program evaluation, and curriculum theory, development, and assessment.  She has written books and articles in these areas.  Her most recent works include: The Assessment Debate: A Reference Handbook (2001); Curriculum Studies: A Reference Handbook (2003); and "Stretching" Exercises for Qualitative Researchers, Second Edition (2004).  Her articles, books, and book chapters tend to discuss the value of aesthetics in the research process.


In this updated version of her innovative book, author Valerie J. Janesick extends her dance and yoga metaphors to strengthen her argument that tapping into one's artistic side-the side that is more creative and less inhibited-is fundamental to realizing one's potential as a qualitative researcher. This Third Edition provides a series of exercises that are both imaginative and immensely practical in helping students to see the artistic side of research.

New and Preven Features

Provides a new focus on regularly practicing the skill of narrative writing while including the voice of the researcher to help improve research writing

Includes four new chapters that continue the emphasis on the importance of writing: The Observation and Writing Habit, The Interview and Writing Habit, The Creative Habit, and The Analysis and Writing Habit

Engages students with 29 exercises (including 12 entirely new ones) for use in the classroom or as homework

Offers a rich array of helpful appendixes that include sample projects and consent forms, tips for dealing with institutional review boards, rules of thumb for conducting interviews, information on the analytical coding process, and more

This is an ideal supplemental or brief core text for graduate-level Qualitative Research Methods in departments of education, communications, sociology, anthropology, business, nursing, medicine, mental health, social work, and psychology.

The Qualitative Report

In this third version of Stretching Exercises for Qualitative Researchers, Janesick (2011) continues to refine and expand upon ways in which qualitative researchers-both new to the field and experienced-can expand and hone a number of skills essential to being an effective researcher. This book combines valuable information, as well as practical exercises, to assist in the development of interviewing, observing, journaling, narrating, analyzing, interpreting, and collaborating skills, which Janesick refers to as "habits of mind "... "Overall, this book does an excellent job of supporting beginning and intermediate qualitative researchers who have questions about many of the stages, processes, and procedures that they will face and who want to sharpen themselves as a research instrument. "— Kristen Chorba

Booknews

Describes 29 exercises that can be used in or out of the classroom to tap into budding researchers' more creative and less inhibited artistic side and help them become more active observers, interviewers, and learners. Some are related to painting, sculpture, poetry, literature, history, philosophy, and dance. Many appendices support the core with sample applications and educational material.

Norman K. Denzin

"This is a valuable work, which has been made even better in revision. In this Second Edition, Valerie Janesick extends the boundaries of qualitative inquiry, taking up IRBs, ethics, writing as inquiry, and new stretching exercises—drawing, quilting, cinema, listservs, and journaling. This book is a gift to instructors and students alike. Use it, teach from it, and stretch your imagination in the process."
