There is a good balance: the authors do not spend so long focusing on research methodology that you lose all sense of why they were doing it in the first place, nor do they focus entirely on case studies. But there is a real passion for the involvement of teachers taking responsibility for their own professional development and having the chance to see themselves as researchers, and this shines through the description of the project that formed the basis for the book.
There are also plenty of ideas for those seeking to use the book to improve talk for learning in their own school/classroom. The main areas of focus are the development of questioning, drawing on children's prior experience, interactive teaching, supporting children to make connections in their learning and scaffolding learning to support growing independence.
Well worth a read if this is an area of interest.
