Item Type: Book Chapter or Section

This chapter explores the genesis of an ESRC project. It provides an extended theoretical commentary on the literature and methodology that underpinned a pilot project in which children and teachers considered the relationship between the school curriculum and children's local community experience. It shows how a theoretical framework for a successful research bid was developed through consideration of perspectives from a number of disciplines. This chapter makes a contribution to an interdisciplinary body of literature that focuses on research with children. It focuses on ethical issues in researching with children in a school setting. Unusually, children's voices are used to illuminate the discussion and to develop prerequisites for children's participation. I contributed throughout the chapter and led on the theoretical and methodological framing of the chapter.
