What do pupils actually do in school? There are remarkably few studies that take the pupils’ perspective and reconstruct experience from their point of view within the context of their own cultures and careers. This volume brings together a number of research studies on various aspects of how pupils cope with schools. The theoretical papers consider amongst other issues a developmental model of the growth of pupil strategies based on primary and secondary socialisation; a discussion of ‘interactionist empiricism’ which argues for co-ordinated research between micro and macro perspectives and an extended overview of the general sociological background of work on teacher and pupil strategies. The empirical articles consider a number of themes ranging from strategies employed in answering teacher questions to the power and influence of the pupil peer group in the development of attitudes and behaviour.

This text is the second part of a seven-year ethnography of individual pupils from the ages of four to eleven in an English primary school. It presents a sociological analysis of children coping with the social worlds of home, playground and classroom over the seven years of a primary school career. The study provides holistic insights into the biographies of four children during their primary school years and the case studies give prominence to the voices and perspectives of parents, children and teachers interacting over time. The reader is invited to engage personally with these accounts and is guided, as the book progresses, to an overall analysis of the significance of social relationships and learning processes on the childrens's career trajectories.

Defining Assessment in the widest possible way, ann Filer and Andrew Pollard have produced the most comprehensive ethnographic study of assessment ever attempted. Their case studies cover all of the most important questions concerning assessment. The findings, which are both profound and unsettling, have major implications for educational practice and policy - particularly on how supposedly objective assessment processes depend on their context and are vulnerable to both bias and distortion. In this colorful and reliable work, Filer and Pollard have provided the definitive study of assessment in the 5-11 age range.
