Suf ficient examples are given to illustrate the key concepts discussed in each chapter. One outstanding feature of the book is that it constantly refers to an identified research topic introduced in Chapter 1 as the rest of the key concepts in the succeeding chapters are being developed.
The development of the chapters adheres to the accepted procedures in conducting quantitative research so that readers are guided on every step of the way. Thus, the conceptual flow of the chapters are as follows:
Introduction to research
Identifying a topic and framing the research question
Review of the related literature and crafting of theconceptual framework
Conceptualizing the research design and collecting data
Analyzing the collected data
Reporting and writing the results
With this conceptual flow, readers can be directed, guided, and coached on how to proceed with the inquiry process. Given this approach, it is hoped that students will see that engaging in research can be broken down into doable steps.
Dr. Ernesto Y. Sibal was one of the few Filipinos in academic publishing who can irrefutably lay claim to these three titles—Patriot, Pioneer and Innovator. A staunch patriot, Dr. Sibal fiercely advocated the vision of designating Filipino-authored books for young Filipino learners. This vision was enabled by the establishment of Alemar’s Bookstore in 1958, and through the foresight and drive of Alegria Rodriguez, who shared in the vision of her husband, she helped galvanize then fledgling Alemar's Bookstore as the place to go for textbooks and school needs, propelling it to become the first established bookstore chain in the country.
