    Abstract

    MYBURGH, Chris  and  POGGENPOEL, Marie. Meta-synthesis on learners' experience of aggression in secondary schools in South Africa. S. Afr. j. educ. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.4, pp. 445-460. ISSN 0256-0100.

    This meta-synthesis is on research conducted by different researchers in a team research project on learners'experience of aggression in secondary schools in South Africa. The objective was to obtain a broader understanding of their experience of aggression in different contexts in South Africa, as well as possible ways to assist learners to address the experienced aggression. Eleven completed research projects were purposively sampled. Data were collected utilising the following headings: objectives, sampling, research design, research method, and research results, and guidelines. At the end of the meta-synthesis process the results are described, with supporting direct quotations from participants and a literature control. Guidelines for learners to cope with aggression are described.

    Keywords : aggression; experience; meta-synthesis; secondary schools.
