I review the 2012 book, Research and Social Change: A Relational Constructionist Approach, by Sheila McNamee and Dian Marie Hosking concentrating on two ideas critical to constructionist inquiry. I emphasize and discuss “everyday-ness” (p. 4) in relation to studying one’s own practice as well as the notion of “engaged unfolding” (p. 45) in relation to methodological decision-making.
