Summary, etc.:
"The Making Sense series offers clear, concise guides to research and writing for students at all levels of undergraduate study. The volumes in the Making Sense series--covering the humanities courses, social sciences, life sciences, engineering, psychology, religious studies, and education--are intended for students in any undergraduate course with a research and writing component, but are especially appropriate for those at the first-year level. Intended for education students, Making Sense in Education provides detailed information on proper grammar, punctuation, writing styles for a variety of formats, and APA documentation while also addressing education-specific topics such as preparing feedback for students, creating education portfolios, active listening while communicating with parents, curriculum planning, and more. This revised edition includes more education-specific examples throughout, a new appendix with online resources for further reading, and an expanded glossary to help students throughout their academic and teaching careers."-- Provided by publisher.
