The volumes in the MakingSense series--covering the humanities courses, socialsciences, 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, MakingSense 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."--
