About this title:
Synopsis:
In the 10 th edition of Psychology in Action, Author Karen Huffman redefines and refocuses her message of "active learning". This is reflected as "Student Engagement through Active Participation". All in-text pedagogy (including the new MythBuster box) are subsumed under this big category making it easier for reps to concretely demonstrate this theme.
