Manufacturer Description

In the 10th 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.
