Editorial Reviews

"The breadth and depth of this book are perfect for introductory courses in education." --Allan MacKinnon, Simon Fraser University

"The clear and straightforward manner of this text allows it to be accessible for students in my class who arrive with an array of writing abilities and knowledge about writing. [...] The briefness of the content makes it short, sweet, and to the point." --Allison Dow, Brock University

"This book covers a very wide range of topics that education students encounter, not just as students, but also into their career [...] The book is well-organized, and easy to navigate. There is a good balance between scope and degree of detail, making this a useful resource for students." --Wendy Bokhorst-Heng, Crandall University
