Review quote

'I am delighted to see this new edition. As well as the wealth of knowledge provided in earlier versions, new and welcome additions address emerging priorities for university education courses and invite the reader's active participation. It will be at the top of my department's reading lists!' - Dr Shereen Benjamin, Senior Lecturer in Primary Education The University of Edinburgh 'A highly appropriate text for all education students, the inclusion/analysis of tutors' comments alongside the existing Top Tips enhances the advice given. The close analysis of student work, identification of both effective and ineffective features and the detailed information regarding effective searches are amongst the many highlights' - Mike Hickman, Head of Subject, Initial Teacher Education York St John University This down-to-earth and accessible guide offers practical and comprehensive advice on how to write in an academic way about education. Dominic Wyse explains key concepts such as the crucial importance of peer review and the correct way to reference media articles. Throughout the emphasis is on encouraging students to develop their own academic voice. -- Katy Parnell Dyslexia Review
