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.
