This work prepares teachers, college students, and higher education faculty to conduct various types of presentations, including workshops and teacher inservice trainings; poster sessions; panel discussions; roundtables; research forums; and technology-supported presentations. Making effective presentations to fellow professionals at conferences is an important contribution for educators at all levels, from basic through higher education. The book takes the approach of a "paper mentor" that guides the reader through the use of templates, specific examples, and a wide range of on-line resources.
