Learning Objectives and Standards. Students read the learning objectives and applicable standards that will be covered in the chapter.

Video or Image Case. Students watch a video or view an image, and then answer the two open-ended focus questions to start engagement with the chapter, activate relevant prior knowledge, and begin to build foundational understanding of the chapter content.

eBook Chapter. Students read the associated eBook chapter to learn about relevant concepts and access greater context and depth on key concepts.

Quiz: Did You Get it? Students take a 15-question reading comprehension quiz, assessing them at the remembering and understanding levels of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy. Students receive instant feedback on their work and can link back to the eBook to areas to re-read when they answer incorrectly.

Scenario. Students learn to apply key concepts from the reading to their teaching practice. Students read a grade-level scenario on a typical teaching and learning situation, create and upload an artifact in response to the focus assignment, and evaluate their response, moving them to the highest levels of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy. All artifacts are saved automatically to the student’s free eportfolio.

Quiz: Wrapping It Up. Students take a final 10-question reading comprehension quiz to ensure that they know and remember the major concepts covered in the chapter and activities.
