LEARNING PATH:

Why am I here? Polling Activity. At the start of each chapter, students complete a short activity written specifically to get them engaged in the material prior to the reading. The polling questions get students to begin thinking in a meaningful way about the real-life uses of the concepts and issues they will cover in the chapter.

Chapter reading. The full text is available through the dynamic MindTap Reader, allowing students an enhanced reading experience with notes and highlights that feed directly to custom study guides in the StudyHub MindApp.

Chapter Quiz. A quiz with multiple-choice questions immediately follows the chapter reading, allowing students to measure their understanding and progress.

Practice Activity. Students will answer a series of multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, and matching questions aimed at getting them to think critically about key concepts discussed within each chapter.

Case Vignette. Additional case studies give students the opportunity to read about more real-life situations and practice the sort of critical thinking skills needed to succeed in a challenging field.

Video Activity. Students view professional interviews and archival news footage as they progress through the course. Each videos asks students to answer embedded questions as they watch each video, in order to understand the broader social context to the chapter content.

Reflection Activity. At the conclusion of each chapter’s content, students are asked to apply concepts directly to their life and future career in the helping professions.

MindTap Instructors Speak on Personalization - Diane

Instructor Diane Carter from the University of Idaho talks about how MindTap helps her personalize her course.

"A program like MindTap helps me with time management because everything is in one place. So I
go through all the planning for a course using MindTap and I get it all there, it’s ready to go and
all, I have everything set up so everything is graded automatically so I can use my time during the semester to engage with students and I don’t have to waste my time grading papers."

"I'm convinced that the higher course ratings and grades were, in large part, a result of students’ engagement. It was an unmitigated success."

"Almost across the board, students using MindTap improved on the main learning objectives of the class ...I've never seen any results like this."

"One of the best features of analytics is being able to identify those students that are at risk very early on in an academic course and to provide them with the support and tools that they need… and help those students overcome those challenges and help them become successful."

"…having the flexibility of doing my assignment whenever and however I want makes it a lot easier for me."

"MindTap puts practice questions in a format that works well for me."
