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.
