See concepts brought to life

Dynamic, embedded video

As you read through your eText you will encounter embedded videos that use real classroom footage to illustrate or expand on key chapter concepts. In this way, abstract or difficult-to-understand concepts are brought to life. You can read about a concept and then see it demonstrated with real teachers and students, helping you better understand course content.

Gauge your understanding

Interactive Assessments

Throughout your eText you will be presented with opportunities to check your understanding of key concepts through multiple-choice assessments. You will receive immediate feedback to guide your learning, help you focus on the concepts that require the most attention, and ensure you master key learning outcomes.
