  • NEW STUDY UNIT FORMAT AND INQUIZITIVE IMPROVE READING COMPREHENSION Research shows that students comprehend material better when it’s broken up into shorter chunks.

Frequent assessment opportunities (in-text and online) will improve students’ reading comprehension and understanding of the material.
  • NEW INNOVATIVE VIDEOS HELP STUDENTS VISUALIZE CHALLENGING CONCEPTS Over 20 NEW Concept Videos provide brief, animated explanations of the concepts that students find most challenging in each chapter, using relatable everyday scenarios. Sarah Grison guided the creation of each video, from the selection of topics through the development of the animations. Teaching and Demonstration Videos provide additional support for class planning, activities, and lectures.
