Activating Prior Knowledge, Improving Writing, Assessing Student Performances, Building Students’ Notemaking Skills, and Promoting Cooperation are just a few of the section titles that speak directly to the learning needs of my students. In fact, there isn’t a section in this book that doesn’t address the learning needs of my students.
