Study/Prep Cards:these Study Cards are come bound in to each new book. There is 1 Study Card for each chapter. They do not regurgitate information from the text, which allows students to use the card passively. Instead, the front of the card asks the student to write what he/she recalls from each of the learning objectives in the chapter. After completing this step, the student turns to the back to review the learning objectives broken down into bulleted lists, and then completes fill-in-the-blank application questions to test their knowledge beyond basic comprehension. The answers to these application questions are available on the bottom of the card (upside down). The point of these cards is to create useful exercises that actually help students LEARN and remember, as opposed to passively reading (or not reading) the cards.
