Students take notes on an assigned chapter—one page front and back. In addition to these notes that preview the content, students prepare reflective notes that connect the current reading with other content and generate questions about it. Both sets of notes are turned in and graded. There’s an added incentive: the individual content preview notes are returned to the student on the day of the exam and may be used during it.
