First Day of Class

You can help your students by stressing the importance of the textbook!

Did you know that YOU are the most influential factor in your students’ decision to use course materials? If you expect your students to use the textbook, tell them on the first day of class. They’ll be better prepared for lectures, have a more thorough understanding of concepts, and perform better on quizzes and tests.

Start your course off right!
