Flippo fills her book with easy-to-pull-out information, including: "Reflection Activities"; "Try It Out Activities"; organizational strategies; reference and research techniques; specialized study-learning strategies; test-preparation and test-taking strategies, including the Fake Pop Quiz; strategy systems; tried-and-true strategies you may already use that can enhance learning; checklists, analysis sheets, and other teaching/learning aids; Studying and Learning Forms to copy, use, or adapt as you wish.

Plus, the Teaching and Performance Grid, a ready-reference at the beginning of the book, is especially helpful for both teaching and assessment.
