Encourage Students to do Assigned Reading

This tip is adapted from a post by Alice Cassidy, PhD, in Faculty Focus, May 23, 2011.

Help ensure students do the assigned reading by requiring an “entry ticket” to the next class. Give students three index cards each with a different question on the reading. Students must bring the cards to the following class as their “ticket” to get in, and you can use what they’ve written on the cards to help guide the class discussion.
