Hallmark Features:

 

Each chapter in Emergency Responder begins–with the same four elements.

  • Comprehensive Learning Objectives provide a solid foundation for the concepts and skills you are expected to learn and perform.
  • A list of Key Terms introduce new vocabulary essential to your overall understanding of the content.
  • An Introduction sets the stage for the instructional narrative that follows.
  • The Emergency features offer scenarios that place you at the scene of a realistic emergency and ask you to think about what you might feel, think, say, and do as you read the text and apply your new found knowledge.

Each chapter ends–with a comprehensive review of concepts and skills.

  • Each chapter concludes with a The Hand-Off feature which brings closure to the opening scenario, The Emergency, in a way that applies all you’ve learned in the chapter.
  • Chapter Review includes the Chapter Summary, a concise review of the chapter’s key points, and a Quick Quiz, which offers multiple-choice questions that help test how well you understand the key concepts and information covered in the chapter.

Helpful study aids are offered–within the chapter as well.

  • Quick Checks intersperse open-ended questions throughout the text. The Quick Check will help you stop, think, and apply the information you’ve just read.
  • Learning Objectives are positioned in the margins right beside the corresponding sections of the chapter, and Key Terms and definitions are placed where each one is first introduced and discussed.
  • An Instructor’s Resource CD contains tools to customize a training program specifically for your needs.
  • Students can access online course material as an adjunct to textbook learning.
