  • Headnotes provide background information.
  • Pre-reading and post-reading questions foster critical thinking and provide opportunities for group work and close reading.
  • Connecting questions end each chapter and ask students to compare selections.
  • Suggestions for further research and bibliographies for further reading encourage students to continue exploring issues.
