Call Out Sections

There are two types of call out section to look out for within each chapter, which will support your learning in different ways. They are each highlighted by a different banner, detailed below.

​Throughout the textbook, you will see this Spotlight Stories banner, which indicates sections that contain interviews from everyday people who are impacted by the topics you are learning about.  There will be one in every chapter along with 3-5 discussion questions to help you reflect and deepen your understanding of the content.


You will also see this banner, which introduces real-world examples of the topics you are learning about. The Reality Check sections will usually provide an example or outside source for you to visit, along with a few questions to help test your understanding. 


Interactive Diagrams

Throughout the book  you may come across interactive diagrams. These will have interactive circles on them, which will appear when you hover over the image with your mouse. Hovering over the circles themselves will cause a definition, video, photo, or article to pop up, to enhance your understanding of the topic.​


In-Chapter Feedback

Above is a picture of the Optional Feedback Survey at the end of each chapter. ​​​

​We would love to hear your feedback about the text! We take every comment into consideration when thinking about how to make the text better, and regularly release updates based on what we hear from you.

At the end of every chapter, there is a survey like the one pictured to the right that you can fill out to ask questions, or report any issues. This survey is entirely optional and the responses are sent to Top Hat, not your professor.
