How Can I Effectively Use Class Preparation Assignments?

Class preparation assignments, or CPAs, enable you to use your class time more effectively and move students toward higher levels of learning. This program prepares you to create class preparation assignments that will transform the classroom experience for you and your students.

Optimize learning in your courses with CPAs

Class preparation assignments, or CPAs, are assignments that students complete before class so that they come to class ready to wrestle with course material.

They enable you to use your class time more effectively and to actually move students toward higher levels of learning.

It is critical, however, to craft these assignments carefully so that they are the right level of difficulty and so that they support what you want to do with your class time.

You need to make sure students present independent answers, even if they arrive at those answers by working with their peers (which is a good thing!).

You also need to know how to manage CPAs so that grading them doesn’t monopolize your time, and how to incorporate them into exams so that students understand their value.

None of this is top secret. In fact, you can learn it all when you watch How Can I Effectively Use Class Preparation Assignments?, a Magna 20-Minute Mentor with Robert Gillette, Ph.D., and Lynn Gillette, Ph.D.

Gillette and Gillette (they are brothers) outline the key distinctions between homework and class preparation assignments.

Then they offer insights into how to use the latter to optimize learning in your courses.
