Each chapter contains three lesson plans addressing the threshold concept, one for each of the three fun instructional techniques. Each lesson plan begins with the learning objective. It then lists the procedure, which includes the audience, supplies, and time needed for the lesson. Assessment opportunities are provided, with formative assessment strategies as well as summative assessments, including sample rubrics to apply to a range of student work. Each lesson plan ends with a section on modifications and accommodations that provide discussion of the lesson if necessary and additional ideas on how to adapt the lesson for different student populations"--"@en ;
