Strengthening Family & Self is completely restructured, with chapters divided into short sections. Each section opens with a reading activity, a vocabulary activity, and key terms. Review questions at the end of every section reinforce content.
Engaging features capture students interest and facilitate learning. Life Sketch, Use What You Learn, Weigh the Facts, Investigate Further, Think More About It, and Link to Your Life boxes appear in every chapter. These challenge students to think critically and apply concepts. Each chapter concludes with a Think It Through case study and suggested activities. Many of these provide differentiated learning opportunities to use with students who respond to various learning styles.
