  • If the instructor is re-iterating what textbook said, then classroom time is wasted. Students need to do the reading of textbook and instructors notes the day before class.
  • In an active classroom, the students have already read the text and are busy practicing the new information. The instructor guides them by giving examples or modeling how to use the information.
  • When students are reading their textbook, they might find a detail very interesting and overlook the intent of the reading.
