The resource may be used for classroom work. Since the handbook deals with a specific topic, the entire resource or its individual sections may be used both for general educational purposes as well as special assignments. For instance, the lecturer may assign selected excerpts to students for reading and presenting to class, writing summaries, commenting on the teaching methods proposed in the resource, and developing new methodologies. Some information presented in the bullet form, so students may be asked to develop further reasoning and elaborate on the statements given in the resource. Testing the students' knowledge, the lecturer may select a portion of text and obscure every 10th word in it, asking the student to provide the missing word.
