Athletic training students typically expect instructors to assign textbook readings and use classroom lectures to disseminate information. They also expect instructors to assess knowledge using traditional testing methods, such as written and/or oral-practical examinations, research papers, lab assignments, etc. Nontraditional teaching techniques, such as games, puzzles, and computer-based learning activities, appear to be a viable option to promote student interest in reading and learning. The purpose of this report is to assist instructors in the design and utilization of crossword puzzles as a learning and assessment tool in the athletic training education classroom.
