While I cannot speak to the text/MindTap you are using, I can speak to using Hybrid as your method of delivery. In fact, I did a webinar on how to differentiate between delivery methods (from February 2018). You are welcome to view and use that!
If you have HY-specific questions, I'm happy to assist with those.

I have extensive experience in teaching online and hybrid courses. Here are a few tips to get you started:

I have a lot of experience teaching online courses, and with Cengage texts with CengageNOW. Hybrid courses, as far as I understand, are similar to online courses in terms of students learning the materials on their own. Towards this, what I have felt works well is to create a very clear roadmap for each week so that students know exactly what is expected of them. CengageNOW is helpful as students can use the "Study tools" that are part of this platform (quizzes, videos, etc.) as supplementary materials to master the course content. This can be assigned as separate from regular homework assignments (with points) to ensure that students use them. You can also create your own self-test review quizzes so that students can self-assess as they proceed through the learning materials.
So, overall, I think setting students' expectations and providing plenty of learning materials is key to having a successful hybrid/online class.

While I don't teach taxation, I do use MindTap. What we have learned is that any activities you can assigned to force students to read the text before coming into your class helps. We use the quizzes and other activities to reinforce what was covered in class. For example, they may read the text about sharecropping and complete the activity using a primary source to reinforce it.
Hope that helps.
