Laura King’s The Science of Psychology: An Appreciation View 4th edition (PDF) helps psych. students understand and appreciate psychology as a social science and as an integrated whole. Informed by college students data, the 4th edition’s program extends these themes and enhances their pedagogical value by guiding college students toward topics they find the most challenging and then offering new learning resources and better methods to help the students master them.
Building upon the much-lauded and widely-adopted previous editions, the 4th edition of The Science of Psychology effectively provides a flexible solution for any Introductory Psychology course. Recognizing that today’s students are different from the last generation as is the discipline of psychology, The Science of Psychology 4th ed. draws on thousands of hours of research into student and faculty behavior to provide course material that students will actively engage with, while allowing teachers to maximize the time they spend preparing and teaching the psych. course.
How would you like to see your students’ performance jump by a letter grade or more? When things go right for psychology students…things go right for their instructors! King’s appreciative perspective – treating psych as an integrated science that places function before dysfunction – with its groundbreaking adaptive diagnostic tool helps psychology students know what they know while guiding them to master what they do not know.
From its adaptive questioning diagnostic tool and personalized study plan that gets psychology students reading and studying more frequently, efficiently and effectively to the readable and lively prose that ensures students leave the course with an accurate and timely understanding of psychology as a science, King’s The Science of Psychology 4th edition is the right choice for today’s classes, whether they be traditional, hybrid, face-to-face, or online.
