Modules: The Science of Psychology by Laura A. King

Book Description

The Science of Psychology in Modules offers instructors flexibility in teaching and gives students a manageable framework for course success. HOW MODULES WORK FOR YOU *Each chapter is broken down into 2-4 smaller modules, allowing instructors to assign the content they want, in the order they prefer. *With Connect Psychology, instructors can customize content and course materials to meet the needs of their course. Real-time reports show how well each student is performing on each course segment. *McGraw-Hill Create provides a simple way for instructors to create customized texts and eBooks tailored to their course. *Real time reports show how well each student is performing on each course assignment. Instructors can use this feature to spot problem areas before they crop up on an exam. HOW MODULES WORK FOR YOUR STUDENTS *The modular format promotes student learning and success by presenting content in small, manageable chunks. *The "Appreciative View" puts function before dysfunction and treats psychology as an integrated science. Students come to understand the true breadth of the discipline and to apply what they learn to their own daily experiences. *The adaptive learning system helps students identify what they "know and don't know" -- then guides them to a focus on what they don't know through interactivities, exercises, and readings.
