Guiding students from understanding to application, Psychology: A Framework for Everyday Thinking provides an accessible and personalized framework upon which they can build their knowledge and use of the science of psychology.
This 14 chapter text teaches students how to critically evaluate psychological claims that they experience in everyday life through the use of the six flags of scientific thinking. Students are then given the opportunity to apply their critical thinking skills to a variety of real world situations with the ¿What Do YOU Think?,¿ ¿MythConceptions,¿ and ¿Factoids¿ and ¿Fictoids¿ features. Students have ample opportunity to assess their knowledge of the chapter content. Each major section concludes with a Quiz that includes both true/false questions and a MyPsychLab resource with accompanying question. The end-of-chapter study guide (¿Your Complete Review System¿) contains section summaries and comprehensive tests of the chapter content, visual program, and MyPsychLab resources, all of which is tied to the numbered learning objectives. It also contains a summary of the scientific thinking skills introduced in the chapter and offers two critical-thinking essay questions for students to answer. Numbered learning objectives, which are called out in the narrative and in the end-of-chapter review material, help highlight key concepts and topics for students.
