    Date: Jul 27, 2015

    Date: Jul 27, 2015

  • Introduction to Psychology

    Faculty reviewed Adopted

    Author(s): Charles Stangor
    Date: Jul 27, 2015

    Description: This textbook includes learning objectives, key takeaways, exercises and critical thinking activities, and a marginal glossary of key terms. In short, I think that this book will provide a useful and productive synthesis between your goals and the goals of your students. I have tried to focus on the forest rather than the trees and to bring psychology to life—in ways that really matter—for the students. At the same time, the book maintains content and conceptual rigor, with a strong focus o...[more]

    Date: Jul 27, 2015

    Description: Have you ever had trouble teaching the various topics of social psychology and fitting them together to form a coherent field? Dr. Stangor felt like he was presenting a laundry list of ideas, research studies, and phenomena, rather than an integrated set of principles and knowledge.

It was then that he realized a fresh approac...[more]
