Trusted author team.  Exploring Psychology in Modules  offers quality writing and resources that bring results for instructors and their students. The supplements and media are author-driven and integrated with the textbook.  The highly-regarded test bank is carefully revised to reflect the new content and research in the textbook and includes nearly 10,000 questions, providing ample options for each instructor.

Flexible modular organization.  This text offers the content organized in 45, student-friendly modules, assignable in any sequence and brief enough to be read in one sitting. Students digest material better when they process it in smaller chunks—as spaced rather than massed practice—and instructors often appreciate the flexibility of assigning any modules in any order.

Immersive Learning Activities: How Would You Know? (in LaunchPad)
Created by DeWall and Myers, these online activities show students how our understanding of psychology emerges from investigating fascinating research questions.  Each activity begins with such a question, with students taking on the role of researcher, and making key decisions about how to set up a research study along the way.   Working through these immersive activities, students fully engage with research methods and analysis, developing scientific literacy and critical thinking skills in the process.  Some topics include: How Would You Know if Sleep Deprivation Affects Academic Performance?  How Would You Know if People Can Learn to Reduce Anxiety?  How Would You Know if Schizophrenia Is Inherited?

Built to solve key challenges in the course, LaunchPad gives students everything they need to prepare for class and exams, while giving instructors everything they need to quickly set up a course, shape the content to their syllabus, craft presentations and lectures, assign and assess homework, and guide the progress of individual students and the class as a whole.
