Sandra Hockenbury and new coauthor Susan Nolan’s remarkable textbook is grounded in the belief that all kinds of students can develop a real understanding of psychology and lasting scientific literacy. The authors act on that belief by using relatable personal stories to communicate the concepts of psychological science (and the process of science itself), and by presenting important research in a clear not oversimplified way. Hockenbury and Nolan also take full advantage of online learning, creating activities in LaunchPad that have students thinking about psychology as scientists do. New co-author, Susan Nolan of Seton Hall University was recently designated a Master Teacher by the Society for Teaching Psychology. She regularly gives talks about incorporating scientific literacy into the introductory course and across the psychology curriculum.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

In this fresh new offering to the Intro Psychology course, authors John Cacioppo and Laura Freberg portray psychology as being an integrative science in two ways. First, they have written a text that reflects psychology’s rightful place as a hub science that draws from and is cited by research in many other fields. Second, this text presents psychology as a unified science that seeks a complete understanding of the human mind, rather than as a loosely organized set of autonomous subspecialties. As psychology moves rapidly toward maturity as an integrative, multidisciplinary field, the introductory course offers an opportunity to teach all of psychology in one place and at one time. This text reflects that evolution--and the authors’ excitement about it.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Following her distinguished earlier career as a concert pianist and later as a music theorist, Jeanne Bamberger conducted countless case studies analysing musical development and creativity the results of which were published in important scientific journals. Discovering musical mind draws together in one source these classic studies, offering the chance to revisit and reconsider some of her conclusions. Reviewing the data in light of current theories of cognitive development, she discusses how some of the conclusions she drew stand up to scrutiny, whilst in other cases, anomalies turn out to have greater significance than expected. The book is a collection of Bamberger's papers from 1975 to 2011. It includes her first study of Beethoven's original fingerings, her beginning work with children's invented notations, close observations and analysis of children in the Laboratory for Making Things, studies of musically gifted children, and the emergent musical development of students in elementary-secondary school and university undergraduate and graduate studies. The observations and research lead to the development of an interactive, computer-based music environment that uses her pragmatic theory of musical development as the basis for a project-oriented program for teaching and learning. Unlike other collections, the book is both interdisciplinary and strongly practical. It brings together and integrates Bamberger's background in music theory, research in music perception and music education, performance, cognitive development, artificial intelligence, and procedural music composition. Her multi-faceted approach to music theory and music pedagogy is guided throughout by her commitment to an understanding and respect for an individual's natural, creative musical intelligence. This natural competence becomes the formative ground on which to help people of all ages build an ever growing understanding and engagement with the evolving structures of the world's music. Bringing together a body of research currently scattered across a range of journals, or simply no longer available, the book will make fascinating reading for those in the fields of musical developmental and educational psychology.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Discovering the Scientist Within is the only book on the market that teaches students about research methods using a case study approach. All the design-focused chapters present students with a single study described from start to finish. The chapter starts by asking students to consider a scenario and then walks them through the steps of the study: formulating a research question, performing a literature review, constructing a data collection method, considering ethics, refining the method, gathering data, understanding the statistical results, and reporting the results in APA style. Students come away with a practical understanding of the research process and useful practice in the basic steps that comprise all studies. The book also has excellent pedagogy, starting with clear Learning Outcomes at the beginning of each chapter, "Your Turn" assessments as the end of each section, and end-of-chapter Review Questions and Applying What You've Learned activities. As part of their class projects, students are often asked to run some statistics and write in APA style. This text has ample support for both, including Appendices on both topics, as well as in-chapter material modeling writing and reporting in APA style. Best of all, the book comes integrated with new Research in Action activities from the same author team. These activities extend the core mission of the book by putting students in the role of a researcher and simulating the kinds of decisions they would face in conceptualizing and executing a study. Each chapter includes an activity (a few chapters have more than one), and the activities are called out in the chapter. The new edition features coverage of "fake news," as well as "Our Research Plan at a Glance," a summary of the study featured in each chapter. The book is also available in a LaunchPad course for the first time. Students will have access to the full eBook, the LearningCurve adaptive quizzing system, the Research in Action activities, and other resources. This book also comes with an unprecedented set of instructor supplements, many of them prepared by the authors themselves. These include a full instructor's manual, including supplemental examples for each chapter, suggestions for in-class activities and demonstrations, lab/group project ideas, a feature designed to enhance psychological/information literacy, and suggestions for using end of chapter materials. Instructors also get access to unique PowerPoint slide decks that incorporate the same active learning and hands-on approach as the textbook. Chapter PowerPoint slides include additional examples, discussion questions, demonstrations and activities built right into the presentation to help bring the material to life. For design chapters, they provide two sets of PowerPoint slides: one set that incorporates the chapter's research question and a more traditional set that focuses on key concepts.
