    Active learning with an innovative text and author-driven tools

    No other author takes such an integrated approach to teaching, learning, and assessment tools. Not only does Sarah Grison incorporate active learning and applications into the text and student learning tools, but she spends just as much time supporting instructors and their goals with her teaching resources. Grison believes that students and teachers succeed best when supported by the best learning tools.

    NEW study unit format and InQuizitive improve reading comprehension

    The NEW study unit format, red Q assessment sections, and InQuizitive online quizzing are all grounded in learning research. Research shows that students comprehend material better when it’s broken up into shorter chunks. That’s why the new study unit format will make a difference for students. Frequent assessment opportunities (in-text and online) will improve students’ reading comprehension and understanding of the material.

    NEW innovative videos help students visualize challenging concepts

    20+ NEW Concept Videos provide brief, animated explanations of the concepts that students find most challenging in each chapter, using relatable everyday scenarios. From the selection of topics through the development of the animations, Sarah Grison guided the creation of each video. Teaching and Demonstration Videos provide additional support for lecture.

    Supports the latest APA guidelines

    APA guidelines are frequently color-coded in the pedagogy throughout the text, placing a strong emphasis on learning fundamentals, application, scientific inquiry, and critical thinking. Every effort has been made to reflect diversity and inclusion throughout the text and teaching support program.
