Focusing on why things go right The Science of Psychology: An Appreciation View 4th edition helps college students understand and appreciate psychology as a science and as an integrated whole. Informed by psychology students’ data, the 4th edition’s program extends these themes and enhances their pedagogical value by guiding students toward topics they find the most challenging and then offering new learning resources and better methods to help the students master them.

How would you like to see your students’ performance jump by a letter grade or more? When things go right for psychology students…things go right for their instructors! King’s appreciative perspective – treating psych as an integrated science that places function before dysfunction – with its groundbreaking adaptive diagnostic tool helps psychology students know what they know while guiding them to master what they do not know.

Building upon the much-lauded and widely-adopted previous editions, the fourth edition of The Science of Psychology effectively provides a flexible solution for any Introductory Psychology course. Recognizing that today’s students are different from the last generation as is the discipline of psychology, The Science of Psychology 4e draws on thousands of hours of research into student and faculty behavior to provide course material that students will actively engage with, while allowing teachers to maximize the time they spend preparing and teaching the psych. course.

From its adaptive questioning diagnostic tool and personalized study plan that gets psychology students reading and studying more frequently, efficiently and effectively to the readable and lively prose that ensures students leave the course with an accurate and timely understanding of psychology as a science, The Science of Psychology 4e is the right choice for today’s classes, whether they be hybrid, traditional face-to-face, or entirely online.

Regardless of their study habits, preparation, and approach to your course, each of your students will find that The Science of Psychology 4th edition adapts to them individually and provides a road map for success. For your college students that complete the assigned reading and study in measured doses, The Science of Psychology offers a narrative that presents psychology as a science that addresses function as well as dysfunction and where the various subfields are interconnected.  How would fewer withdrawals, drops, and failures impact your course?
