Overview

About the Product

Learning is an adventure--show your students how it can also be exciting with Psychology: A Journey. In a course where professors are frequently confronted by students who haven't actually read their textbooks, Psychology: A Journey presents psychology in a way that sparks readers' curiosity, insights, imagination, and interest--getting students "hooked" on psychology and eager to read on. Each chapter uses extensive references to Canadian research, relevant Canadian statistics, and highlights issues that will appeal to Canadian students. The book manages to cover not only essential topics at the core of psychology but many others at the cutting edge of current knowledge. This new third edition continues to integrate the proven SQ4R (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Reflect, and Review) active learning system, helping readers grasp and retain major concepts, develop a broad understanding of psychology's diversity, and see for themselves how psychology relates to the challenges of everyday life. Because readers become actively involved with the material, they develop a basic understanding of psychology that they take with them into their future courses and careers. And with a fully integrated technology package that streamlines teaching and motivates learning, Psychology: A Journey offers the most complete teaching and learning solution you will find. NETA Testbank The Nelson Education Teaching Advantage (NETA) program delivers research-based resources that promote student engagement and higher-order thinking and enable the success of Canadian students and educators. This book’s premium testbank is designed to ensure top quality multiple-choice testing by avoiding common errors in question and test construction.
