Psychology: Concepts and Applications,2/e, offers a concept-based approach supported by a unique pedagogical framework. Nevid provides a broad view of psychology that includes history, research methods, major theories, and research findings and their contemporary applications in everyday life. The text's successful modular format organizes each chapter into manageable instructional units that help students focus on one topic at a time within the context of a larger chapter structure. Jeffrey Nevid developed a comprehensive learning system for this text derived from his research on memory, learning, and textbook pedagogy. This learning model, which organizes the text's pedagogical features, incorporates four goals that Nevid refers to as the "Four E's of Effective Learning": Engaging Student Interest, Encoding Information, Elaborating Meaning, Evaluating Progress. New!Reality Check boxesencourage students to think critically about popular beliefs and claims related to the field of psychology. Each box presents students with evidence evaluating the statements and concludes with summary of present knowledge and current research about the topic. New!Exploring Psychology featuresprovide greater depth of coverage of contemporary research, controversies in the field, and current issues that relate directly to students' lives. Topics covered include: Driving While Distracted; Binge Drinking: A Dangerous College Pastime; and Emotional Intelligence: How Well Do You Manage Your Emotions? Revised!Module Reviewsappear at the end of each instructional section to provide both a written summary and testing area for students to ensure comprehension before proceeding in the text. This three-part review offers thought-provoking questions that help students sharpen their critical-thinking skills and reflect on how the material relates to their own experiences.
