Why Things Go Right.The Science of Psychology: An Appreciative View by Laura King (University of Missouri at Columbia) is the first text to bring a truly appreciative view of psychology-as a science and for exploring behavior-to introductory students. It is built around the idea that students must study the discipline of psychology as a whole, that the sub-disciplines are intricately connected, and that human behavior is best understood by exploring its functioning state in addition to its potential dysfunctions. For example, imagine that you have been asked to create a science of "watchology." You have two watches that both have had the unfortunate "trauma" of being left in the pocket of someone's jeans through the washer and dryer. One watch has suffered the worst possible fate-it no longer tells time. The other has emerged from the traumatic event still ticking. Which watch would you use to develop your new science of watchology? Clearly, the working watch will help you understand watches better than the broken one. What does watchology have to do with psychology? Quite simply, in psychology as in watchology, it makes sense to start with what works: to gain a general understanding of human behavior and then apply that knowledge to those who have emerged from life's experiences in dysfunction. What if... - you could recreate the 1-on-1 experience of working through difficult concepts in office hours with every one of your students without having to invest any office hour time to do so? - you could see at a glance how well each of your students (and sections) was performing in each segment of your course? - you had all of the assignments and resources for your course pre-organized by learning objective and with point-and-click flexibility? - every student had 24-7 access to a resource that would help them identify their weak areas and provide them with a personalized plan for improvement? At McGraw-Hill, we have been asking a lot of these questions and many more for some time now. We did not stop at simply asking questions either. We visited with faculty like you across the country and also observed you doing what you do to prepare and deliver your courses. We watched students as they worked through assignments and studied for exams. The result of these thousands of hours of research and development isConnect Psychology, the new learning management tool that bolsters student performance at the same time it makes instructors' lives easier and more efficient.
