The Cengage Learning DISCOVERY SERIES: HUMAN SEXUALITY is designed to deliver traditional course content in an innovative "hybrid" learning format—instruction presented in a printed handbook paired with integrated online applications and assessments. The program promotes measurable mastery of core course learning objectives by guiding students' active engagement with content delivered through the book, images, video, simulations, and assessments. This contemporary approach to learning seamlessly integrates text and technology, enabling students to easily move from the book's instruction to its online applications for a deeper, lasting understanding of the core psychological concepts, and for assessments that reliably track students' progress and performance.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I think the most useful piece is the end of chapter resource to enhance learning through various online options. That will allow for further internalization and ways to learn (visual/auditorial/tactile)."Jennifer Noble, PhD, Pasadena City College

"It is a unique and user-friendly approach to learning about the diversity of human sexuality. [...] The self-assessments are unique - something I have not seen in other textbooks."Terry Dennison, University of Oklahoma

"[T]his product is above average in comparison to the other materials on the marketplace. Plus, the material is laid out in such a way that the learners are always engaged."Lisa Alastuey, University of Houston

"I would describe this package as a "textbook plus". It is a very innovative approach that is more than a textbook - it is an integrated course package that students will find very engaging."Linda Bajdo, Macomb Community College
