Overview

For courses in Introductory Psychology

The most learner-centered and assessment-driven text available
Throughout Psychology, Fifth Edition, Saundra Ciccarelli and J. Noland White employ a learner-centered, assessment-driven approach that maximizes student engagement, and helps educators keep students on track. The authors draw students into the discipline by showing how psychology relates to their own lives. Clear learning objectives, based on the recommended APA undergraduate learning outcomes, guide students through the material. And assessment tied to these learning objectives lets students check their understanding, while allowing instructors to monitor class progress and intervene when necessary to bolster student performance.

Available to package with Psychology, Fifth Edition, MyPsychLab® is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. MyPsychLab is ideal for courses requiring robust assessments.

Psychology, Fifth Edition is also available via REVEL™, an interactive learning environment that replaces the print textbook, enabling students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience. REVEL is ideal for courses where student engagement and mobile access are important.

Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyLab™ & Mastering™ does not come packaged with this content.
