Image Not Available

The Science of Psychology in Modules offers instructors flexibility in teaching and gives students a manageable framework for course success.

HOW MODULES WORK FOR YOU
*Each chapter is broken down into 2-4 smaller modules, allowing instructors to assign the content they want, in the order they prefer.
*With Connect Psychology, instructors can customize content and course materials to meet the needs of their course. Real-time reports show how well each student is performing on each course segment.
*McGraw-Hill Create provides a simple way for instructors to create customized texts and eBooks tailored to their course.
*Real time reports show how well each student is performing on each course assignment. Instructors can use this feature to spot problem areas before they crop up on an exam.

HOW MODULES WORK FOR YOUR STUDENTS

*The modular format promotes student learning and success by presenting content in small, manageable chunks.
*The “Appreciative View” puts function before dysfunction and treats psychology as an integrated science. Students come to understand the true breadth of the discipline and to apply what they learn to their own daily experiences.
*The adaptive learning system helps students identify what they “know and don’t know” – then guides them to a focus on what they don’t know through interactivities, exercises, and readings.

About the Author:

Laura King did her undergraduate work at Kenyon College, where, an English major, she declared a second major, in psychology, during the second semester of her junior year. She completed her A.B. in English with high honors and distinction and in psychology with distinction in 1986. Laura then did graduate work at Michigan State University and the University of California, Davis, receiving her Ph.D. in personality psychology in 1991.

Laura began her career at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, moving to the University of Missouri, Columbia, in 2001, where she is now a professor. In addition to seminars in the development of character, social psychology, and personality psychology, she has taught undergraduate lecture courses in introductory psychology, introduction to personality psychology, and social psychology. At SMU, she received six different teaching awards, including the “M” award for “sustained excellence” in 1999. At the University of Missouri, she received the Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Research and Creative Activity in 2004.

Her research, which has been funded by the National Institutes for Mental Health, has focused on a variety of topics relevant to the question of what it is that makes for a good life. She has studied goals, life stories, happiness, well-being, and meaning in life. In general, her work reflects an enduring interest in studying what is good and healthy in people. In 2001, her research accomplishments were recognized by a Templeton Prize in positive psychology. Laura’s research (often in collaboration with undergraduate and graduate students) has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, Cognition and Emotion, the Journal of Personality, and other publications . A new paper on the place of regrets in maturity is forthcoming in the American Psychologist.

Currently editor-in-chief of the Journal of Research in Personality, Laura has also served as associate editor of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin and the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, as well as on numerous grant panels. She has edited or co-edited special sections of the Journal of Personality and the American Psychologist. In “real life,” Laura is an accomplished cook and enjoys listening to music (mostly jazz vocalists and singer-songwriters), gardening, and chasing Sam, her 3-year-old son.
