9780071221641: Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behavior

We Listened. You Want Science. You Want a Modern Framework. You Want an Easy Prep. You Want Passer/Smith.

WE LISTENED: During the development of Passer/Smith, McGraw-Hill employees observed more than 150 hours of Introductory Psychology classes, hosted three national symposia, and commissioned and read over 200 reviews. From that, WE LEARNED:

· You want to demonstrate to your students that Psychology is a science. Passer’s Research Close-Ups in each chapter provide an inside look at research studies in a scientific journal format.

· You want a framework that will help students tie all of the disparate concepts together and see the field of psychology in a modern way. Passer/Smith’s Levels of Analysis feature does just that, by consistently showing the biological, psychological, and environmental causes of behavior.

· You want all of your resources in one place so you can quickly and easily prep for each lecture. McGraw-Hill's PrepCenter provides all of our instructor resources in an easy-to-use, online site.

The bottom line is that if you use Passer/Smith, you’ll teach a dynamic, modern course with an organizing framework that reflects psychology as a science and that is easier to prep for than your present course.
