For courses in Introductory Psychology

Help students become scientifically literate.
Psychological Science: Modeling Scientific Literacy helps students view psychology as a practical, modern science—and gives them the tools to better understand our world. Throughout the second edition, authors Mark Krause and Daniel Corts continue to emphasize scientific literacy: the ability not only to define scientific terminology, but also to understand how it functions, to evaluate it critically, and to apply it to personal and societal matters. In addition to helping students master key course objectives, learning how to think scientifically will enable students to categorize the overwhelming amount of information they encounter, as well as ignite their interest in psychological science.

Psychological Science: Modeling Scientific Literacy, Second Edition is also available via REVEL™, an immersive learning experience designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn.

About the Author:

Dr. Mark Krause received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Central Washington University, and his PhD at the University of Tennessee in 2000. He completed a postdoctoral appointment at the University of Texas at Austin where he studied classical conditioning of sexual behavior in birds. Following this, Krause accepted a research fellowship through the National Institute of Aging to conduct research on cognitive neuroscience at Oregon Health and Sciences University. He has conducted research and published on pointing and communication in chimpanzees, predatory behavior in snakes, the behavioral and evolutionary basis of conditioned sexual behavior, and the influence of testosterone on cognition and brain function. Krause began his teaching career as a doctoral candidate and continued to pursue this passion even during research appointments. His teaching includes courses in general psychology, learning and memory, and behavioral neuroscience. Krause is currently a professor of psychology at Southern Oregon University, where his focus is on teaching, writing, and supervising student research. His spare time is spent with his family, cycling, reading, and enjoying Oregon’s outdoors.

Dr. Daniel Corts discovered psychology at Belmont University where he received his B.S. He completed a PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Tennessee in 1999 and then a post-doctoral position at Furman University for one year where he focused on the teaching of psychology. He is now professor of psychology at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL where he has taught for over 15 years. His research interests in cognition have lead to publications on language, gesture, and memory, and he has also published in the area of college student development. Corts is increasingly involved in applied work, developing programming and assessments related to k-12 educational programming and teacher preparation. Corts is enthusiastic about getting students involved in research and has supervised or coauthored over 100 conference presentations with undergraduates. Corts has served as the local Psi Chi advisor for a dozen years and has served on the Board of Directors for several years, including his current term as President. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his two children, traveling, camping, and cooking.
