9780205255863: Psychological Science: Modeling Scientific Literacy (paperback)

Helping 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 their world.

 

Organized around a scientific literacy model, the text’s content and features encourage scientific inquiry, prompting students to ask a series of scientific-minded questions about each topic. All aspects of the book–the topics covered, learning objectives, quizzes, even the modular format–have been developed to enable students to categorize the overwhelming amount of information they encounter, and to ignite their interest in psychological science.

 

To ensure that scientific literacy is at the core, content and features are organized around a scientific literacy model asking students:

o        What do we know about this?

o        How can science help to explain this?

o        Can we critically evaluate the evidence?

o        Why is this relevant?

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 post-doctoral 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 brain 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 an associate professor of psychology at Southern Oregon University, where his focus is on teaching, writing, and supervising student research. He spends his spare time riding and racing his bike, cooking, reading, and enjoying Oregon's outdoors.

 

Dr. Daniel Corts received his B.S. in Psychology from Belmont University and his PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Tennessee in 1999.  He completed a post-doctoral position at Furman University for one year where he focused on the teaching of psychology. Corts is now Associate Professor of Psychology at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL, where he has been for over 10 years.  While in graduate school, he focused on language and gesture production.  He has since branched out to explore intentional forgetting, and has also published in the area of college student development. Corts also likes to conduct research in just about any topic his students wish to explore.  In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his two children, traveling, camping, and cooking.
