Helps 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 inquiry and prompt students to ask scientific questions about each topic. All aspects of the book – topics covered, learning objectives, quizzes, even the modular format – have been developed to help students categorize the overwhelming amount of information they encounter and to ignite their interest in psychological science.
MyPsychLab is an integral part of the Krause / Corts program. Engaging activities and assessments provide a teaching and learning system that helps students hone their scientific literacy. With MyPsychLab, students can watch videos on psychological research and applications, participate in virtual classic experiments, and develop critical thinking skills through writing.

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.
