Learning is an adventure--show your students how it can also be exciting with Dennis Coon's PSYCHOLOGY: A JOURNEY. In a course where professors are frequently confronted by students who haven't actually read their textbooks, PSYCHOLOGY: A JOURNEY offers a proven and trusted solution--and one that can be covered in a single term. Dennis Coon's popular text presents psychology in a way that sparks readers' curiosity, insights, imagination, and interest--getting students "hooked" on psychology and eager to read on. The book manages to cover not only essential topics at the core of psychology but many others at the cutting edge of current knowledge. The first author to integrate the proven SQ4R (Survey, Question, Read, Recite, Relate, and Review) active learning system into a psychology textbook, Coon helps readers grasp major concepts, develop a broad understanding of psychology's diversity, and see for themselves how psychology relates to the challenges of everyday life. Because readers become actively involved with the material, they develop a basic understanding of psychology that they take with them into their future courses and careers. And with a fully integrated technology package that streamlines teaching and motivates learning, PSYCHOLOGY: A JOURNEY offers the most complete teaching and learning solution you will find.
