From his experience as an author and teacher, David Myers has concluded that students digest material more easily when it is presented in smaller chunks. Ask students whether they would prefer a 600-page book to be organized as fifteen 40-page chapters or as forty 15-page chapters and their answers will approach a consensus: students prefer shorter chapters. And research on learning strategies supports this preference: chunked material is more easily digested. Responding to student preference and learning research, Myers has created a modular version of his best-selling brief introductory text, Exploring Psychology. Exploring Psychology, Fifth Edition, in Modules reorganizes the 15 chapters of Exploring Psychology, Fifth Edition into 40 short chapters, or modules. The modular organization offers instructors more freedom to pick and choose from a smorgasbord of topics. Instead of deciding whether to assign the whole chapter on consciousness, instructors can simply assign the module on sleep and dreams, the module on hypnosis, and/or the module on drugs and behavior. Given that each module stands alone and is not dependent upon the content found in other modules, instructors can also choose to cover the modules in any order they please. Featuring the latest research and teaching innovations, Myers' new text reflects the author's continuing drive to discover the most effective way to communicate psychology's major ideas to an uninitiated audience. Note: Exploring Psychology, Fifth Edition, in Modules is now available (saleable) in two different saleable versions: a. A hardcover, spiralbound text [similar in structure to the spiralbound Myers in Modules] b. A perfectbound paperback text Thefeatures that have made David Myers' introductory psychology textbooks such phenomenal successes (compelling narrative, critical thinking theme, superior design) are all present in Exploring Psychology, Fifth Edition, in Modules. The way those hallmark features are presented is different. This is NOT a brief version of Psychology: Myers in Modules, Sixth Edition. Rather, this new text is a Modularized version of Exploring Psychology, Fifth Edition. Therefore, it enjoys all of the hallmark features of Exploring Psychology, Fifth Edition: SQ3R pedagogical system, terrific writing, and briefer coverage of key topics. It is, in fact, the same writing/content as can be found in Exploring Psychology, Fifth Edition, just with a different organization.
