How can you resist a billion dollar marketing industry working to convince you to buy stuff you think you need with money you know you don't have?
Your students will be able to answer these and many other questions with Psychology for Everyday Life, an accessible introduction to psychology book that emphasizes aspects of psychological science students can relate to in their daily lives.
Psychology for Everyday Life gives students an edge in the job market by helping develop key teamwork skills sought by employers. The book is specifically designed for use with a team-based learning teaching paradigm (Michaelsen, Knight, and Fink, 2002):
- Students are assigned to permanent teams and work together on complex, authentic tasks.
- Each reading assignment is followed by one or more activities that students complete in their teams.
- Activities give students practice working in diverse teams on complex tasks.
- Classes are therefore more engaging and fun.
Psychology for Everyday Life is a valuable resource from which you can draw active learning exercises for a traditional or team-based learning environment.
