PSYCHOLOGY: FOUNDATIONS AND FRONTIERS offers a fresh and updated approach that combines the appealing content, visuals, and effective features of Douglas Bernstein's two previous introductory psychology textbooks. Focusing on active learning, the text presents important findings from established and current research, emphasizes the many ways psychological theory and research results are being applied to benefit human welfare, and integrates extensive pedagogy. The integrated pedagogical system helps students master the material by supporting the elements of the PQ4R (Preview, Question, Read, Recite, Review, and Reflect) study system. Try This activities illustrate psychological principles or phenomena by encouraging students to learn by doing. Other features designed to promote efficient learning include Linkages diagrams and sections that show how topics in psychology are interrelated, Thinking Critically sections that apply a five-question approach to various topics, and Focus on Research sections that help students think objectively about research questions and results. To offer flexibility in a single-term course, the book includes eighteen chapters that may be assigned in whatever order meets instructors' needs.
