Your students are individuals. Do your teaching materials treat them that way? Feldman’s Understanding Psychology does.
Using a revolutionary revision process, Bob Feldman’s Understanding Psychology is a fully integrated learning system that gives students an even greater opportunity to achieve success, and brings the Students First goal to a new level. With an adaptive learning system that provides an individualized learning environment and helps students identify what they know, and more importantly, what they don’t, every student has a unique experience refined to their needs.
The thoroughly revised Eleventh Edition is a first of its kind, revised using “HeatMap” technology in which systematic and precise feedback from thousands of students was anonymously measured using LearnSmart, the adaptive learning diagnostic. Because virtually every paragraph in the previous edition is tied to several questions students answer in LearnSmart, Bob was able to see where students struggled most…the “hot spots”…and in turn refine and update these areas to be more clear, more concise, and more impactful.
The 11th edition continues Bob Feldman’s accessible pedagogy and hallmark research, as well as his modules-within-chapters format that is both manageable for students and allows every professor the flexibility to assign and cover what they want. The 4 additional modules in CREATE give instructors even extra flexibility to completely cater their text to their course and their students.

brand new in wrapperAbout the Author:
Robert S. Feldman still remembers those moments of beingoverwhelmed when he started college at Wesleyan University. "I wondered whether I was up to thechallenges that faced me," he recalls, "and--although I never would haveadmitted it at the time--I really had no idea what it took to be successful atcollege."That experience, along with his encounters with many students during his ownteaching career, led to a life-long interest in helping students navigate thecritical transition that they face at the start of their own collegecareers. Professor Feldman, who went onto receive a doctorate in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison,teaches at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where he is AssociateDean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and Professor ofPsychology. He directs POWER Up forStudent Success, the UMass first-year experience course for incoming students.Professor Feldman's proudest professional accomplishment is winning the CollegeOutstanding Teaching Award at UMass. Healso has been named a Hewlett Teaching Fellow and was Senior Online InstructionFellow. He has taught courses at MountHolyoke College, Wesleyan University, and Virginia Commonwealth University.Professor Feldman is a Fellow of both the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science. He is a winner of a Fulbright Senior Research Scholar and Lecturer awardand has written some 100 scientific articles, book chapters, and books. His books, some of which have been translatedinto Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Chinese, include Improving the First Yearof College: Research and Practice, Understanding Psychology, 8/e, andDevelopment Across the Life Span, 4/e. His research interests encompass the study of honesty and truthfulnessin everyday life, development of nonverbal behavior in children, and the socialpsychology of education. His researchhas been supported by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health andthe National Institute on Disabilities and Rehabilitation Research. With the last of his three children completing college, Professor Feldmanoccupies his spare time with serious cooking and earnest, but admittedly unpolished,piano playing. He also loves totravel.
