The new edition of Exploring Psychology in Modules offers outstanding currency on the research, practice, and teaching of psychology. Myers and DeWall inspire students with fascinating findings and applications, effective new study tools and technologies, and a compassionate and compelling storytelling voice. Their presentation is based on the same guiding principles behind the entire family of textbooks that have made David Myers the world’s bestselling introductory psychology author: Facilitate learning by teaching critical thinking and helping students at every step. Present psychology as a science, emphasizing the process of inquiry and putting facts in the service of concepts. Make sure students come away with an appreciation of psychology’s big ideas, and with a deeper respect for humanity—what drives us, distinguishes us, unifies us. This Exploring Psychology in Modules is the first to include Myers’ handpicked co-author. Nathan DeWall shares Myers’ belief that instilling a sense of curiosity and inquiry about psychological science is an effective way to help students navigate the content, think critically, and prepare for a lifetime of learning and living. The extraordinary, longtime Myers ancillary author team is also here—a group whose teamwork, consistency, and commitment again sets the industry standard for instructor and student supplements. The high quality that consistently sets Myers’ ancillaries apart sees a new incarnation in LaunchPad. This course space organizes all the book’s digital resources in an online format that makes it easier for instructors to teach, track, and assess their students. This text offers the content organized in 45, student-friendly modules, assignable in any sequence and brief enough to be read in one sitting. Students digest material better when they process it in smaller chunks—as spaced rather than massed practice—and instructors often appreciate the flexibility of assigning any modules in any order.

Computational Social Psychology showcases a new approach to social psychology that enables theorists and researchers to specify social psychological processes in terms of formal rules that can be implemented and tested using the power of high speed computing technology and sophisticated software. This approach allows for previously infeasible investigations of the multi-dimensional nature of human experience as it unfolds in accordance with different temporal patterns on different timescales. In effect, the computational approach represents a rediscovery of the themes and ambitions that launched the field over a century ago. The book brings together social psychologists with varying topical interests who are taking the lead in this redirection of the field. Many present formal models that are implemented in computer simulations to test basic assumptions and investigate the emergence of higher-order properties; others develop models to fit the real-time evolution of people’s inner states, overt behavior, and social interactions. Collectively, the contributions illustrate how the methods and tools of the computational approach can investigate, and transform, the diverse landscape of social psychology.

Using Hot Topics to Foster Critical Thinking
Author: Dana Dunn
Publisher: Amer Psychological Assn
"Every serious psychology teacher strives to design and execute classes that will be comprehensive, organized, predictable, dynamic, and meaningful. As psychology educators, we are blessed to teach in a discipline that provides such an impressive store of rich raw material from which to choose to help us meet our intended teaching and learning outcomes. However, every seasoned psychology teacher also knows that dealing with controversial issues effectively requires strategic, sometimes delicate, management to achieve desired results and avoid chaos in the classroom. In Controversy in the Psychology Classroom: Using Hot Topics to Foster Critical Thinking, the highly skilled editorial team of Dana S. Dunn, Regan A. R. Gurung, Karen Z. Naufel, and Janie H. Wilson have provided an indispensable set of pedagogical tools for navigating the sometimes uncertain terrain of controversial issues to help professors determine where to stand. The authors have designed a text that promotes careful consideration not just of the inevitability of controversy as part of the learning experience in psychology but also of the opportunity that such experiences can generate"--Foreword.

It is built around the idea that students must study the discipline of psychology as a whole, that the sub-disciplines are intricately connected, and that human behavior is best understood by exploring its functioning state in addition to its potential dysfunctions.
