Trusted, fully engaged author team. David Myers’ partnership with coauthor C. Nathan DeWall matches two dedicated educators and scholars, each passionate about teaching psychological science through writing and interactive media.

Modular format. With its brief self-contained modules and teach-in-any-order organization, Psychology in Modules lets instructors teach exactly the material they want. For students, the modular format means more manageable reading assignments.

UPDATED "Assess Your Strengths" online activities. Now available with each chapter, the significantly revised Assess Your Strengths activities ask students to apply what they are learning from the text to their own lives and experiences by considering key "strengths." For each of these activities, the authors start by offering a personalized video introduction, explaining how that strength ties in to the content of the chapter. Next, they ask students to assess themselves on the strength (critical thinking, quality of sleep, self-control, relationship strength, healthy belonging, hope, and more) using scales developed by researchers across psychological science. After showing students their results, the authors offer tips for nurturing that strength in students’ own lives. Finally, students take a quiz to help solidify their learning.

How Would You Know online activities.

These online activities engage students in the scientific process, showing how psychological research begins with a question—and how key decision points can alter the meaning and value of a psychological study. In a fun, interactive environment, students learn about important aspects of research methods and analysis, such as random assignment, validity, and reliability.
