Summary: Charlie Blair-Broeker and Randy Ernst are longtime teachers of the high school psychology course and have both worked hard nationally to strengthen psychology instruction at the high school level. David Myers, author of the best-selling college and AP-level texts, has provided invaluable insight and advice, and the latest updates on the field of psychology, throughout the development process. The authors are also working closely with a large group of insightful teach ...show moreer-reviewers and an experienced editorial team at Worth Publishers.

The authors present rigorous science in a non-threatening way with numerous and immediate examples that will help students bridge the abstract to the familiar. With their extensive teaching and writing experiences, Charles Blair-Broeker and Randy Ernst know how to speak directly to students who are new to psychology. The authors' friendly and accessible writing style, coupled with beautiful illustrations and an extensive supplements and media package, make this book the most compelling high school psychology text available.

This book closely follows the American Psychological Association (APA) National Standards for the Teaching of High School Psychology, for which both Blair-Broeker and Ernst served as Task Force members.

Modular Format provides ultimate flexibility for teachers.
The 34 modules cover all the key topics in the psychology course but have been written to stand independent from one another. There are no unexplained cross-references in any modules to topics not covered in that module, and there are no knowledge prerequisites for any module--the authors have not assumed that teachers will cover these module in any specific order. This gives teachers the ultimate flexibility to select only the modules they'd like to cover, in any order they like. The modules are grouped under 14 Chapter titles and are organized by the five Domains of the APA National Standards for the Teaching of High School Psychology.

Helpful In-Module Pedagogy helps students hone critical reading skills.
Each major section begins with a "What's the Point" question that helps students focus on the key points to be addressed in that section. These questions are answered in paragraph form in the end-of-module Review.
A marginal glossary throughout the text defines key terms immediately.

Innovative Box Program helps guide students in developing scientific reasoning skills.
Critical Thinking boxes help students strengthen and refine critical thinking skills.
Psychology is Science boxes challenge students to evaluate evidence and research findings thoughtfully.
Up Close boxes allow students to examine interesting topics in greater depth.

Exceptional End-of-Module Pedagogy help students review what they have read and prepare for exams.
End-of-module Self-Tests help students assess whether they are ready to move on to the next module. These tests contain multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, matching, and short answer/essay questions. Answers are provided in the Teacher's Edition.
