Summary

For courses in Introductory Psychology

Ask questions and be willing to wonder
Invitation to Psychology, 7th Edition weaves scientific thinking and critical thinking into the fabric of psychological science. Joining longtime authors Carole Wade and Carol Tavris, new co-authors Samuel Sommers and Lisa Shin (of Tufts University) call upon their research and teaching expertise to speak to today’s students. Their contributions include expanded gender coverage as well as engaging new cultural and pop-cultural examples. By prompting students to separate fact from fiction and to distinguish wishful thinking from thinking wisely, the authors inspire students to ask questions and be willing to wonder — and help them become 21st-century thinkers.

Available to package with Invitation to Psychology, 7th Edition, MyLab™ Psychology is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. MyLab Psychology is ideal for courses requiring robust assessments.
