The most learner-centered and assessment-driven text available. Using the APA undergraduate psychology learning outcomes, the authors establish clear learning objectives for students and tie the text assessment to these objectives. Praised for a very engaging writing style, comprehensive coverage of key research, and strong pedagogical features, Ciccarelli focuses on getting students to actually read their textbook. The thirteen chapter table of contents covers the essentials that every introductory psychology student should know and fits easily into a one semester course.
