Do your introductory psychology students come to their first class with the notion that they already "know" psychology? Do they cite pop psychology as if it were real science and have a hard time telling the difference? Is one of your goals for your class to help them develop the critical thinking skills theyrs"ll need to become more discerning consumers of the psychological information theyrs"ll encounter in and more importantly outside the classroom? Allyn & Bacon is proud to introduce a groundbreaking new text that will help you achieve this goal. Many books tout critical thinking as a major feature. Lilienfeld goes way beyond existing books by motivating students to think critically by giving them the tools they need to master their new thinking skills and to remember key concepts from the course through a unique interactive review system.
