Summary

In Psychology, Thirteenth Edition in Modules, David Myers and Nathan DeWall break down the content of the new edition of their chapter-based Psychology into 55 independent modules, assignable in any sequence and brief enough to be read in one sitting. This flexible format is favored by a wide range of students and instructors, and supported by research showing that students working with shorter reading assignments are better able to retain the concepts.

From its beginnings to this remarkably fresh and current new edition, Myers and DeWall have found extraordinarily effective ways to involve students with the remarkable research underlying our understanding of human behavior. But while the content and learning support evolves edition after edition, the text itself continues to be shaped by basic goals David Myers established at the outset, including to connect students to high-impact research, to focus on developing critical thinking skills, and to present a multicultural perspective on psychology, so students can see themselves in the context of a wider world.

This new edition offers 2100 research citations dated 2015–2020, making these the most up-to-date introductory psychology course resources available. With so many exciting new findings, and every chapter updated with current new examples and ideas, students will see the importance and value of psychological research, and how psychology can help them make sense of the world around them.

The abundant, high quality teaching and learning resources in LaunchPad and in Achieve Read & Practice, carefully matched to the text content, help students succeed, while making life easier and more enjoyable for instructors.
