In writing Introduction to Psychology, vol. 2.1, Charles Stangor's aims were simple:
This textbook is suitable for these courses: Introduction to Psychology
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4 year institutions.
Each chapter opens showcasing real world examples of people dealing with behavioral questions and who can use psychology to help them answer them. The opener is designed to draw the student into the chapter and create an interest in learning about the topic.
Each chapter contains one or two features designed to link the principles from the chapter to real-world applications.
Each chapter presents two close-ups on research that remind students of the importance of empirical research. These close-ups emphasize the fact that findings are not always predictable ahead of time (dispelling the myth of hindsight bias), and also help students understand how research really works.
