This is an INSTRUCTOR COPY so it has annotations at the top of each page. Psychological Science: Modeling Scientific Literacy helps students view psychology as a practical, modern science-and gives them the tools to better understand their world. Organized around a scientific literacy model, the text's content and features encourage scientific inquiry, prompting students to ask a series of scientific-minded questions about each topic. All aspects of the book-the topics covered, learning objectives, quizzes, even the modular format-have been developed to enable students to categorize the overwhelming amount of information they encounter, and to ignite their interest in psychological science. To ensure that scientific literacy is at the core of the book, content and features are organized around a scientific literacy model asking students: o What do we know about this? o How can science help to explain this? o Can we critically evaluate the evidence? o Why is this relevant?
