Ellen Pastorino and Susann Doyle-Portillo are dedicated, award-winning psychology professors with an infectious enthusiasm for teaching psychology. Praised in previous editions for fostering students' curiosity, WHAT IS PSYCHOLOGY? Third Edition, extends the authors' successful and engaging approach to teaching the introductory psychology course. The authors have found that when students are curious they are motivated to explore and truly learn how psychological concepts are connected. This book unlocks readers' curiosity by capturing their interest and then helping them see connections between personal stories, applications to their own lives, and psychological concepts that they will use and retain in and out of the classroom.
