Psychology: Concepts and Applications, 2/e, offers a concept-based approach supported by a unique pedagogical framework. Nevid provides a broad view of psychology that includes history, research methods, major theories, and research findings and their contemporary applications in everyday life. The text's successful modular format organizes each chapter into manageable instructional units that help students focus on one topic at a time within the context of a larger chapter structure. Jeffrey Nevid developed a comprehensive learning system for this text derived from his research on memory, learning, and textbook pedagogy. This learning model, which organizes the text's pedagogical features, incorporates four goals that Nevid refers to as the "Four E's of Effective Learning": Engaging Student Interest, Encoding Information, Elaborating Meaning, Evaluating Progress.
