A major new GCSE textbook, providing a series of "lessons" in psychology. Each lesson is a self-contained, "bite-sized" explanation of a topic with frequent opportunities for readers to test their understanding by filling in short questionnaires at the end of each section. This also encourages them to asses how the topic may have relevance to their own lives and personal relationships, whilst helping them to apply their knowledge and reinforce the lesson. This causes them to interact with the text and so reach better understanding and retain the information. The book can be read from beginning to end like any other text or can be used in a structured way to simulate the experience of studying at college.
Who is it for?
Readers can study as individuals or in a group from home, school, college or work. If they aim to take the GCSE qualification they may already have a tutor in a class or they may obtain tuition from an organisation to which the book directs them. Class tutors could be expected to recommend the book as a course text and work through it with their students or use it in a self-study workshop.
