About

Overview

The Cengage Learning DISCOVERY SERIES: HUMAN SEXUALITY is designed to deliver traditional course content in an innovative "hybrid" learning format—instruction presented in a printed handbook paired with integrated online applications and assessments. The program promotes measurable mastery of core course learning objectives by guiding students' active engagement with content delivered through the book, images, video, simulations, and assessments. This contemporary approach to learning seamlessly integrates text and technology, enabling students to easily move from the book's instruction to its online applications for a deeper, lasting understanding of the core psychological concepts, and for assessments (all assignable) that reliably track students' progress and performance.

Features and Benefits

  • Reading print to discover: Featuring content that is driven by learning objectives and organized into modules for optimal flexibility, the print component of the package provides a concise, but complete, course that introduces students to Human Sexuality's target concepts. (For those who prefer it, the book is also available electronically.)
  • Focusing on learning objectives to promote better outcomes: Each module begins with a set of learning objectives that focuses students' reading and guides them through the content. All book and online content is mapped to these objectives to ensure that students are learning the appropriate material—and consequently meeting the objectives.
  • Going online to interact and demonstrate learning: Available in Psychology CourseMate, each module's companion online content features media assets and activities that encourage vital interaction by requiring students to apply concepts and complete assignments to demonstrate their learning. Learning is then confirmed through a tightly integrated assessment that measures students' mastery of the module's learning objectives—and ensures that they meet the learning objectives before moving on.
  • Connecting print and online features to promote student engagement: Text and online resources work hand in hand. For instance, a chapter-opening "Prepare to Learn" feature advises students on how to work through the chapter, and invites them to take an online chapter pre-test, establishing a baseline for self-assessment. Throughout chapters, prompts for online activities and quizzes appear in sidebars on right-hand pages, as do icons identifying the four basic types of online resources included in the text's package: videos, animations, readings, and assessments.
  • Innovative page layout to keep students on track: Instructional pages that face each other consistently comprise three distinct learning "zones." Learning objectives appear in sidebars on left-hand pages, prompts for online activities and quizzes appear in sidebars on right-hand pages, and the instructional narrative spans the area in between. This consistent layout makes it easy for students to match learning objectives to instruction and assessments, helping them to remain oriented and productive throughout each chapter.
  • Readings for critical thinking: Every chapter concludes with a reading (and accompanying critical thinking questions) about a compelling subject related to the topic at hand. Some questions challenge students by asking them about the content of the reading, while others challenge them by asking that they make connections with content covered in other chapters.
  • Student questions answered: Each chapter contains a number of Learning Objective-focused videos. While some are aimed at illustrating key concepts or highlighting cases of particular interest, many serve the purpose of answering frequent student questions about many different aspects of sex.
  • Cutting edge illustrations: This text integrates visuals with major concepts and offers numerous updated biological illustrations as well as carefully selected photos. The photo program breathes new life into key concepts while new illustrations make complicated biological processes more accessible.
