For undergraduate and graduate courses in the Psychology of Learning, which is also sometimes known as Animal Learning.The goal of this unique workbook is to supplement Learning textbooks with a collection of exercises that invite students to take a hands-on approach to "Learning." It promotes an active, constructivist approach, one that follows Bloom's (1956) taxonomy of instructional objectives. The constructivist approach encourages students to discover the answers to problems rather than simply look up solutions in a book. This workbook replaces the passivity of memorizing definitions and procedures with the activities of graphing and interpreting of functional relations-the pillars of theory.
