Teaching A Psychology of People brings together the viewpoints, research, and experiences of scholars from a wide range of areas within psychology, and from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. It reviews the deficiencies in psychological theory and research on the subjects of cultural, ethnic, and gender issues; presents recent theory and research; provides approaches to teaching about these groups; covers introductory psychology courses with chapters on each of the core psychology courses; and addresses obstacles and evaluates the effectiveness of a course or program—all with an eye toward increasing students' awareness of sociocultural issues in the study of psychology.
