Each Lab Activity includes a brief introduction to the topic and incorporates a scenario, or story, to frame the content. For instance, in the Memory chapter (as of 2017), you will find the following opening scenario:
Using a series of brain images, students visualize key anatomical structures as the scenario progresses. The functional purpose of each structure is explained and reinforced in the context of the story.
Throughout the assignment, student learning is assessed with a variety of questions, which can be fully customized by the instructor. Links to the full APR: Psychology site accompany each image, inviting students to explore further, if desired.
