With Vantage, I set up my course in under 10 minutes, which is unheard of...And it benefitted students, they did all the right things in all the right places. I love Vantage!” 

Karin Machluf, Instructor

“I think that Vantage [is] an ideal system that will promote engagement of students.”

Linda Trautman
Ohio University

“What I most like about Vantage is that my students are coming into class preparedStudent performance after implementing Vantage is incredible. It used to be out of 40 or 50 students, I had 4 or 5 A’s… and now instead of having that bulk of grades in the C’s, they’re in the A’s. We know that reading increases performance, but this is a really tangible way to see that.” 

Karen Deeming, Instructor
Merced College

“I am really excited to have tools that help motivate students to actually do the reading…”

Emily Hopkins
University of Scranton

“...Really going to deepen students’ understanding and...boost their comprehension.”

Daniel Okamura

“My learners really enjoyed the SAGE Vantage experience. Many of them said it forced them to read, which aided in their comprehension…The feedback I received is that they all really enjoyed the interactive nature of the program, as well as the [number] of activities…”     

Daniel Amoruso, Instructor
Boise State University

“…[It’s] easy to read, it’s just straightforward.”

    • A brand-new chapter on Cognitive Development introduces and clearly explains how children develop knowledge, skills, problem solving and dispositions, which help them to think about and understand the world around them.
    • The previous edition’s Chapter 12 on Reasoning and Decision Making has been split into two separate chapters, providing students with more in-depth instruction on both topics.
    • Learning objectives have been added to the beginning of each chapter and correspond to each major section of the chapter, helping to clarify what is covered in each section.
    • All of the Thinking About Research articles that appear at the end of the chapters have been revised and updated along with the accompanying critical thinking questions that follow.
    • Chapter 4 on Attention and Chapter 11 on Problem Solving have been completely reorganized to focus more on the uses of these processes in everyday tasks.
  • Chapter opening real-world situational vignettes engage students in the topics through connections to everyday situations they might encounter.
  • Connections between the different topics within chapters show students the large overlap between the mental processes in cognitive psychology.
  • A focus on the methods used to study each topic aids students in understanding the science behind the methodology.
