Part of the "Teaching Psychological Science" series, which offers guides for instructors written by instructors, this is a clear, concise, comprehensive guide for those who teach research methods in psychology. Saville (James Madison Univ.) addresses the importance of research methodology and goes on to share ideas, clarify concepts, and give examples of assignments. He discusses potential problems with teaching research methods and offers a variety of suggestions. Saville's style is upbeat and easy to read, and his presentation is well organized and nicely documented. An appendix of professional resources is included. This volume offers valuable practical advice for anyone teaching this subject, which is often considered problematic, but it may also be useful to those engaged in research in psychology. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and faculty. J. Bailey Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute
