BFW Self-Guided Course Tours are designed with your schedule in mind - they're on-demand, self-paced, and provide you with everything you need to know to get started using BFW materials successfully in your classroom.

Each course contains short videos that review the AP® Exam (where applicable), the student edition, and teacher resources. The videos are all less than 3 minutes long, so they're easy to watch in-between classes, during prep, or whenever you need a refresher on your textbook program. At the end of the course, you'll receive a Program Guide to use as a reference of your materials, as well as a lesson planning guide to help you get started.

The psychology course is often a student favorite because it’s so relevant to our everyday lives. And like all Myers and DeWall texts, Psychology in Everyday Life delivers an enjoyable and entertaining read, complete with the latest research and an eye-catching design. Unlike other Myers/DeWall books, this is a brief offering that makes no assumptions about a student's background or experiences. This book is written with the diversity of your students in mind.


Why do we call this the book of no assumptions? Why does it matter?

Consider your student population. Now consider how the authors approach these topics. Will this help support your instruction?

  • Gender: Extensive coverage of gender roles and gender identity and the increasing diversity of choices men and women can make.
  • Culture: No assumptions about readers’ cultural backgrounds or experiences.
  • Economics: No references to backyards, summer camp, vacations.
  • Education: No assumptions about past or current learning environments; writing is accessible to all.
  • Physical Abilities: No assumptions about full vision, hearing, movement.
