About the Book
Why does one person react to test anxiety by studying harder while another person gives up? As with all other behavior, the answer depends on many things: genetics, cultural and family expectations, previous behaviors, and a person’s own blend of attitudes and values. Human behavior is a fascinating subject to study because it’s all about our own social-emotional development and what we do in response to certain stimuli. Hands-on STEM activities, interesting trivia, and links to primary sources, videos, and other relevant websites engage kids beyond the text for a deeper learning experience.
