Overview

MindTap™ Psychology for Snowman/McCown's Psychology Applied to Teaching, 14th Edition is the digital learning solution that helps instructors engage and transform today's students into critical thinkers. Through paths of dynamic assignments and applications that you can personalize, real-time course analytics, and an accessible reader, MindTap helps you turn cookie cutter into cutting edge, apathy into engagement, and memorizers into higher-level thinkers. MindTap will guide students to: know, remember, and understand concepts critical to becoming a great teacher; apply concepts, create tools, and demonstrate performance and competency in key areas in the course; prepare artifacts for their portfolio and eventual state licensure as they get ready to launch a successful teaching career; and develop the habits to become a reflective practitioner. As students move through each chapter’s learning path, they engage in a scaffolded learning experience designed to move them up Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy from lower- to higher-order thinking skills. Access to this product is valid for 6 months of usage.

Instructor Diane Carter from the University of Idaho talks about how MindTap helps her personalize her course.

“MindTap’s greatest strengths are the progress tracking and the ability to add [your own] materials that are gradable.”

“I’m convinced that the higher course ratings and grades were, in large part, a result of students’ engagement. It was an unmitigated success.”

FOR INSTRUCTORS

Online Instructor's Manual with Test Bank

ISBN: 9781285736488
Revised by Rick McCown, the Instructor’s Manual with Test Bank (IMTB) provides an organizing framework that enables instructors to efficiently select and access instructional components that accompany the text. The manual also provides a model syllabus, activities, discussion topics, formative assessments, and a test bank. The formative assessments are those that experienced educational psychology instructors have found to be effective in engaging aspiring teachers in the classroom; for instance, through activities that check comprehension and understanding of concepts, and help pre-service teachers construct factual, conceptual, procedural, and metacognitive knowledge. Thoroughly revised by Jack Snowman, the Test Bank includes test items consisting of multiple-choice items in alternate forms, short-answer questions, and essay questions. Each multiple-choice and short-answer question reflects a Key Point and either the Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, or Analysis level of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Feedback booklets allow instructors to point out misconceptions in students’ reasoning. Available online, the IMTB makes it easy for instructors to import organizational tools, activities, and assessments that they wish to use in class.
