About

Overview

This comprehensive educational psychology text blends a strong scholarly and theoretical background with the application of theories and concepts using real-world examples, case studies, and practical teaching strategies. The text’s innovative pedagogical program is anchored by a cohesive learning objective system integrated throughout each chapter, guiding students’ reading and reinforcing their understanding of concepts. This edition includes access to the book’s website, Education CourseMate, where students can participate in Virtual Psychology Labs. Introduced in the text, the labs illuminate key experiments that are not easily explained in a book or demonstrated in the classroom. Through these first-hand research experiences, students gain a better understanding of the experiments’ methodologies, conclusions, and implications. TeachSource Video Cases, introduced in the text and available at CourseMate, allow students to view real-life classroom scenarios that demonstrate teaching applications and best practices. Among other distinctive aspects of the text are an entire chapter on group process and a unique "Think It Over" feature that asks readers to reflect on important topics as both a student of psychology and a future classroom teacher.

Features and Benefits

  • An integrated learning objective system, which guides study and reinforces the understanding of concepts, features a list of seven to ten objectives linked to the chapter outline. Each learning objective next appears in the text margin alongside the section that corresponds to it, and again in the chapter summary, "Summing It Up," where it is listed with corresponding key concepts and page references.
  • Chapter-opening vignettes, "Stories to Learn From," engage students and introduce the central concepts of the chapter.
  • This edition includes access to the book’s website, Education CourseMate, where students can participate in Virtual Psychology Labs. Introduced in the text, the labs illuminate key experiments that are not easily explained in a book or demonstrated in the classroom, allowing students to gain a better understanding of the experiments’ methodologies, conclusions, and implications.
  • Unique "Think It Over" segments in each chapter ask students to answer a question about the content just covered from two perspectives--as a learner and as a teacher. This feature addresses the dual reality of educational psychology students, and encourages them to begin thinking like teachers.
  • "Take It to the Classroom" is an action-oriented list of teaching strategies directly related to the topics under discussion, which student teachers can apply immediately when facing real issues in the classroom.
  • Boxed features include "Discourse on Diversity," which focuses on an aspect of diversity in the classroom and may be identified as pertaining to elementary, middle, or high school; "An Example to Aid Understanding," which clarifies difficult concepts; and "Did You Know?" segments featuring interesting and relevant insights.
  • Video Cases, introduced in the text and viewable at Education CourseMate, present real world examples of teachers at work in the classroom.
