Features and Benefits

  • An innovative combination of content delivery--both in print and online--provides a core text and a wealth of comprehensive multimedia teaching and learning assets based on input from student focus groups and surveys, and from interviews with over 200 faculty and students.
  • Shorter, comprehensive chapters in a modern design present content in a more engaging and accessible format without minimizing coverage for your course.
  • Instructor Prep Cards at the back of the Instructor's Edition make preparation simple with detachable cards for each chapter, offering a quick map of chapter content, a list of corresponding PowerPoint® and video resources, additional examples, and suggested assignments and discussion questions to help you organize chapter content efficiently.
  • Suggestions for Teaching provide concrete teaching examples that highlight the application of psychological research in the classroom. This real-world connection helps pre-service teachers understand the value of their educational psychology course in their development as an educator.
  • "TeachSource Video Case" boxes integrate the text with award-winning video cases, bringing key topics to life and simulating classroom observation by referring students to relevant cases that they can view online.
  • Case in Print presents a recent newspaper article in every chapter, illustrating the relationship between chapter content and real-life classroom practices.
  • Challenging Assumptions highlights a recommendation or practice that is based on one or more assumption and offers a counterargument that challenges those assumptions.
  • Pause & Reflect sections prompt students to stop and think about a concept, make connections between concepts, and relate theory and actual classroom practice. These features also encourage students to relate their own experiences to what they are reading.
