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. A unique "Think It Over" feature asks readers to reflect on important topics as both a student of psychology and a future classroom teacher. TeachSource Video Cases, introduced in the text and available to view on the book's Companion Website, give students a firsthand look at real-world applications and best practices. Among the other distinctive aspects of the text is an entire chapter on group process.

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," engages students and introduces the central concepts of the chapter.
  • 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," clarifies difficult concepts; and "Did You Know?" segments feature interesting and relevant insights. Video Cases present interactive real world examples of teachers at work in the classroom.
