In lucid and jargon-free prose, the text explains and illustrates educational psychology's practical relevance for teachers and learners. The new edition continues to emphasize the applications of research on child development, on learning and cognition, on motivation, and on instruction and assessment. At the same time the text has long been counted on for its state of the art presentation of the field of educational psychology, and this edition continues that tradition with new and expanded coverage of import topics like the brain and neuroscience, the impact of technology on the lives and learning of students, and student diversity.
From reviews of the book:
“I polled my students . . . and the vast majority actually liked the textbook (which is rare). They find it easy to read, interesting and engaging. . . . This textbook’s major strengths are its cognitive perspective, its readability, and the fact that it puts into practice some of the information-processing strategies that it teaches as effective ways to process information. . . .”
—Elizabeth Pemberton, University of Delaware
“[T]he text is written in a . . . conversational style that invites students to actively explore complex questions about teaching and learning. It is well-organized, supported with visual aids, and various learning tools, such as guidelines, reflection activities, and cases presenting opposing viewpoints. Most importantly, the text is informed and well supported by contemporary scholarship in the field of educational psychology.”
—Alina Reznitskaya, Montclair State University

Anita Woolfolk Hoy was born in Fort Worth, Texas, where her mother taught child development at TCU and her father was an early worker in the computer industry. She is a Texas Longhorn—all her degrees are from the University of Texas, Austin, the last one a Ph.D. After graduating, she was a psychologist working with children in elementary and secondary schools in 15 counties of central Texas. She began her career in higher education as a professor of educational psychology at Rutgers University, and then moved to The Ohio State University in 1994. Anita’s research focuses on motivation and cognition, specifically students’ and teachers’ sense of efficacy and teachers’ beliefs about education. She is the editor of Theory Into Practice, a journal that brings the best ideas from research to practicing educators. With students and colleagues, she has published over 80 books, book chapters, and research articles. Anita has served as Vice-President for Division K (Teaching & Teacher Education) of the American Educational Research Association and President of Division 15 (Educational Psychology) of the American Psychological Association. Just before completing this 12th edition of Educational Psychology, she collaborated with Nancy Perry, University of British Columbia, to write the first edition of Child Development (Pearson, 2012), a book for all those who work with and love children. Her next project is the 4th edition of Instructional Leadership: A Research-Based Guide to Learning in School (Pearson), written with her husband, Wayne K. Hoy, the Novice Fawcett Chair of Educational Administration at The Ohio State University.
