Summary

Derived from Anita Woolfolk's market-leadingEducational Psychology, Tenth Edition, the most thorough, accessible, and authoritative text on the market, the Active Learning Edition breaks the material into manageable "modules." To provide customers with an alternative version to the longer chapters of the standard 9th Edition, that version's 15 chapters now appear as 42 brief modules, which are easy to cover in shorter academic terms and will make learning easier for students. In addition to presenting comprehensive, expert coverage of all topics teachers need to understand about how students learn and all the classroom applications for which the author is justly renowned, the modules are grouped into clusters that allow for deeper context and background for each topic. Further, each module is a self-contained learning unit, with learning objectives and review questions ("Check Yourself") that provide immediate reinforcement of key concepts and build students'confidence in their grasp of the material. And adding to its interactivity are 14 end-of-cluster "Active Learning Connections" features filled with activities direct students to new and emerging technologies such, connecting them with one another and other Educational Psychology students through wikis, blogs, and many other useful technology resources and Web sites. Provides readers with self contained modules that provide deeper context and background for each educational psychology topic.This text addresses all key areas of educational psychology including: development, learning, motivation, assessment and more.Pre-service and in-service teachers and educational psychologists.
