Summary

The sixth edition of this popular book from renowned educational psychologist Robert Slavin translates theory into practices that teachers can use in their own classrooms by introducing the concept of intentionality. An Intentional Teacher, according to Slavin, is one who constantly reflects on his or her practices and makes instructional decisions based on a clear conception of how these practices affect students. To help readers become Intentional Teachers, the author offers a set of questions to guide them and models best practices through classroom examples.

Firmly rooted in research, up-to- date theory; and classroom-tested applications, Educational psychology prepares teachers as no other book does to think about what they do in the classroom and about how students develop and learn, to make decisions before and during instruction, and to consider what information they will use as evidence that their students are indeed learning and succeeding. An emphasis on intentional teaching helps preservice teachers internalize a set of questions that can aid them
