Summary

This edition continues to have in-depth, practical coverage with a focus on the intentional teacher by presenting up-to-the-minute research that a reflective, intentional teacher can apply. The seventh edition of this popular text from renowned educational psychologist Robert Slavin translates theory into practices that teachers can use in their classrooms with a further inquiry into 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 text does. It teaches them to think about how students develop and learn, to make decisions before and during instruction, and to consider what constitutes evidence that their students are learning and succeeding. This edition includes new sections on brain research, expanded coverage of Title I, programs for language minority students, and comprehensive school reform. It contains new critiques of assessment and accountability strategies and a substantially updated treatment of programming for students with special needs.
