Summary

Long recognized for its groundbreaking innovations in placing educational psychology firmly within the classroom context, this new edition of the best-selling book examines every educational psychology theory (learning, motivation, and development) and every relevant concept from the teacher's viewpoint. Hallmark cases, in both written and videotape format, introduce real-life into the book, giving readers a "window" on today's classrooms. With its focus on teaching "in the real world," this book covers such topics as: learners (cognitive and language development) and their differences; learning (behaviorism, cognitive theory, constructing understanding, and complex cognitive processes); and classroom processes (theories of motivation, creating productive learning environments, and assessments). For those interested in educational psychology, including teachers, administrators for educational institutions, therapists, and guidance counselors.
