Educational Psychology: Windows on Classrooms, Ninth Edition,will help you increase student learning and development. It is the most applied book in the field. If you're looking for a book that gives you a sound theoretical and research-based foundation and then provides specific and concrete illustrations and guidelines for applying this theory and research with your students, this is the book for you. The book uses an integrated-caseapproach. Each chapter begins with a case study taken from actual classroom practice. But, instead of stopping there, Eggen and Kauchak then weave the case throughout each chapter-extracting specific illustrations from it, and in some instances even taking dialogue from the lesson-to illustrate classroom applications of sometimes abstract and hard to understand theory and research.
