Educational Psychology: Windows on Classrooms, Eighth Edition provides future teachers with the practical and hands-on solutions they and their students urgently need.
Long recognized as very applied and practical, Eggen and Kauchak's Educational Psychology: Windows on Classrooms, eighth edition gives students exactly what they need to know in the intro to Ed Psych course. The author’s hallmark cases remain, both in written and video format, to introduce real-world applications in a way that no other text can.
Along with new guidelines for applying theory to practice, the eighth edition provides extensive coverage of diversity and illustrations of how to appropriately align instruction to individual needs.
