Focused on the “big ideas” of educational psychology,  Essentials of Educational Psychology presents the core concepts and research-based strategies that are most directly applicable to teaching and learning.  Full of classroom applications and strategies for planning and carrying out instruction, assessment, and classroom management, this unique text helps readers understand how to facilitate learning as teachers.  This interactive, media-rich text also is unique in its ability to help readers see and understand their own learning. 

 

 

From reviews of the book:

 

“I do not think anyone can write to an undergraduate like Jeanne Ormrod can.”

 

         –Deborah Switzer, Clemson University

 

“Many similar textbooks suffer from the "everything, including the kitchen sink" problem. This is a mostly-lean and focused text. . . . The extensive examples help with clarity. . . . [And I] appreciate how a chapter starts with theory and research, and ends with lots and lots of useful strategies. This book really matches its subtitle [“Big Ideas to Guide Effective Teaching”].   I . . . greatly value the Cultural Considerations box in each chapter. . . [and] plan to make time to come back and study them again, to improve both how I teach and what I teach my students about learner differences.”

 

          –Kym Buchanan, University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point

 

 

“I see students in my class who are not able to do well in other courses . . . get high grades in this course partly due to the textbook. This text is written in a . . . way for students to get the main points of the material and connect them with real-life examples. In this way, they are able to quickly become successful at understanding the material in a practical and applicable way.  This text . . . is [also]a good study tool to use when preparing for licensure exams.”

 

         –Kimberlee Taylor, Utah State University

Author Biography

Jeanne Ellis Ormrod received her A.B. in psychology from Brown University and her M.S. and Ph.D. in educational psychology from The Pennsylvania State University. She earned licensure in school psychology through postdoctoral work at Temple University and the University of Colorado at Boulder and has worked as a middle school geography teacher and school psychologist.  She was Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Northern Colorado until 1998, when she moved east to return to her native New England. She has published numerous research articles on cognition and memory, cognitive development, and giftedness but is probably best known for this book and four others: Human Learning (currently in its sixth edition); Educational Psychology: Developing Learners (currently in its eigth edition); Child Development and Education (co authored with Teresa McDevitt, currently in its fifth edition); and Practical Research (co authored with Paul Leedy, currently in its tenth edition). She has also recently published a non textbook for a broad audience: Our Minds, Our Memories: Enhancing Thinking and Learning at All Ages. With her three children now grown and out on their own, she lives in New Hampshire with her husband, Richard.
