Summary

How do people learn? How can instruction promote learning? This new book by a noted scholar thoroughly and succinctly answers these two fundamental educational psychology questions. The author focuses on the "big" ideas, preferring that readers understand a few exemplary ideas deeply, rather than numerous ideas superficially. The book uses clear definitions, concrete examples, and a conversational writing style that easily engages readers by addressing them directly. Coverage is organized around two "sides" of the educational "coin:" learning in subject areas and instructional methods that foster meaningful learning; and explaining what research says about the learning/teaching process. For professionals in the field of Education Psychology.
