Summary

How do people learn? How can instruction promote learning? Learning and Instruction, second edition, thoroughly and succinctly answers these two fundamental educational psychology questions. The author focuses on the big ideas, preferring that students understand a few exemplary ideas deeply, rather than numerous ideas superficially. The book is research-based and painstakingly shows how specific instructional implications follow from research and theory. Coverage is organized around the two sides of the educational coin, learning in subject areas and instructional methods, that foster meaningful learning. The text uses clear definitions, concrete examples, active learning tasks and a conversational writing style that easily engages readers by addressing them directly.
