Summary

Unlike most educational psychology books, which take one theory at a time, explain its assumptions and principles and then identify implications for educational practice,Essentials of Educational Psychologyfocuses more on the commonalities than the differences among theories, because although researchers from different traditions have approached human cognition and behavior from many different angles, they sometimes arrive at more or less the same conclusions. This book integrates ideas from many theoretical perspectives into a set of principles and concrete strategies that psychologyas a wholecan offer you. See for Yourselfexercises will help you discover more about yourself as a thinker and learner and also help you come to a deeper and more personal understanding of educational psychologyrs"s core ideas.

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 and is currently Professor Emerita in UNC’s School of Psychological Sciences. She has published numerous research articles on cognition and memory, cognitive development, and giftedness, but she is probably best known for this textbook and four others: Educational Psychology: Developing Learners (now in its seventh edition); Human Learning (now in its fifth edition); Child Development and Education (co-authored with Teresa McDevitt, now in its fourth edition); and Practical Research (co-authored with Paul Leedy, now in its ninth edition). After raising three children (two of whom have become teachers themselves), she now lives in New Hampshire with her husband Richard and occasionally teaches courses at the University of New Hampshire.
