Summary

Snowman's Psychology Applied to Teaching can be used as both an introductory text and an on-the-job classroom resource. Over one-third of the text is devoted to extensive Suggestions for Teaching in Your Classroom--concrete examples and discussions of how to apply psychological research to the classroom. The Ninth Edition includes coverage of hot topics the importance of Erikson's Industry v. Inferiority stage to classroom teachers; cognitive characteristics of primary, elementary, and middle school children; the relation of Vygotsky's ideas to meaningful learning and metacognition; the role of visual imagery encoding; constructivism; and technology for classroom management and at-risk students. Cases in Print features use primary source material to illustrate the relationship between chapter content and actual classroom practice.
