Summary

The Routledge Companion to Educational Psychologybrings together expert practitioners, researchers, and teachers from four continents to produce a unique and global guide to the core topics in the field. Each chapter includes coverage of the key thinkers, topic areas, events, and ideas that have shaped the field, but also takes the reader beyond typical textbook material and into engagement with current issues, cutting-edge research and future directions in the field of educational psychology from an international perspective. Over 30 chapters cover the key issues and fundamental strands of educational psychology. In part one, a historical account of education psychology is provided along with an introduction to modern-day educational psychology practice and the rights of the child. Part two explores how children learn and develop covering key topics such as literacy development, scientific reasoning, and human motivation. There is also coverage of the various factors and strategies that may promote effective teaching and learning such as pedagogical practice, classroom management, educational dialogues, interpersonal relationships, and digital technology. In part three, the role of assessment in educational psychology is considered with reference to curriculum assessments, diagnostic assessments, and language use and assessment. The concept of labelling is discussed along with a consideration of the worldwide-relevant topic of multi-cultural education. Part four concerns the identification of, and provision for, children with learning difficulties. A whole range of topics are covered here, such as sensory impairment, speech and language disorders, social, emotional and behavioural disorders (SEBDs), dyslexia, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, and giftedness. The closing chapter explores the complex and controversial subject of inclusion versus segregation.
