Educational Psychology: Effective Teaching, Effective Learning arms students with the current, practical knowledge they need to become effective teachers. The applied focus, unique case study approach, and real life context of the text give your students the important skills they need to become tomorrow's teachers for diverse classrooms and students.Effective teaching requires more than straightforward teaching methods---teachers need to know their students well and able to adapt their teaching style to a particular classroom and individual students. The result: effective learning. Educational Psychology: Effective Teaching, Effective Learning provides more actual tools for future teachers than any other educational psychology text. It arms students with current, practical knowledge, gives them excellent coverage of traditional and emerging topics in educational psychology, offers a balanced theoretical orientationcognitive, social, and behavioraland consistently uses classroom examples to illustrate how these theories "work." The text provides excellent coverage of both traditional and emerging topics in educational psychology from a multi-author team with complementary areas of expertise allowing for more overall depth and breadth.In the third edition a new unique case study approach links text concepts and strategies to the actual practice of teaching. Each section of the text begins with a case that is carried throughout the section's four chapters. To help students problem-solve in the classroom, each chapter contains Case Notes and ends with ideas for improving the case situation (Case Reflections). Following each section is a feature called Teacher's Case Conference which offers informed discussion by real teachers.The third edition greatly increases coverage of constructivism in chapters 2, 7, and 8. The number of chapters has been reduced from 15 to 13 and an appendix on research methods has been added. The strong applied focus of the text now uses five new themes for effective teaching running throughout the book: communication, motivation, assessment, learning, and time. A new feature, TIPS (Teaching Interaction Principles and Strategies), provides over 100 brief summaries of key teaching principles throughout the text.
