Description

Educational Psychology: Theory and Practice gives tomorrow’s teachers the intellectual grounding and practical strategies they need to be effective instructors.  Complete, up-to-date information is presented in readable, practical ways and illustrated with engaging examples, case studies, and embedded videos and interactive activities.  The text makes the connection between theory and practice explicit, helping students to transfer what they learn to their own teaching.

From reviews of the text:

"The strength of this text is that it takes a tremendous amount of information about human growth and development and constructivist / student-centered teaching and condenses it down into a readable textbook complete with added resources and study skill strategies... a phenomenal task."  -- Jane Thielemann-Downs, University of Houston Downtown

"[This text] is an amazing work that provides real-world scenarios, key terminology, and descriptions that are easily read and explained. This author was able to interface policies and theories into the practice and help the learner to realize the relevance and the integrity of the profession of Education as whole.  The quotes and explanations are on target and the use of Connection and Certification Pointers are great ... the rich discussion on hard-to discuss topics were marvelous."  -- Shirlyn Garrett-Wilson, Chicago State University
