For courses in learning, advanced educational psychology, or instructional models. This text examines how children learn from different methods of instruction. It profiles methods such as feedback, guided exploration, cognitive apprenticeship, problem-based learning, and teaching of problem-solving strategies that allow learners to take what they have learned and apply it to new situations. Readers are exposed to what research has to say about teaching for meaningful learning and learn how to apply this information to their own teaching.
