Description:

This title is only available as a loose-leaf version with Pearson eText, or an electronic book. 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. Concluding each chapter, The Intentional Teacher and Self-Assessment: Practicing for Licensure help prepare students to apply the chapter content to the kinds of questions they may encounter in licensure exams and in the classroom.  Pearson eText users can answer the questions and receive immediate feedback.  (See pages 64 and 67 for examples.)  Margin icons are provided to connect core content across chapters and to the InTASC model core teaching standards and to guide study for certification exams, and an appendix maps the content of the text to the Praxis II:  Principles of Learning and Teaching exam.  (See pages 124, 126, 127, and 411-435 for examples.) Every chapter of the Pearson eText has embedded video examples that illustrate and explain key concepts, including at least one Personal Reflection video, in which the author comments on his experiences as a teacher, researcher, and parent to illuminate the chapter content.  (See pages 130, 131, and 146 for examples.)  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 Pointers are great ... the rich discussion on hard-to discuss topics were marvelous."                 -- Shirlyn Garrett-Wilson, Chicago State University  Video-Enhanced Pearson eText.
