For introductory courses in educational psychology.Anita Wookfolk's best-selling Educational Psychology has been reformatted--its chapters "chunked" into clusters and modules according to the principle of Distributed Learning--to give instructors greater course flexibility and to help students master the material even more easily. It provides state of the art information, delivered in multiple media and modalities, for students with a variety of learning styles.Derived from Anita Woolfolk's market-leading Educational Psychology, Eleventh Edition, the most thorough, accessible, and authoritative text on the market, the Active Learning Edition breaks the material into manageable "modules." To provide customers with an alternative version to the longer chapters of the standard 11th Edition, that version's 15 chapters now appear as 40 brief modules, which are easy to cover in shorter academic terms and will make learning easier for students. In addition to presenting comprehensive, expert coverage of all topics teachers need to understand about how students learn and all the classroom applications for which the author is justly renowned, the modules are grouped into clusters that allow for deeper context and background for each topic. Further, each module is a self-contained learning unit, with learning objectives and both in-text and online review activities that provide immediate reinforcement of key concepts and build students' confidence in their grasp of the material. And adding to its interactivity are 14 end-of-cluster "Active Learning Connections" features filled with activities that direct students to new and emerging technologies that connect them with one another and other Educational Psychology students through wikis, blogs, and many other useful technology resources and Web sites.
