Description

The 12th Edition of Educational Psychology maintains the lucid writing style for which the author is renowned.  It is as free of jargon and technical language as possible in order to be clear, relevant, and interesting to all readers.  Theory and practice are not separated in the text, but are considered together.  The book shows very clearly how information and ideas drawn from research in educational psychology can be applied to solve the everyday problems of teaching. Readers explore the connections between research and practice through a wealth of examples, lesson segments, case studies, guidelines, and  practical tips from experienced teachers. The content reveals the immense value and usefulness of educational psychology, a field that offers unique and crucial knowledge to any who dare to teach and to all who love to learn.
