The Tenth Edition of this popular text from renowned educational psychologist Robert Slavin translates theory into practices that teachers can use in their classrooms with deeper inquiry into the concept of intentionality and a thorough integration of standards. This edition highlights current issues and emerging trends in the field of educational psychology.


This edition continues to have in-depth, practical coverage with a focus on the intentional teacher by presenting up-to-the-minute research that a reflective, intentional teacher can apply. An “intentional teacher,” according to Slavin, is one who constantly reflects on his or her practice and makes instructional decisions based on a clear conception of how these practices affect students. To help readers become “intentional teachers,” the author offers a set of questions to guide them and models best practices through classroom examples.


Firmly rooted in research, up-to-date theory, and classroom-tested applications, Educational Psychology prepares teachers as no other text does. It teaches them to think about how students develop and learn, to make decisions before and during instruction, and to consider what constitutes evidence that their students are learning and succeeding.

Educational Psychology takes a serious look at pertinent research and focuses on what works and how a reflective, intentional teacher can apply it in the classroom. Reflective questions, vignettes, and self-checks challenge students to think about and make decisions that drive successful instruction. The new edition builds on these established features and adds an emphasis on media effects on Learning, NCLB and the Achievement Gap, Neuroscience, and more interactive and engaged learning opportunities for students.
