Description

For Educational Psychology courses

 

The most current, comprehensive view of educational psychology today

The Thirteenth Edition of Educational Psychology continues to emphasize the educational implications and applications of research on child development, cognitive science, learning, motivation, teaching, and assessment. Theory and practice are considered together, showing how information and ideas drawn from educational psychology research can be applied to solve the everyday problems of teaching. The text reflects the field as it offers unique and crucial knowledge to any who dare to teach, and to all who love to learn.

Features

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

 

●   Learn strategies to facilitate interactions with stakeholders. Guidelines for Family and Community Partnerships offer specific guidelines for involving families and organizations in children’s learning. (See page 313 for an example.)

●   Reflect on realistic classroom scenarios.  Teachers’ Casebook sections present students with realistic classroom scenarios at the beginning of each chapter and ask, “What would you do?” Responses from veteran teachers appear at the end of each chapter. (See pages 288 and 324 for examples.)

●   Address classroom diversity and individual student needs. Reaching Every Student sections present ideas for assessing, teaching, and motivating all students in today’s inclusive classrooms. (See page 315 for an example.)

●   Apply research directly to teaching.  Lessons for Teachers are succinct and usable principles for teaching based on the research. (See page 282 for an example.)

●   Consider multiple viewpoints on controversial questions.  Point/Counterpoint sections in each chapter present two perspectives on a controversial topic in the field of education. (See page 318 for an example.)

 

Key content changes include:

●    NEW: Incorporate current teaching research and models of teaching excellence. Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching, TeachingWorks from the University of Michigan, and the Gates Foundation Measure of Effective Teaching are introduced in Chapter 1 (see page 10); throughout the book, readers will find new sections on the Common Core and Understanding by Design (Chapter 14; see page 534), and sections on what teachers think about high-stakes testing, value-added assessment, and PARCC tests (Chapter 15; see page 603).

●    NEW: Learn the latest information on trending topics–the brain and neuroscience. Chapter 2 presents new information on the brain, synaptic plasticity (see p. 35), executive functioning (see p. 53), and implications of neuroscientific research for teaching (see p. 40).

●    UPDATED: Cover the impact of technology and virtual learning environments. Expanded coverage in Chapter 10 includes material on inquiry learning and teaching in a digital world (see p. 397), an example of a virtual learning environment (see p. 398), the use of games in teaching, and the initiative to teach computational thinking and coding (see p. 401).

●    UPDATED: Focus on diversity in today’s classrooms. Throughout the text, readers will find new material on individual and group differences, including sections on cultural differences in play and physical development among students with disabilities (Chapter 2; see p. 39); emergent literacy and language diversity (Chapter 5; see p. 177); coverage of homeless students, highly mobile students, and students living in poverty (Chapter 6; see p. 215); and opportunity gaps and stereotype threat (Chapter 6; see p. 227)
