This text is appropriate for courses in Introduction to Educational Psychology.

This widely used text is known for its exceptionally clear and engaging writing, its in-depth focus on learning, and its extensive concrete applications. Its unique approach helps students understand concepts by encouraging them to examine their own learning and then showing them how to apply these concepts as teachers. The book concentrates on core concepts and principles and gives students an in-depth understanding of the central ideas of educational psychology. Its six chapters on learning, and the large amount of material to help students understand how they themselves learn, differentiates this text from others in the field.
