For Introduction to Educational Psychology courses.
Revised and expanded, this is the new edition of the most applied introduction to educational psychology on the market today. Long recognized for its groundbreaking innovations in placing educational psychology firmly within the context of classrooms, this text examines every educational psychology theory—learning, motivation, and development—and every pertinent concept through the viewpoint of the teacher. Once again in this edition, the authors' hallmark cases, in both written and videotape format, introduce real-world applications in a way that no other text can, truly fulfilling the promise of its title to give students a “window” on the classrooms in which they will someday teach.

Case-Based. One of the defining features of this text is that it stands above the others in the frequency of references to its opening case studies. They are richly integrated, elaborated—and now illustrated—throughout the chapter. Chapters end with another case and questions that offer students opportunities to apply chapter content to classroom settings and to practice answering test items to prepare them for the PRAXIS II™ exam. Many text case studies have accompanying video cases.
Exceptionally Applied. Every theory and concept presented is examined through its application in classrooms. Features such as Classroom Connections and Instructional Strategies lay out very concrete guidelines for applying key chapter content. Applications are also present in the margin notes.
Filled with Practice for PRAXIS™. Prepare your students for the PRAXIS II™ (Principles of Learning and Teaching) exam with practice features in the text and website. End-of-chapter case questions provide students with opportunities to answer assessment items to prepare them for the PRAXIS II™ exam. The "Practice for PRAXIS™" module on the website provides suggested responses to those questions. A new Appendix ties the content in the book to the PRAXIS II™.
Expanded with Key Content Changes. This new edition offers significantly expanded coverage in three key areas—knowledge construction, motivation, and assessment. A new Chapter 8 addresses "Constructing Understanding" and two chapters each are now devoted to motivation and assessment.
