9780131119802: Learning and Instruction: Theory into Practice

Core text for Learning Theory courses in Education Departments and Human Learning courses in Psychology Departments.

This comprehensive text takes a models approach by presenting separate chapters on individual theorists and perspectives. Within this well-organized structure, Gredler offers meticulouly accurate coverage of contemporary learning theories and their application to educational practice—including issues of readiness, motivation, problem-solving, and the social context for learning. Key content additions include increased emphases on the contributions of neuroscience and of Vygotsky’s work.

From the Back Cover:

THIS TEXT TAKES A MODELS APPROACH BY PRESENTING SEPAATE CHAPTERS ON INDIVIDUAL THEORIES AND PERSPECTIVES.

Learning and Instruction contains comprehensive coverage of all learning theory perspectives from behavioral to cognitive to social constructivist. Gredler's text takes a models approach by presenting separate chapters on individual theories and perspectives such as Piaget, Weiner, and Bandura.

  • Each major theory chapter now contains a new section titled "Relationships to Other Perspectives" that compares and contrasts each perspective with other theories of learning.
  • This edition now includes a current examination of neuroscience's contributions to learning theories.
  • The new Chapter 10 clarifies the concepts in Vygotsky's theory, specifically the role of the teacher and subject matter learning in cognitive development.
  • The text very clearly translates basic assumptions and principles into understandable guidelines for classroom instruction.
