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.
