Educational Psychology: Developing Learners

 
9780132359894: Educational Psychology: Developing Learners

A leading text for introductory educational psychology courses, Jeanne Ormrod’s Educational Psychology: Developing Learners 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 ideas and gives students an in-depth understanding of the central ideas of educational psychology.  It helps students truly see and better understand the children and adolescents they will one day teach. More than any other educational psychology text, this text moves seamlessly between theory and applications, features the most extensive and integrated coverage of diversity, and includes innumerable concrete examples–video cases, written cases, student artifacts, and more--to help students connect educational psychology to real children and classrooms. Some new features of the sixth edition include:

·          an even more accessible text with simplified, and more focused presentation of the core principles;

·          margin notes that highlight the core concepts and their applications to teaching;

·          an integrated text and media package that accompanies every new copy of the text that prepares students for their own classroom, supplemented by the Understanding Research and Building Teaching Skills Lab Manual on CD; an access code to Merrill’s Teacher Preparation Classroom Website (www.prenhall.com/teacherprep); and access to the new Ormrod Teacher Prep Course (www.prenhall.com/ormrod) which provides a Study Plan, a collection of Pretest and Posttest assessments supported by study material, homework and exercises for students to apply chapter content and build teaching skills.

The book’s six chapters on learning, wealth of practical applications, and innovative learning package make this the best text to prepare tomorrow’s teachers.

Review:

"[…] This is an excellent textbook in its comprehensiveness, depth of coverage, and realistic classroom applications. This is definitely one of the best textbooks currently available in the field."

-Rolando A. Santos, California State University, Los Angeles

 

“[…] The features included allow for students to achieve an understanding and application of principles […] Also, student resources are excellent. Students will be able to view the instructor as a guide, rather than one who must interpret the information because of the readability level and writing style used by the author.”

-Sharon Cordell, Roane State Community College

 

“We chose Ormrod because of its readability and emphasis on application in real classrooms, as well as the author’s efforts to actively engage the reader through suggested reflections and activities.”

-Pamela Kidder-Ashley, Ph.D., Appalachian State University

 

“Many (other) characteristics set Ormrod’s book apart from its competitors and contribute to its excellence: The writing style is lively. […] There are plentiful examples from actual teaching experiences that are good illustrations of their linked constructs. […]Ormrod understands that many students must pass state tests to be certified and is clearly conversant with state exam content. […] I am ecstatic to see diversity, developmental status, and special needs integrated into practically every chapter […] so that it is a part of the everyday life of the teacher. […] This text is definitely written for preservice teachers”

-Susan Carol Losh, Florida State University
