The sixth edition of this popular text from renowned educational psychologist Robert Slavin translates theory into practices that teachers can use in their own classrooms by introducing the concept of intentionality. An "Intentional Teacher," according to Slavin, is one who constantly reflects on his or her practices and makes instructional decisions based on a clear conception of how these practices affect students. To help readers become "Intentional Teachers," the author offers a set of questions to guide them and models best practices through classroom examples.Firmly rooted in research, up-to-date theory, and classroom-tested applications, Educational Psychology prepares teachers as no other text does. It teaches them to think about how students develop and learn, to make decisions before and during instruction, and to consider what constitutes evidence that their students are learning and succeeding.
