This comprehensive educational psychology book blends a strong scholarly and theoretical background with the application of theories and concepts using real-world examples, case studies, and practical teaching strategies. The text's innovative pedagogical program is anchored by a cohesive learning objective system integrated throughout each chapter, guiding your reading and reinforcing your understanding of concepts. This edition includes access to the book's website, Education CourseMate, where you can participate in Virtual Psychology Labs. Introduced in the text, the labs illuminate key experiments that are not easily explained in a book or demonstrated in the classroom. These first-hand research experiences allow you to gain a better understanding of the experiments' methodologies, conclusions, and implications. TeachSource Video Cases, introduced in the text and available at CourseMate, allow you to view real-life classroom scenarios that demonstrate teaching applications and best practices. Among other distinctive aspects of the text are an entire chapter on group process and a unique "Think It Over" feature that asks you to reflect on important topics as both a student of psychology and a future classroom teacher.
