Focused on the “big ideas” of educational psychology, Essentials of Educational Psychology presents the core concepts and research-based strategies that are most directly applicable to teaching and learning.  Full of classroom applications and strategies for planning and carrying out instruction, assessment, and classroom management, this unique text helps readers understand how to facilitate learning as teachers.  This interactive, media-rich text also is unique in its ability to help readers see and understand their own learning. 



From reviews of the book:


“I do not think anyone can write to an undergraduate like Jeanne Ormrod can.”


         —Deborah Switzer, Clemson University


“Many similar textbooks suffer from the "everything, including the kitchen sink" problem. This is a mostly-lean and focused text. . . . The extensive examples help with clarity. . . . [And I] appreciate how a chapter starts with theory and research, and ends with lots and lots of useful strategies. This book really matches its subtitle [“Big Ideas to Guide Effective Teaching”].   I . . . greatly value the Cultural Considerations box in each chapter. . . [and] plan to make time to come back and study them again, to improve both how I teach and what I teach my students about learner differences.”


          —Kym Buchanan, University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point



“I see students in my class who are not able to do well in other courses . . . get high grades in this course partly due to the textbook. This text is written in a . . . way for students to get the main points of the material and connect them with real-life examples. In this way, they are able to quickly become successful at understanding the material in a practical and applicable way.  This text . . . is [also]a good study tool to use when preparing for licensure exams.”


         —Kimberlee Taylor, Utah State University
