Schools are no longer viewed as separate entities but function as an integral part of the range of services provided for children. Social Psychology and Education explores the implications of this, taking evidence from the latest international research into schools and reviewing policy in both the UK and other countries.Social Psychology and Education links research to specific educational and social issues and identifies the practical applications of social psychology for education today. Key topics which are covered include:- assessment and learning- attribution, motivation and raising aspirations- behaviour and social exclusion- culture community and creating learning environments- ethicsThroughout there is a focus on both individual and group issues, with relationships between individual factors such as pupils' self-concept and motivation and group factors such as their identification with peers, family and school, being explored.Aspects of day-to-day teaching and educational and social research are linked to provide a comprehensive picture of the social psychology of education in the 21st Century. There are exercises to assist learning, as well as guidance for further reading. This book will be invaluable for those studying the social psychology of human learning, performance and behaviour. It will also be highly relevant for teachers, educational psychologist and other professionals working with children.
