Summary

Educational Psychology in Context: Readings for Future Teachers takes an exciting new approach to educational psychology by addressing the questions that real teachers in real schools ask about real students. This book's purpose is to provide a stimulating alternative to traditional texts by helping teachers develop a strong theoretical and research-based understanding of how their students learn and develop. Unlike other texts, this book of major readings is an anthology of primary-source readings selected for students entering the teaching profession and for teachers interested in examining learning and development. Bruce A. Marlowe and Alan S. Canestrari feature the original research and writing of the leading psychologists, cognitive scientists, and educators whose published work forms the very foundation of the field of educational psychology.   Key Features: Distinctive Approach: Features original research from classic primary source documents by well-known psychologists and educators, as well as the work of contemporary researchers that extends our understanding of child development and learning Thematic Organization: The published research is organized thematically by teaching issues, lending itself to classroom dialogue, debate, and discussion Real-World Experiences: Each reading is prefaced by a 'œLetter From the Field' written by practicing classroom teachers, creating a link between research and teachers' classroom issues Rich Pedagogy: Challenging questions help teachers develop a strong theoretical and research-based understanding of how their students learn and develop Self-Assessment: Classic experiments encourage teachers to read and think critically and to develop their own research-based teaching philosophy   The book is appropriate for courses in Educational Psychology, specifically Introduction to Educational Psychology, Learning Theory, Child/Adolescent Development, and Psychology of Learning at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
