Summary: While covering the basic concepts of psychological theory as it applies to education, child development, human learning and behavior, classroom management and assessment, this text is written from the point of view that teaching is both an art and a science. It is the first text to offer a practitioner-researcher model of teaching in which both pre-service and in-service teachers learn to integrate observational skills and hypothesis testing into their classroom teac morehing as a way of constantly checking research and theory against demonstrated results. Based on the practice of Action Research, it challenges students to become critical thinkers both as immediate consumers of teacher training courses and later as classroom teachers.


  • The author's unique emphasis on ''Action Research'' throughout the text helps students learn to become practitioner-researchers and understand that teaching is decision making.
  • Field Experience exercises in each chapter invite students to visit classrooms and observe teaching in action.
  • Introductory vignettes, You Make the Call, and Theory to Practice features encourage critical thinking.
  • Case illustrations, including examples from the film ''Stand and Deliver'', provide multiple examples of the theory and concepts discussed in each chapter and highlight the variety and scope of the types of decisions all teachers are required to make.
  • Pedagogical aids in every chapter, such as Chapter Objectives, Concept Maps, Key Terms, and Chapter Summaries reinforce material in the text.
  • Connections in every chapter offer opportunities for using the Internet to obtain the most up-to-date information in the area of educational psychology and the world of the teacher.
  • Reflections from the Field provide real world examples of the principles and theories discussed in each chapter.
  • Teacher's Toolbox exercises show educational research and theory in action, particularly in urban settings and/or with diverse student populations.
  • Chapter 11 features a unique coverage of planning as a key component of teacher competence and success. less
