Summary: This text provides a comprehensive, manageable overview of current major educational psychological learning theories and issues and analyzes implications for the teaching process.

As we begin the 21st Century, Allyn & Bacon joins with renowned scholars to recognize the contributions its texts have made to the field of education. "Allyn & Bacon Classics in Education" honors those authors and books that have made significant advancements in
student understanding and appreciation of the discipline. Each title in the series begins with a new, in-depth Foreword, written by one of today's top scholars, which contains a brief biography of the text's author and analyzes the text's historical and enduring contributions.

Adopting the idea that "there are no final answers to questions concerning school learning," this text encourages teachers to develop their own learning theories and test them in terms of classroom reactions, structure, and the adequacy of supporting evidence. Learning Theories for Teachers enables student teachers to use learning theory to better understand their students and alter teaching methods accordingly.

Features :
  • A new Foreword by Samuel Shermis introduces the text.
  • Provides comprehensive and balanced treatment of multiple learning theories.
  • Renowned for its direct, clear presentation of often-difficult material.
  • Eleven different learning theories are developed, including historical and contemporary perspectives.
  • Expanded coverage of cognitive field psychology has been retained (Ch. 9).
  • Includes material on "Teaching for Understanding" reflects trends in educational psychology.
  • Historical analysis of learning theories helps students grasp and clarify points of confusion in modern education.
  • Discussion of problem-centered understanding helps students recognize and evaluate reflective, problem-centered teaching and learning.
