Summary

For graduate and upper-level courses in Educational Psychology.

As an editor and reviewer of the top journals in the field, the author is able to present the latest research in language that is accessible and understandable. Unlike other texts that are organized around theoretical topics valued by psychologists, it is organized around education problems and issues deemed important by educators.
