Publisher Comments:

“The writing is great, the coverage of learning topics unparalleled.”

–Nancy Knapp, University of Georgia

“I have used this text for six years, and it has gotten better with each edition.”

–Catherine Rivoira, East Carolina University

This best-selling, classic text provides beginning teachers with the tools and inspiration to become masters of their chosen profession. The Tenth Edition maintains the lucid writing style for which the author is renowned, combined with a clear emphasis on educational psychology's practical relevance. This edition provides an especially helpful new chapter on Engaged Learning: Cooperation and Community, recognizing the challenges educators face in the next decade to keep all students connected to learning and all schools safe and compassionate.


The most applied text on the market, this text is replete with examples, lesson segments, case studies, and practical ideas from experienced teachers. In addition, at the end of the text is The Handbook for Teaching and Lifelong Learning. The four sections of this handbook will give your students even more tools for passing licensure tests, getting a job, and teaching well, no matter what surprises come their way. The four sections include:


• “Creating a Praxis II™/Licensure Examination Study Guide”: a chapter-by-chapter map for using this text as a personal study guide for licensing tests such as the PRAXIS.

• “Standards and Licensure: Praxis II™ and INTASC”: detailed correlations to PRAXIS II™ exam topics addressed in the 10th edition of the text.

• “Getting a Job: Job Interview Questions That Educational Psychology Will Help You Answer”: suggested by superintendents and principals as questions they like to ask during interviews to select teachers.

• “Enhancing Your Expertise: Continuing your Learning”: real experiences of practicing teachers, along with guidance about how to develop your expertise by exploring the World Wide Web.


For the first time, this text will appear in a “MyLabSchool Edition,” so every copy will include an access code to a special version of Allyn and Bacon’s hugely popular MyLabSchool, a collection of web-based resources for teacher candidates. This special site will contain the following:


An electronic version of the text (an ‘ebook’) which contains chapter review quizzes after each section, and the capacity to generate an “individualized study plan,” whereby students’ quiz answers are graded, and they are directed to specific pages and sections in the text that will help them correct erroneous answers and master the material.

A rich collection of video clips showing theoretical concepts and teaching methods in practice in real classrooms.

A Lesson Plan/Portfolio Builder, which provides templates for lesson plans and portfolios and a database of state teaching standards that can be correlated to students’ work by specific state, subject area, and grade level.

Access to Research Navigator, an extensive database of academic research journals and helpful advice on writing and formatting research papers.

See the inside back cover for access to [Insert MyLabSchool logo] - a powerful set of online tools that bring the classroom to life!
