Slavin,   Educational Psychology: Theory and Practice, 10e 

 

The Tenth Edition of this popular text from renowned educational psychologist Robert Slavin translates theory into practices that teachers can use in their classrooms with a further inquiry into the concept of intentionality and a thorough integration of standards.

This edition continues to have in-depth, practical coverage with a focus on the intentional teacher by presenting up-to-the-minute research that a reflective, intentional teacher can apply. An “intentional teacher,” according to Slavin, is one who constantly reflects on his or her practice and makes instructional decisions based on a clear conception of how these practices affect students.

 

New to this edition:

  • Readers will encounter new material on important and emerging topics in the field, including: 21st Century Skills (Chapter 1 and new features throughout), language and literacy development in the elementary years (Chapter 2), new research on bilingual education (Chapter 4), emerging research in neuroscience (Chapter 6), expanded coverage on study strategies (Chapter 6), the latest research on cooperative learning (Chapter 8), new research on tutoring and small group remediation for struggling readers (Chapter 9), more on differentiated instruction (Chapter 9), new coverage of technology applications (Chapter 9), new sections on bullying and classroom management (Chapter 11), expanded coverage of response to intervention (Chapter 12), IEP’s (Chapter 12), expanded coverage on autism spectrum disorder (Chapter 12), additional coverage on value-added assessments (Chapter 14), and new information on testing accommodations for English learners (Chapter 14).The tenth edition also includes a new appendix that correlates the content of each chapter to corresponding topics within the Praxis Principles of Learning and Teaching Tests.
  • A MyEducationLab site specifically devoted to this edition of the text provides video, case studies, and other interactive media that serve as the basis of assignments. All online resources are supported by assessments and are highlighted at the end of each chapter.
  • Thoroughly updated citations ensure that the text is grounded in the most current research. The text has 656 new and updated references.  55% of all references are 2000 or later.
