The Social Psychology of the Classroom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Unlike books on classroom management, this book on the social psychology of interactions in the classroom covers relevant theory and research, students' and teachers' nonverbal communication, the effects of teacher expectations (including the teacher's pet phenomenon), sociometric measurement in the classroom, the social structure of the student society, and the social psychology of educating and changing students. A section on classroom management reviews historical trends and contemporary approaches, and presents a behavioral analysis of common pitfalls in classroom management. Empirical research is presented in simple statistical language, and complex statistical results are avoided. Methodological issues are discussed in depth, such as the difference between high-inference and low-inference educational research, and the differences between affective and cognitive sociometric measurement. The book will be of interest to students and scholars of educational studies and educational psychology, as well as pre- and in-service teachers, psychologists, counselors, and educators. Babad is professor of educational and social psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Teachers often find that their training has not provided them with sufficient knowledge and understanding about underlying social forces and processes in their classrooms. Elisha Babad addresses this gap by examining the social psychology of the classroom and facilitating the application of social psychological knowledge in the classroom.

Synopsis:

Teachers often find that their training has not provided them with sufficient knowledge and understanding about underlying social forces and processes in their classrooms. This new book addresses this gap by focusing on the social psychology of the classroom, providing the relevant social psychological knowledge and facilitating the application of that knowledge in the practice of the teacher in the classroom. Elisha Babad discusses "the state of the art" of classroom management theory, research and practice and explores a full range of teacher and classroom experiences (such as teachers' differential behavior in the classroom and its psychological price, students' roles and relationships, and distinguishing between "educating" students and "changing" students). This exceptional book will be of interest to students and scholars of educational studies and educational psychology as well as for teachers-in-training, experienced teachers, and "educators-at-large."
