  • New Chapter 13, Teaching for Self-Regulation, Creativity, and Tolerance recognizes that there is more to schooling than academics and educational psychology has much to say about important non-academic outcomes.

Other topics include cooperative learning, conflict resolution, and classroom communities.
  • Reaching Every Student. In every chapter, these boxes present ideas for assessing, teaching, and motivating ALL of the students in today's diverse classroom.
  • Enhancing Expertise: Technology and Professional Development. One section in every chapter describes how to use the World Wide Web to continue learning after the course and throughout teaching<&#151>carefully chosen Web sites and guidance for using them.
  • Passing the Praxis. Every chapter contains helpful tips as students prepare for licensure examinations which may be required in their state and begin to develop a personal study guide for such examinations.
  • Standards and Licensure Appendix: Praxis II and INTASC. Students can refer to this Appendix at the end of the book for detailed correlations to Praxis II exam topics addressed in the text.
  • Stop/Think/Write. Prompts throughout each chapter provide "minds-on experiences," connected to possible student assignments such as interactive journals.
  • What Would You Say? Two or three times in every chapter students are asked how they would answer possible job interview questions based on the text material. Suggested by practicing principals and superintendents around the country, these questions help students see that the principles of educational psychology apply to teaching and even to getting a teaching job.
