The best selling Educational Psychology text in a new, unique format!
Derived from Anita Woolfolk's market-leading Educational Psychology, Ninth Edition, the most thorough, accessible, and authoritative text on the market, this new Active Learning Edition breaks educational psychology content into manageable "modules." The Ninth Edition's 15 chapters now appear as 43 briefer modules, which are easy to cover in shorter academic terms and will make learning easier for students.
In addition to presenting comprehensive, expert coverage of all topics teachers need to understand about how students learn and all the classroom applications for which the author is justly renowned, the modules are grouped into clusters that allow for deeper context and background for each topic. Further, each module is a self-contained learning unit, with learning objectives and review questions ("Check Yourself") that provide immediate reinforcement of key concepts and build students' confidence in their grasp of the material.
