Educational Psychology Casebook is a collection of original cases based on real scenarios that span the K-12 curriculum helping students apply their learning of educational psychology. This text has 25 cases and includes a helpful theory guide. These real-life scenarios can be used to apply theory to the classroom when field experiences are not feasible. Each case concludes with thought-provoking questions, references and further readings and suggestions for using helpful video segments from MyLabSchool. The cases are described by content and level in a detailed Table of Contents and all cases indicate how they apply to NCATE teacher certification standards.
