Overview

Written by the author of highly effective psychology texts relied on by thousands of teachers and students, John Santrock's Educational Psychology combines the most up-to-date, cutting-edge research and educational programs with coverage of contemporary topics such as diversity, technology, and developmental issues. Taking a constructivist approach, Santrock seamlessly weaves this innovative new material with more traditional topics.

In addition to its evident and solid constructivist emphasis, Educational Psychology also stresses a developmental perspective, covering not only elementary education, but also early childhood and secondary education � and draws on Santrock's extensive writing in developmental psychology. Detailed applications to teaching immediately follow each concept and theory. Teaching Strategies sections spell out step-by-step best-practice plans for successful classroom use of the research discussed in the text.

Educational Psychology includes authentic teacher and student voices � the observations, comments, and stories of a diverse group of award winning classroom teachers and their students in such features as Teaching Stories, Through the Eyes of Teachers, and Through the Eyes of Children. Technology is addressed in a dedicated chapter (Chapter 10) and in Technology and Education boxed features. Approximately 15-30 times each chapter Internet icons in the text margins signal an extension to the Santrock Online Learning Center Web site.
