Overview

From renowned educational psychologist, Robert Slavin, the Tenth Edition of this popular text translates theory into practices that teachers can use in their classrooms with deeper inquiry into the concept of intentionality and a thorough integration of standards. This edition highlights current issues and emerging trends in the field of educational psychology.

The tenth edition continues to have in-depth, practical coverage with a focus on the intentional teacher by presenting up-to-the-minute research that a reflective, intentional teacher can apply. An “intentional teacher,” according to Slavin, is one who constantly reflects on his or her practice and makes instructional decisions based on a clear conception of how these practices affect students. To help readers become “intentional teachers,” the author offers a set of questions to guide them and models best practices through classroom examples.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From reviews of the text:

"The strength of this text is that it takes a tremendous amount of information about human growth and development and constructivist/student-centered teaching and condenses it down into a readable textbook complete with added resources and study skill strategies... a phenomenal task."

-- Jane Thielemann-Downs, University of Houston Downtown

"[This text] is an amazing work that provides real-world scenarios, key terminology, and descriptions that are easily read and explained. This author was able to interface policies and theories into the practice and help the learner to realize the relevance and the integrity of the profession of Education as whole. The quotes and explanations are on target and the use of Connection and Pointers are great ... the rich discussion on hard-to discuss topics were marvelous."

-- Shirlyn Garrett-Wilson, Chicago State University

    Good for the Basics

    I'm a prospective teacher and we had to use this book for our Educational Psychology class. It was easy to understand and highlights the main concepts. If I wasn't so rushed this semester it would have been enjoyable to read if only to better understand the subject matter.
