Intended for teachers, researchers, and graduate students of
education, this hefty reference covers both traditional and emerging
areas of concern. Thirty-three contributed chapters, arranged in five
sections, begin with coverage of the psychological foundations for
thinking, learning, and motivation, and the developmental and
individual differences in these domains. Subsequent sections focus on
curriculum and instruction, taking into account issues of ethnicity,
gender, grouping and tracking, cooperative learning, bilingualism,
and testing methods. The final chapters discuss research methods and
other foundational issues.
