Educational Psychology (EHEP000746) cover image
Educational Psychology First Edition by Roxana Moreno will help your students meet the challenges of today’s classrooms.  Future teachers want practical suggestions for why and how to use theory in the classroom. To support their preparation, this textbook emphasizes three challenges in teacher education: understanding and addressing the needs of the diversity of learners in the classroom, applying theories and research to the classroom, and critically examining teaching practices through reflection, problem-solving, and critical thinking.

This text includes several methods to reinforce learning including;

  • the opportunity to engage in the valuable exercise of reflecting regularly upon personal assumptions and critically examining the effectiveness of teaching practices with the range of students with whom they are involved,
  • two types of cases encourage the application of educational psychology theory and research to teaching situations, and
  • pedagogical elements such as chapter opening graphic organizers and connections across chapters help future teachers organize their professional knowledge. 

With Educational Psychology by Roxana Moreno, future teachers will begin to learn to think, to teach.
