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."

Educational Psychology: Theory and Practice (10th Edition)

Publication Date:2011-01-14
List Price:$194.00

Description:

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.

From reviews of the book:

“I polled my students . . . and the vast majority actually liked the textbook (which is rare). They find it easy to read, interesting and engaging. . . .  This textbook’s major strengths are its cognitive perspective, its readability, and the fact that it puts into practice some of the information-processing strategies that it teaches as effective ways to process information. . . .”
            —Elizabeth Pemberton, University of Delaware 

 

“[T]he text is written in a . . . conversational style that invites students to actively explore complex questions about teaching and learning.  It is well-organized, supported with visual aids, and various learning tools, such as guidelines, reflection activities, and cases presenting opposing viewpoints.  Most importantly, the text is informed and well supported by contemporary scholarship in the field of educational psychology.”

From reviews of the book:

“Rather than simply presenting the necessary content, the author makes you feel like she is talking directly to you. . . .  I love that diversity that has been woven throughout the fabric of this text. . . .  Ormrod’s personalized writing style will reach undergraduate students in a way that few authors can. [The book] is concise, yet thorough; comprehensive, yet unpretentious.”

--Angela Bloomquist, California University of Pennsylvania

 

‘Compared to other texts, Ormrod’s text is written in a more accessible way. . . .  Strengths [include] accessibility, good use of supplementary materials, [and] updated research.”

--David Yun Dai,  University at Albany, SUNY

 

“Love how each chapter discusses diversity and special needs! . . . Most students keep this text throughout their teaching careers as a resource.  Of all the educational psychology textbooks that I’ve used, this one is the most comprehensive and interactive with vivid examples. . . . The supplemental materials are very useful. The power point is extensive and easy to use for lecture.  I use the test bank materials and find the questions to be aligned with students’ licensure exams.”
