Read for VA Tech ITMA program. It's educational pyschology, what more should/need I say?
it is renowned book. i want to read
Yes, this a textbook, so naturally it is information-dense and dry at times. However, it was well-written and provides extremely useful information. Chapters covered topics such as theories of development, behavioral theories of learning, information processing and cognitive theories of learning, student-centered and constructivist approaches to learning, accommodating instruction to meet individual needs, the effective lesson, motivating students to learn, effective learning environments, and m ...more
Did not have this edition, but rather a "Pearson Custom" that culled from this book. It was ok, I learned some good stuff from it, but there were several concepts that were unclear, even after much class discussion. I shouldn't hold it against the book that the professor didn't know what the book was trying to say either, but it's hard for me to give high marks to a text that creates more confusion and doesn't resolve it.
I purchased the book in fair condition because i needed a book quickly for a summer class. It was good. it was fair condition and was very acceptable. i usually dont take the chance in ordering fair condition with highlighting but i did this time and it paid off. With the class being a summer class and fast passed, i just read the highlighted text instead of the whole helped tremendously.
I read this book for school. I found it very informational and got some very good ideas from reading the book.
Invaluable if you enter the classroom or simply want to understand students better as a parent or interested party. Clearly written, helpful, and broken down into manageable sections.
The only issue I had with this book was the fact that it looked like a dictionary, instead of a book. It helped me with theory and some tables were really good.
I've run out of clever things to say about my boring textbooks......but I finished the book and the class, so all I have to say is Yea!
