I added this to my list of read books because I felt I needed some recognition of the pain and suffering I went through in reading this for a college course.
While I did learn a little, I didn't even know it was possible to fit so many words on one page. I read the first few chapters word for word, and by chapter 8, I gave up and just started using the study guide my professor gave.
If you must read this book for class, I hope that you are offered study hints like I was. If you are reading this
The information is great and I would even say that Woolfolk's writing is okay. However, the text itself is every student's worst nightmare. The chapters are quite long and the pages are filled with tiny text that is hard enough to read sometimes, just because of the subject matter, without the added intimidation from the layout! I did not get to look at the modular edition but I feel like that would be a huge benefit to anyone trying to work through this text. If you are serious about reading th ...more

Libro de texto de la clase Psicología del Aprendizaje con el profesor Jorge H. Larrache.

Un buen libro sobre la psicología educativa. Explica las diferentes teorías del aprendizaje que actualmente se utilizan. Da ejemplos de situaciones que se puedan presentar en el salón de clase o que le puedan estar ocurriendo a los estudiantes y posibles soluciones de como manejar las mismas.

Adicional a esto, cada capítulo tiene una sección llamada "Aprobar PRAXIS" la cual está dedicada a proveerle las herra
Maybe the book I read? There are quite a few texts called Educational Psychology!
This is a very valuable textbook for those going into teaching. There is so much information in this book, which made it hard, but also will be a very good reference to go back to in the future. I liked the way the author wrote it, with lots of examples and personalized it at times, referring to herself and those she teaches.

My teacher told us to memorize everything in this textbook. Although she was kidding, I almost wish I could because there are so many concepts and ideas and helps that would

I read most of this book while sitting in my educational psychology class (pretending to listen to my boring professor). I found it to be both interesting and insightful since it balanced facts and theory with practical "how-to" solutions for dealing with particular kinds of adolescent behaviors. I also liked that the book focused more on concepts than actual science of how the brain works -- the scientific crap is what put me to sleep in my undergrad psych classes.
This is the second and primary required text for my current online class. It's way too big! Thankfully I don't have to read it in its entirety. Insightful and fairly interesting so far, but I'd rather be spending my reading time on other books.

Finally finished w/ the class! (A+) The professor wasn't very good, but the material was pretty helpful. A lot of redundancy w/ other classes I've already taken though.
Wolfe Tone
Boring and shallow, skimming over interesting points, not taking any stands and treating its readers as complete morons. This is one of those typical standard works for many social studies, because it contains most of the theories in a certain field of work. But I would sooner pick a few of those theories based on wikipedia for all I care, and study the original works, because this just doesn't cut it.

Shelves: education
belum baca seluruhnya, karena bahasa inggris. tapi yang pasti ini buku tutop lah. biar kita dituntun jadi guru yang baik, istilahnya dia penuntunnya.. biar kita tetep di rel kita... hai guru guru. bacalah.. biar kita jadi guru yang MANUSIAWI. gimana kita bantu mahasiswa untuk bisa meraih tujuannya yang di awang2 dengan selangkah-selangkah. dan tentunya bisa menghasilkan sesuatu yang lebih baik.
For a textbook, this was pretty good. The information was actually relevant and at the end of each chapter was a summary of the key points of the chapter, which made it easy to find the information again. Some of it was a bit too vague but for the most part it's a useful book on educational psychology.

This was a very well organized and practical book. It was very useful for studying for the Praxis as well as feeling more prepared for teaching in general. It was easy to read and did not feel like a chore, I can see myself turning back to this book again and again.
This book was organized well and had a lot of helpful tables and guides for use in teaching.
This textbook was easier to follow than most that I have used.
Covers the material in a clear but extremely basic manner.
