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

Recommends it for: teachers!
Recommended to Anna by: my professor
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.

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 book was organized well and had a lot of helpful tables and guides for use in teaching.
Covers the material in a clear but extremely basic manner.
