Literally my manuel or "bible" for teaching and pedagogy. A must read for every educator!!

Despite being packed with instrumental information for upcoming teachers, this book is nearly impossible to get though. It is boring, dry and wy too long. Much of the information here is redundant as many of the vignettes re-state info that was already written in the same chapters.

This is a very good text. It includes lots of extra ideas and information in an easy to use format.

As this is the only one of these I've read, and I'm a student, its hard to be fair in the appraisal. On the up side, if you're being forced to read this because you're training to be a teacher, it does put a lot of effort into explaining why you should care and how this stuff might vary based on the grade of the student.

Fantastic readability for a textbook. I read this for my online class, and the style was developed enough to keep me interested and there were plenty of engaging activities to illustrate the principles. I learned the whole class on my own with just this book. The author also does a great job addressing diversity in the classroom, something that was left out in my other courses. This was pretty much the only book I got to read this semester, but I can actually say I enjoyed it.

Overall good textbook on Educational Psychology, and I feel that I learned a lot of useful information. Only one complaint, the author uses the statement "and so on" a bit too often throughout the book.

I especially felt that the last chapter of the book would be of interest to many people outside of the educational setting, such as parents and legislators who determine the reasoning behind "high-stakes" testing with regards to school and teacher accountability.

As text books go, this was not a bad textbook. The author attempts to make the material interesting by including anecdotes from her own life and experience, and opening each section with a case study.
