Key features
New to This Edition:

  • Research is updated throughout the text and includes over 325 new references across the 25 modules.
  • A table of diversity coverage indicates where coverage of diversity appears throughout the modules.
  • A Letter to the Instructor from the authors describes how EdPsych Modules differs from other educational psychology textbooks and shares how the authors themselves use the different modules in practice.
  • The Fourth Edition features the same 25 modules within eight themed units but with important updates, including:
    • Expanded discussion of gender to include cisgender and transgender (Module 1).
    • Research on the cyberbullying in the context of peer relationships and classroom management (Modules 2 and 17).
    • Inclusion of research and application of technology to development and classroom management (Module 9 and 17).
    • Updated research on the importance of parent-child interactions for early language experience and intellectual growth (Modules 7 and 20).
    • Revised and expanded coverage of response-to-intervention for identification of specific learning disabilities (Module 21).

Key Features:

  • The modules and case studies are designed to work as standalone content and can be combined or organized in any order.
  • The case approach and the extensive pedagogy that supports it allows students to continually see the applications of the theories and research that they are studying.
  • The book contains coverage of traditional Educational Psychology topics, such as cognitive development and instructional methods, as well as more contemporary topics such as the role of the brain in learning and response-to-intervention.
  • The book offers more in-depth coverage of topics only minimally covered in chapter textbooks such as constructivist teaching approaches, intelligence, grouping practices, and metacognition.
  • Diversity—characteristics such as sex, gender, race, language, disability status, and socioeconomic background—is woven throughout each module as it treated not as a separate topic but as a facet of most instructional situations.
    Assess
    questions at the end of each case study
    prompt students to assess their existing knowledge and to identify assumptions, preconceptions, and personal beliefs prior to reading a particular module.
  • Reflect and Evaluate questions at the end of each module are based on the case studies at the beginning of each unit and encourage students to check their comprehension of important concepts, to apply what they have learned about the research presented in the modules, and to evaluate the situations and instructional decisions presented in the case.
  • Applications sections help students tie theory and research to educational practice. Coverage is focused on evidence-based teaching methods and principles that are linked to research.
  • Personal touches are integrated throughout the textbook, in addition to many other real-life examples from the authors’ research and collaboration with schools, providing students with knowledge that is truly grounded within authentic educational contexts.
