It is gratifying that the first four editions of Educational Psychology have been so wellreceived. Preparing the fifh edition has been both highly rewarding and challenging:rewarding because I continue to learn so much more about educating students andbecause the feedback from students and instructors has been consistently enthusiastic; a challenge because of the need to continue meeting or exceeding instructorsexpectations and keeping the material fresh and up to date.
Written by the author of highly effective psychology texts that are relied upon by thousands of teachers and students, John Santrock’s Educational Psychology excels in showing future teachers how to put theory into practice. The text reflects the voices of today’s teachers and students, and includes numerous case studies to help pre-service teachers understand how to apply educational psychology. It covers the latest research and offers fully integrated technology and supplement programs to support student learning. A new panel of thirteen expert education consultants participated in the text’s development, ensuring the most comprehensive, up-to-date coverage.
