286 pages, Illustrated
$67.50 Paper Original
This new text provides an engaging and stimulating introduction to the central concepts, themes and ongoing research in educational psychology today.
Education Psychology clearly and concisely presents the key ideas, but equally encourages undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students to go beyond the text to read primary sources, and to develop an awareness of the controversies, complexities, and unresolved issues in a topic area.
At the heart of the text is also an emphasis on developing the skills of how to read and use journal articles and how to critically evaluate sources of information.
