Are your students interested in how to understand and manage the daily dynamics of the classroom environment? Do you want to offer your students practical, concrete, realistic, field-tested action ideas to use in their own classrooms? Does your course cover cooperative learning, faculty collaboration, school restructuring, and educational reform? If so, look to Group Processes in the Classroom, Eighth Edition. For 30 years this classic text has provided pre- and in-service teachers with an understanding of group processes in the classroom. Now in its eighth edition, the text combines social-psychological theory and research with recent, teacher-created action ideas – the tested, down-to-earth practices of a generation of K-12 teachers – to show students how they can successfully apply well-researched group-process procedures in their own classrooms and schools. Group Processes in the Classroom, Eighth Edition is the only comprehensive text available on the social psychology of teaching and learning.
