Educational Psychology: Developing Learners is known for its exceptionally clear and engaging writing, its in-depth focus on learning, and its extensive concrete applications. Its unique approach helps students understand concepts by examining their own learning and then showing them how to apply these concepts as teachers. More than any other educational psychology text, this text moves seamlessly between theory and applications, features the most extensive and integrated coverage of diversity, contexts of learning, neuropsychology and brain development, and classroom applications of technology. It includes innumerable concrete examples to help readers connect educational psychology to real children and classrooms. From reviews of the book: "Rather than simply presenting the necessary content, the author makes you feel like she is talking directly to you...I love that diversity that has been woven throughout the fabric of this text...Ormrod's personalized writing style will reach undergraduate students in a way that few authors can. [The book] is concise, yet thorough; comprehensive, yet unpretentious." --Angela Bloomquist, California University of Pennsylvania 'Compared to other texts, Ormrod's text is written in a more accessible way...Strengths [include] accessibility, good use of supplementary materials, [and] updated research." --David Yun Dai, University at Albany, SUNY "Love how each chapter discusses diversity and special needs! ...Most students keep this text throughout their teaching careers as a resource. Of all the educational psychology textbooks that I've used, this one is the most comprehensive and interactive with vivid examples...The supplemental materials are very useful. The power point is extensive and easy to use for lecture. I use the test bank materials and find the questions to be aligned with students' licensure exams." --Cindy Ballantyne, Northern Arizona University Note: MyEducationLab does not come automatically packaged with this text.

Jeanne Ellis Ormrod received her A.B. in psychology from Brown University and her M.S. and Ph.D. in educational psychology from The Pennsylvania State University. She earned licensure in school psychology through postdoctoral work at Temple University and the University of Colorado at Boulder and has worked as a middle school geography teacher and school psychologist. She was Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Northern Colorado until 1998, when she moved east to return to her native New England. She has published numerous research articles on cognition and memory, cognitive development, and giftedness but is probably best known for this book and four others: Human Learning (currently in its sixth edition); Essentials of Educational Psychology (currently in its third edition); Child Development and Education (co-authored with Teresa McDevitt, currently in its fifth edition); and Practical Research (co-authored with Paul Leedy, currently in its tenth edition). She has also recently published a non-textbook for a broad audience: Our Minds, Our Memories: Enhancing Thinking and Learning at All Ages. With her three children now grown and out on their own, she lives in New Hampshire with her husband Richard.
