From the Publisher:

A thorough, straightforward introduction to human learning. Presentation, topic choice, and language are intended for education majors, and included are a wealth of educational examples and applications. The well-balanced treatment of different perspectives on learning teaches students that each perspective has validity, and that different situations call for different approaches. While the background and roots of learning theory are thoroughly discussed, the emphasis is clearly on contemporary perspectives and developments.

From the Back Cover:

This leading book in learning theories explains principles and theories of human learning in a lucid and engaging fashion and lays out the application of those theories and principles to educational practice. Covers many topics throughout the book: chaining, cognitive aspects of applied behavior analysis, constructivist and contextual views of learning, effects of verbalization and enactment, dichotomies in long-term memory, mental theories, development of expertise, effects of alternative forms of assessment, self-regulated learning and epistemological beliefs, self-worth theory, and internalized motivation.
