9780415486903: The Psychology of Education

Written in an accessible and engaging style, this second edition of The Psychology of Education addresses key concepts from psychology which relate to education. Throughout the text the author team emphasise an evidence-based approach, providing practical suggestions to improve learning outcomes, while fictional case studies are used in this new edition to provide students with a sense of what psychological issues can look like in the classroom. Activities around these case studies give students the chance to think about how to apply their theoretical knowledge to these real-world contexts.

‘Key implications’ are drawn out at appropriate points, and throughout the book students are provided with strategies for interrogating evidence. Key terms are glossed throughout the book and chapters are summarised and followed by suggestions for further reading.

A chapter on Learning interactions and social worlds is new to this edition. The following chapters have all been extensively updated:

  • Learning
  • Assessment
  • Individual differences and achievement
  • Student engagement and motivation
  • The educational context
  • Society and culture
  • Language
  • Literacy
  • Inclusive education and special educational needs
  • Behaviour problems
  • Dealing with behaviour problems.

This book is essential reading for undergraduate students of Education Studies and Psychology as well as trainee teachers on BA, BEd and PGCE courses. It will also be of use to postgraduates training to be educational psychologists.

Review:

‘This text is invaluable for any student or psychologist looking to expand their understanding of psychological concepts as they relate to education.  I cannot praise this book enough for its superb depth and breadth of information, and how it integrates real world scenarios to help develop meaning for the reader.' Diahann Gallard, Senior Lecturer, Liverpool John Moores University, UK

"This book should not be on anyone's bookshelves - it should be at teachers' and students teachers' sides to revitalise and to clarify their professional principles and practice" - School Science Review, June 2011
