Developmental and Educational Psychology for Teachers brings together a range of evidence drawn from psychology to answer a number of critical educational questions, from basic questions of readiness – for example, when is a child ready for school, through to more complex matters, such as how does a teacher understand and promote good peer relationships in their classroom? The answers to these and other questions discussed draw here on the interplay between a teachers’ craft expertise and their knowledge of evidence and theory from developmental and educational psychology. Presenting a range of classic theories and contemporary research to help readers understand what the key issues are for teachers and other professionals, this book aides informed educational decisions in situations such as: inclusion, ability grouping, sex differences, developing creativity, home and peer influences on learning, and developing effective learners. Teachers in early years, primary and secondary settings are routinely faced with questions regarding the development of children. This not only relates to the planning and delivery of lessons, but also to the mental and physical wellbeing of the children and adolescents that they teach. The pedagogical features of this book are accessible and clearly presented, including focus questions that direct the reader’s attention to key issues, activity posts that point the reader to meaningful and relevant research and show the practical applications of material covered, and extension material that gives depth to many of the topics covered. This book aims to inform the practice of both in-service and trainee teachers, addressing issues that are relevant to their practice. With no other detailed and accessible text presenting this evidence and theory specifically for an audience of practicing and trainee teachers currently on the market, this book will be of essential reading to practicing and trainee teachers for early years, primary and secondary education and other related educational contexts such as educational psychologists, counsellors, paediatric and child doctors and nurses.

The field of critical studies recognizes that all knowledge is deeply embedded in idealogical, cultural, political, and historical contexts. Although this approach is commonly applied in other subfields of psychology. educational psychology has resisted a comprehensive critical appraisal. In Critical Educational Psychology, stephen Vassallo seeks to correct this deficit by demonstrating hw the psychology of learning is neither neutral nor value-free but rather bound by a host of contextual issues and assumptions. Vassallo invites educators, researchers, and psychologists to think broadly about the implications that their use of psychology has on the teaching and learning process. He applies a wide variety of interdisciplinary approaches to examine the psychology of learning, cognitive development, motivation, creativity, discipline, and attention. drawing on multiple perspectives within psychology and critical theory, he reveals that contemporary educational psychology is entangled in and underpinned by specific political, idealogical, historical, and cultural contexts.--Book cover.

Handbook of Educational Psychology and Students with Special Needs provides educational and psychological researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, and graduate students with critical expertise on the factors and processes relevant to learning for students with special needs. This includes students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, other executive function difficulties, behavior and emotional disorders, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, dyslexia, language and communication difficulties, physical and sensory disabilities, and more. With the bulk of educational psychology focused on "mainstream" or "typically developing" learners, relatively little educational psychology theory, research, measurement, or practice has attended to students with "special needs." As clearly demonstrated in this book, the factors and processes studied within educational psychology—motivation and engagement, cognition and neuroscience, social-emotional development, instruction, home and school environments, and more—are vital to all learners, especially those at risk or disabled. Integrating guidance from the DSM-5 by the American Psychiatric Association and the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) by the World Health Organization, this book synthesizes and builds on existing interdisciplinary research to establish a comprehensive case for effective psycho-educational theory, research, and practice that address learners with special needs. Twenty-seven chapters by experts in the field are structured into three parts on diverse special needs categories, perspectives from major educational psychology theories, and constructs relevant to special needs learning, development, and knowledge building.

Written to help readers understand and develop expertise in both teaching and learning, Educational Psychology focuses on the art and science necessary to become an expert teacher. Renowned scholars, Sternberg and Williams help readers capitalize on their strengths by integrating questions into the text that encourage analytical, creative, and practical thinking. This framework, based on Sternberg's triarchic theory of human intelligence, helps ensure that readers think deeply about what they are learning, rather than merely processing information at a superficial level. In addition, Educational Psychology also: Shows Readers How to Use Text Principles in the Classroom Expert Teacher Interviews illustrate the classroom application of chapter material. The Flexible Expert feature provides examples of solutions-analytical, creative, and practical-for daily challenges both students and teachers face in the classroom. Implications for Teaching illustrate the strategies expert teachers use in the classroom, using specific concepts of educational psychology. Encourages Reflective Thinking Thinking Questions-Thinking Analytically, Thinking Creatively, and Thinking Practically-appear throughout each chapter to encourage readers to think deeply about chapter concepts. Constructing Your Own Learning activities help readers understand constructivism by using the theory themselves to build upon what they have read in the text. Forum debates illustrate contested educational issues -such as homogenous versus heterogeneous grouping-and show that there are middle-ground positions between extreme views of the issues. Becoming an Expert: Questions and Problems, grouped by elementary, middle, and high school settings, invite readers to apply chapter concepts to the problems of classroom practice. Emphasizes Diversity, Helping Prepare Teachers for the Classrooms of Today and Tomorrow Guidelines for providing support for gifted students and students with disabilities are presented in Chapter 5: Individual Differences. The educational implications of socioeconomic, cultural, gender and linguistic diversity are discussed in detail in Chapter 6: Group Differences.
