Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

An essential resource for understanding the main principles, concepts, and research findings of key theories of learning–especially as they relate to education–this proven text blends theory, research, and applications throughout, providing readers with a coherent and unified perspective on learning in educational settings. 

 

Key features of the text include:

  • Vignettes at the start of each chapter illustrating some of the principles discussed in the chapter, examples and applications throughout the chapters, and separate sections on instructional applications at the end of each chapter.
  • A new chapter on Self-Regulation (Chapter 9).
  • Core chapters on the neuroscience of learning (Chapter 2), constructivism (Chapter 6), cognitive learning processes (Chapter 7), motivation (Chapter 8), and development (Chapter 10) all related to teaching and learning.
  • Updated sections on learning from technology and electronic media and how these advancements effectively promote learning in students (Chapters 7 & 10)
  • Detailed content-area learning and models of instruction information form coherence and connection between teaching and learning in different content areas, learning principles, and processes (Chapters 2-10).
  • Over 140 new references on the latest theoretical ideas, research findings, and applications in the field.

The citations show that this book was probably most current a decade ago. There does not appear to have been an effort to fully update it since. Pretty expensive under the circumstances.

I bought this item for college. I got it on time, it was in good shape, and nothing was missing from the textbook. This was exactly as I expected. I had no problems whatsoever and recommend it.

This book is fine, but I don't love it the way I love Martinez's text.

This book was hard to follow an just not very interesting. I would have thought that a book about learning would have poctures and graphs and color. Nothing.
