Show synopsis For an introductory course in educational psychology Educational Psychology: Windows on Classrooms, Ninth Edition, helps future teachers apply the theory and research of educational psychology to increase student learning and development. Educational Psychology: Windows on Classrooms is the most applied book in the field. If you're looking for a book that gives you a sound theoretical and research-based foundation and then provides specific and concrete illustrations and guidelines for applying this theory and research with your students, this is the book for you. The book uses an integrated-case approach, with integrated being the key idea. Each chapter begins with a case study taken from actual classroom practice. But, unlike other books described as case-based, instead of stopping there, Eggen and Kauchak then weave the case throughout each chapter-extracting specific illustrations from it, and in some instances taking dialogue directly from the case-to illustrate classroom applications of the theory and research. Eggen and Kauchak include many other concrete examples, taken both from classrooms and from daily living, to illustrate the content of each chapter. The combination of these applications is what makes the book unique.
