The Eighth Edition of this popular text from renowned educational psychologist Robert Slavin translates theory into practices that teachers can use in their classrooms with a further inquiry into the concept of intentionality and a thorough integration of standards. Every copy of the book now comes automatically packaged with a MyLabSchool eBook and an additional capter of material that highlights current issues and emerging trends in the field of educational psychology. This edition continues to have in-depth, practical coverage with a focus on the intentional teacher by presenting up-to-the-minute research that a reflective, intentional teacher can apply. An "intentional teacher," according to Slavin, is one who constantly reflects on his or her practice and makes instructional decisions based on a clear conception of how these practices affect students. To help readers become "intentional teachers," the author offers a set of questions to guide them and models best practices through classroom examples. Firmly rooted in research, up-to-date theory, and classroom-tested applications, Educational Psychology prepares teachers as no other text does. It teaches them to think about how students develop and learn, to make decisions before and during instruction, and to consider what constitutes evidence that their students are learning and succeeding. This edition includes a new focus on reflection, new cases, sections on brain research, programs for language minority students, technology, No Child Left Behind, and after school and summer school programs. It contains new critiques of assessment and accountability strategies and a substantially updated treatment of programming for students with special needs. The Emerging Trends Update Edition package still contains the highly acclaimed 8th edition of Bob Slavin's Educational Psychology: Theory and Practice. In addition to the main text, every student copy comes packaged with an additional chapter of material that highlights the latest issues and trends in the field of educational psychology including NCLB, accountability, the achievement gap, and brain research. Also included: MyLabSchool activities linked to every chapter of the text, including the new Ch. 15, Current Issues and Emerging Trends.
