Using Educational Psychology in Teaching is a case-based, balanced, and applied approach to educational psychology. It helps you learn to apply educational psychology theories and research to your own classroom practice. This book uses an integrated-case approach, where every chapter begins with a true-life classroom case study. The case is then woven throughout the chapter, highlighting practical ways the chapter content can be applied in real classrooms.

The 12th Edition presents cognitive learning theory and student motivation in a more straightforward, understandable way. Enhanced diversity coverage, new strategies to promote academic recovery, and additional examples reflect the most current research and trends in K to 12 classrooms.
