For undergraduate and graduate courses in cognition/instruction in education and in applied psychology departments.
This current and contemporary text uses cognitive psychology research to inform and improve classroom instruction.
Developed on the landmark idea that knowledge of cognitive psychology gives teachers a deeper understanding of educational goals as well as an improved ability to design educational interventions that motivate and engage students, the new fifth edition of Cognitive Psychology and Instruction is revised to include the latest research and most contemporary perspectives in the field.
Tying cognitive psychology and motivation theory with classroom practice, this best-selling text applies recent research findings to real-life teaching and student learning. Part One includes comprehensive coverage of the basic principles of cognitive psychology followed by an investigation of the role of beliefs and motivation in cognitive processes and learning in Part Two. Part Three of the text examines how cognitive and motivational research informs teaching and learning in specific content areas.
Sections on assessment of cognitive and motivational processes in each chapter introduce readers to the importance of cognitive perspectives on assessment and alerts them to the controversies that surround standards and assessment approaches.
Significant revisions in Part One of the text provides readers with a solid and integrated framework for the entire book that covers the basic principles of cognitive psychology, the role of motivation, and subject area-specific chapters.
· A rewritten Chapter 2 (Sensory, Short-Term, and Working Memory) presents the key dimensions of the modal memory model and introduces students to the most recent research on memory, learning and cognition. The revised chapter includes a new section on neuropsychology and the memory processes.
An updated and expanded end-of-text glossary defines major terms in cognitive psychology and helps familiarize students with the highly-specific nomenclature of the field.
