The Praeger Handbook of Education and Psychology. Volume 4
Kincheloe, Joe L., Ed.; Raymond, Horn A., Ed.; Steinberg, Shirley R., Ed.
Cognition, mind, counseling psychology, lesson plans, learning styles, and Vygotsky are just a few of the many subjects discussed in this exciting work. Educators, students, counselors, parents, and others will find new understanding as they read and browse. How does the immigrant experience affect student outcomes? What are the effects of poverty on standardized testing? How can a teacher or parent develop study skills in the special needs learner? What is the effect of the school environment on students? What are the larger issues at work in educating students of diverse race, culture, and class? This work, a rethinking of the field of school psychology, will be an essential resource for anyone interested in teaching and learning. It combines effective, traditional knowledge with contemporary insights into the nature of today's schools and students. Currently, there is an information gap between scholars and practitioners in the field of educational psychology concerning recent and on going developments. At this time there is no one source that provides a broad and comprehensive presentation of these changes. This work bridges the gap by providing a much needed explication of how educational psychology can meet the needs of diverse students, families, and schools. Volume 4 is divided into 14 sections, contains Part IV, and presents chapters 83 through 110.
