Written by the author of highly effective psychology texts relied upon by thousands of teachers and students, this text shows future teachers how to put theory into practice. It reflects the voices of today’s teachers and students, and includes numerous case studies to help pre-service teachers understand how to apply educational psychology.

The Classroom Update enriches Educational Psychology with a wealth of new applied resources: a video library for students that includes "Expert Advice" interviews with experts in the field; "Video Lectures" expanding content covered in the text; "Video Observations" showing K-12 classrooms; and "Teaching Experience" interviews with K-12 teachers. Also new to the update are specific strategies offered by K-12 teachers, "Theory into Practice" modules that allow students to study and apply key theories, and "Enter the Debate" questions regarding controversial, thought-provoking issues. A PRAXIS™ II (Principles of Learning and Teaching) study guide is now available as a print supplement or in electronic form on the Student Toolbox CD-ROM.
