Educational Psychology

Applications in Canadian Classrooms

Alan Edmunds and Gail Edmunds

  • Expert Scholars: Written by two well-respected scholars in the field, the text is a practical and authoritative treatment of educational psychology today.
  • Unique Thematic Approach: Grounded in the activities of an actual classroom, concepts in educational psychology are presented so that they apply directly to teacher-candidates and their experiences.
  • Real life scenarios and examples link theory to practice, contextualizing fundamental topics in a way that is relatable and easy to understand.
  • An engaging narrative written from the perspective of a fictional teacher teaching a class of students of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and learning abilities. This appears in the text as comments by the new teacher on her day-to-day experiences in the classroom, relating directly to topics covered in the text, as well as issues and challenges that new teachers will face in their classroom.
  • A chapter sequence that follows the realistic timeline of a school year--August to June--outlining what teachers will encounter in each month.
  • Linking different aspects of educational psychology together: Students learn the relationship and interaction between topics such as Classroom Management and Assessment of Learning as they will experience them in the real world, rather than studying these topics in isolation.
  • Excellent Pedagogy: Learning objectives, lists of further resources, key concepts, figures, photos, and tables are woven throughout the narrative, aiding in student comprehension of the topic.
