    1. It's a school textbook. It's boring. I had to read it; therefore, it's going on here since it took up so much of my time.I'm saving all these textbooks. In August of 2019 when I get my degree I'm have a big bonfire!!!

    2. Judging from this book, educational psychology is a field of social science that examines formal education, a fundamentally horrible and inefficient method of knowledge transferral, and attempts to make it less awful, without actually changing the most horrible and inefficient parts about it. Since the industrial revolution, students have been shunted into age-based grade levels and classrooms (is there any other way to learn?) and guided through a planned curriculum by a teacher (suck from the [...]

    6. Yes, this a textbook, so naturally it is information-dense and dry at times. However, it was well-written and provides extremely useful information. Chapters covered topics such as theories of development, behavioral theories of learning, information processing and cognitive theories of learning, student-centered and constructivist approaches to learning, accommodating instruction to meet individual needs, the effective lesson, motivating students to learn, effective learning environments, and m [...]

    7. Self-Assessments are limited because they focus only on the opening vignette. The sidebar videos I did not find beneficial. The effective teacher's classroom videos for the most part were usually very informative and relevant to applying skills to real life. The text was not difficult to read, but they could have expanded on a few areas instead of cramming lots of new information into a single paragraph. It didn't go into nearly enough things that I didn't already know about teaching and student [...]

    8. Did not have this edition, but rather a "Pearson Custom" that culled from this book. It was ok, I learned some good stuff from it, but there were several concepts that were unclear, even after much class discussion. I shouldn't hold it against the book that the professor didn't know what the book was trying to say either, but it's hard for me to give high marks to a text that creates more confusion and doesn't resolve it.

    9. It's a good book to start if you want to have a wide understanding about educational psychology. What I like from this book is the "connect to others' part" things and "21st century skills" section. Also, there are a few activities that you can try--at class, if you are a teacher.For a undergrad student, I recommend you to read "reflectively"--you read chapters by chapters by reflecting it with your own experiences.

    10. This edition ignores best practice of modern bookselling: putting a binding on the book. There is little in this book that a year or two of classroom practice won't reveal to a thoughtful teacher.

    11. A good introduction to Educational Psychology, as it applies to teaching. I found the chapters on motivation to be especially interesting.

    12. The only issue I had with this book was the fact that it looked like a dictionary, instead of a book. It helped me with theory and some tables were really good.

    13. Invaluable if you enter the classroom or simply want to understand students better as a parent or interested party. Clearly written, helpful, and broken down into manageable sections.
