This text has received wide acclaim for its applied, practical, and student-oriented approach to educational psychology, which demonstrates how complex psychological theories apply to the everyday experiences of in-service teachers. Coverage of educational psychology is framed so that the aspiring and developing teachers who read it can see themselves as engaged learners: professionals who continuously seek, find, and test better ways to help their students succeed. PSYCHOLOGY APPLIED TO TEACHING, 14th Edition, combines fresh concepts and contemporary research with long-standing theory and applications to create a textbook that addresses the needs of today's teachers and students. This edition also features integration of InTASC Standards, new Learning Objectives correlated with chapter headings and summaries, new Guides to Reading and Studying, new first-person accounts (Improving Practice through Inquiry: One Teacher's Story), and more.

Revised by Rick McCown, the Instructor's Manual with Test Bank (IMTB) provides an organizing framework that enables instructors to efficiently select and access instructional components that accompany the text. The manual also provides a model syllabus, activities, discussion topics, formative assessments, and a test bank. The formative assessments are those that experienced educational psychology instructors have found to be effective in engaging aspiring teachers in the classroom; for instance, through activities that check comprehension and understanding of concepts, and help pre-service teachers construct factual, conceptual, procedural, and metacognitive knowledge. Thoroughly revised by Jack Snowman, the Test Bank includes test items consisting of multiple-choice items in alternate forms, short-answer questions, and essay questions. Each multiple-choice and short-answer question reflects a Key Point and either the Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, or Analysis level of Bloom's Taxonomy. Feedback booklets allow instructors to point out misconceptions in students' reasoning. Available online, the IMTB makes it easy for instructors to import organizational tools, activities, and assessments that they wish to use in class.Online PowerPoint® (ISBN-10: 1285736508 | ISBN-13: 9781285736501)
