Review

This set would be a very good reference resource for many high school students. Index. Recommended.Library Media Connection

Well worth considering by libraries concerned with education, psychology or public policy.Reference Reviews

As editors Kincheloe and Horn make clear in their introduction, this four-volume survey of the field of educational psychology in oriented away from the dominant mechanistic disciplinary orientation and is rooted more in traditions of cultural and interpretive psychology that focus on the process of meaning making over the production of generalized empirical data. The 110 chapters review the various strands of this cultural and interpretive tradition, culminating in discussion of Kinchelhoe's "postformalist" approach to educational psychology, which draws on insights from the Frankfurt School, feminist theory, the development theory of Jean Piaget, the ethical concerns of liberation theology, and a variety of other critical theories.Reference & Research Book News

Product Description

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.
