Santrock’s Educational Psychology puts educational theory into application, making connections between chapter concepts and the real-life experiences of teachers across all grade-levels. The author provides students with dozens of strategies for the classroom and anecdotes from practitioners on key topics. Santrock’s hallmark Learning System organizes the content into learning goals, mini-chapter maps that layout each section, and a chapter-ending case study that gives students the opportunity to reflect and think critically about the things they have learned.
