Readings for Future Teachers

Educational Psychology in Context: Readings for Future Teachers provides an exciting alternative in helping teachers develop a strong theoretical and research-based understanding of how their students learn and develop. The book is an anthology of primary source readings selected with an eye towards students about to enter the teaching profession and for teachers interested in carefully examining learning and development.
