Woolfolk (educational psychology, Ohio State U.) supplies students in teaching, speech therapy, nursing, and psychology programs with an educational psychology text that stresses the educational implications and applications of research on child development, cognitive science, learning, motivation, teaching, and assessment. She addresses theory and practice together and shows how educational psychology research can be applied to everyday problems of teaching. This edition has more on the brain and neuroscience, opportunity gaps in education, observational learning, developing self-regulation, and authentic assessment; more emphasis on diversity and integrating across theories to understand teaching and learning; and new themes of the context of teaching today, teachers' sense of efficacy, and differentiation. It has new information on cognitive development and science, behavioral interventions for autism, and embodied cognition and learning in a digital world, and new sections on gender development and differences, the effects of digital media, biases in the application of labels, multiple intelligences, learning styles, ADHD, student drug use, metacognition and learning strategies, cultural differences in problem solving and creativity, argumentation, teaching self-management, creating caring communities, cyberbullying, teacher knowledge, adaptive teaching, mentoring, and technology. It has a new chapter on language development and diversity and immigrant education; an expanded section on self-determination and goal theories; and updates to No Child Left Behind.
