This second edition provides an updated functional and realistic approach to applying human learning to classroom instruction. This book is written for classroom teachers who may have limited background and experiences in applying theories of educational psychology. Frequently, teachers may be aware of the many theories of learning, but may not be aware of how to transpose those theories into practical classroom application. This book is designed to accomplish such a purpose. Several new chapters in the areas of emotions and motivation have been added, and major revisions have been made in chapters dealing with learning styles, brain-based learning, improving memory, and integrating reading into the content areas.
