This book examines the ways in which the theory and data of social psychology can be applied to teaching, learning, and other experiences in schools. Its focus ranges in level from the individual (e.g., student attitudes and attributions), to the teacher-student interaction, to the impact of society (e.g., racial and cultural influences on school performance). The editor and distinguished contributors have two major purposes. The first is to illustrate the scope and sophistication of the emerging field known as the social psychology of education. The second is to provide solid, informed suggestions to educators for the amelioration of current educational problems. To that end, each author explicitly discusses implications for educational practice.

When this classic book was first published in 1926, L.S. Vygotsky was well on his way to becoming one of the leading intellectuals in Russia. His study of the psychology of education led him to believe that the child should be the main figure in the educational process - and the efforts of the teacher should be directed toward organizing, not dictating, the child's development. "The educational process must be based on the student's individual activity ..." he states in Educational Psychology, "... and the art of education should involve nothing more than guiding and monitoring this activity." At a time when most education consisted of rote memorization and thwacks across the wrist with a ruler, these ideas were considered quite radical. Today's educators can find much that is of use in the pages of Educational Psychology. Vygotsky addresses many issues that are still relevant in the 1990s - abnormal social behavior, the nurturing of creativity and reasoning, problems with attention and memory - in a bold and opinionated fashion that is sure to delight educators as well as lovers of classical Russian writing. Psychologists will also find the book useful for its fascinating glimpses into the study of psychology in the early twentieth century.

The psychological study of music has a long history, with research being undertaken in relation to every aspect of human musical behaviour. Although much of the research is of direct concern to music educators, it has not until now been presented in an easily accessible, single volume. Music Psychology in Education presents a comprehensive overview of the field, beginning with the function of music in society – its origins, nature and purposes, taking account of cross-cultural perspectives. Individual chapters then focus on the psychological underpinnings of the elements of music education: music, the brain and learning; early development; musical ability; listening, appraising and responding to music; composing and improvising; learning to play an instrument and develop vocal skills; learning through practice; motivation and musical identity; assessment; teachers and teaching; the impact of music through life. Music Psychology in Education will be of interest to students training to be instrumental and class teachers, and to all teachers wishing to further their understanding of teaching and learning.

Originally published in 1979, this title is based upon Professor Stones’ extensive work with practising and student teachers. His overriding concern is with the contribution of psychology to pedagogy to help practitioners improve their practice and theorists test their theories. He develops the thesis that teaching involves the teacher in psychological experimentation. Thus one of the most important laboratories for testing the application of learning theories is the classroom. The adoption of this view offers the potential for transforming teaching and our understanding of human learning. Unlike the majority of books in the field of educational psychology at the time it is not a synoptic anthology of the writings of the current gurus in the field or its close neighbours. Instead, guides are given to teachers/experimenters to plan, try out and evaluate their teaching/experimenting. The central theme adopted at the outset and held throughout the book is the improvement of teaching through the explicit, informed use of psychopedagogical principles.

A detailed discussion on exceptional children and learning disabled children together with the educational measures for overcoming such disabilities is also included. The text concludes with an important aspect of human behaviour, namely, adjustment. Interspersed with examples, illustrations and tables, this text is ideally suited for postgraduate students of education and psychology. It can also be profitably used by teachers, teacher-educators, guidance and counselling personnel, and administrators of educational institutions.

The field of educational psychology draws from a variety of diverse disciplines including human development across the life span, measurement and statistics, learning and motivation, and teaching. And within these different disciplines, many other fields are featured including psychology, anthropology, education, sociology, public health, school psychology, counseling, history, and philosophy. In fact, when taught at the college or university level, educational psychology is an ambitious course that undertakes the presentation of many different topics all tied together by the theme of how the individual can best function in an "educational" setting, loosely defined as anything from pre-school through adult education. Educational psychology can be defined as the application of what we know about learning and motivation, development, and measurement and statistics to educational settings (both school- and community-based).
