Aronson, Joshua


"A book for anyone who cares about the social-developmental milieu of education and how to improve it. Bringing together 3 generations of influential thinkers from social, cognitive, developmental, personality, and educational psychology, this volume offers a wide-ranging assessment of how the insights and methods of these fields can be used to boost academic achievement. It will educate the next generation of students, inspire innovative research, and become a standard reference in educational psychology." --Matthew McGlone, Associate Professor of Psychology, Lafayette College "How can teachers improve student achievement? Over the past four decades, psychologists have developed an enormous body of research to shed light on this crucial question. Too often, though, their answers have remained veiled from teachers in the field. This superb volume of essays promises to bridge the unconscionable gap between psychologists and educators. Spanning an impressive range of issues-including motivation, self-esteem, and racial stereotyping-the volume also unites "classic" studies from the 1960s and 1970s with recent advances. Written in accessible, jargon-free prose, these essays should be required reading for anybody who wishes to study or to instruct children. Psychology has much to teach us, if we will only pause to listenoand to learn." --Jonathan Zimmerman, Director, History of Education Program, Steinhardt School of Education, New York University "As educators working in schools, we need to understand what research in education and psychology is discovering about the impact we teachers have on student achievement. We want our practice to be grounded in strategies that are based on insightful, rigorous research. This compilation of meaningful articles provides an opportunity for researchers and educators to learn from each other how to shape classrooms that are supportive, motivating, and empowering for our students. Teachers are increasingly working with students who have a wide range of learning styles and abilities. National standardized testing shows there is a growing gap between the academic achievement of students depending on race and class. If we are serious about reducing this gap and promoting the academic achievement of every student, this research will help guide us as we transform classrooms into learning environments that can truly educate every student." --Sarah Feldman, Assistant Principal, Stanley Middle School, Lafayette, CA In this book, authors discuss research and theory on the social psychological forces that shape academic achievement. A key focus is to show how psychological principles can be used to foster achievement and make schooling a more enjoyable process. Topics are highly relevant to both social and educational psychology, with discussions of core concepts such as intelligence, motivation, self-esteem and self-concept, expectations and attributions, prejudice, and interpersonal and intergroup relations. Key Features * Coverage of both classic and cutting{edge research and theory * Written in a jargon-free style by leaders in the field for students of both education and psychology * Provides answers to questions from school teachers about the research and how to apply itAronson, Joshua is the author of 'Improving Academic Achievement Impact of Psychological Factors on Education', published 2002 under ISBN 9780120644551 and ISBN 012064455X.
