Originally published in 1971, this book was a critical introduction to the psychology of human development, learning and assessment. It was written with special attention to the needs of students of education and teachers, keeping in view the practical implications of psychological evidence. The author’s purpose was to provide a clear and straightforward account of these matters, while at the same time promoting a thoughtful and critical response. If the book is to be called a textbook, it is so in this best sense.

Psychology of education has long held a place in the curriculum for training teachers but what implications can psychological theory legitimately have for educational practice? In this book the author makes a direct attack on the current role of psychology in education, showing important differences between psychologists' and educators' interests in topics such as learning, motivation and development, and questioning the validity of many of Piaget's most fundamental ideas. He compares two developmental theories that superficially have much in common – Plato's and Piaget's – and focuses on their implications for learning in the classroom. He shows why Plato's theory (whether or not we agree with it) serves as a model of a useful educational theory and why Piaget's theory has no implications for education. He reaches the conclusion that psychological theories and research based on them are irrelevant to educational practice.

What can psychology offer inclusive education? Traditionally, special education has looked to psychology for many of its theoretical resources and practical strategies. While those seeking to promote more inclusive education have tended to see psychology and psychologists as part of the problem by providing a rationale for segregation. However, in practice many psychologists today are developing inclusive ways of working, and are paying attention to psychological theories that underpin inclusive education. Psychology for Inclusive Education reframes the contribution of psychology in terms of its relevance to inclusion and will show how psychological theories of learning and human development are compatible with inclusive education. Part 1 explores psychological theories relevant to understanding inclusive education and Part 2 looks at how psychology can contribute to promoting more inclusive education in practice. Chapters cover: how psychologists can collaborate with teachers for inclusive solutions Vygotsky's theories of learning and their significance for inclusion the challenge of developing pedagogies for inclusion sociocultural understandings of learning in inclusive classrooms the role of emotion in learning and inclusion cooperative learning and inclusion the challenges and tensions of inclusion and high standards for schools the practice of dynamic assessment as an inclusive alternative to IQ social justice and inclusive psychology Bringing together a highly distinguished list of international contributors from the UK, USA and South Africa and including practising educational psychologists, this book will link theory to practice in schools and classrooms. International in focus and at the very cutting edge of the field, this is essential reading for all those interested in the development of inclusive education.

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.

Presenting a range of psychological theories in a non-technical and readable style, this book shows how psychology can be used to effectively deliver educational objectives and enhance children’s learning.

Structured to reflect the standards for QTS and relevant for key stages 1-4, this book shows how understanding the psychological theories underpinning pedagogy can help both trainee and practising teachers become reflective and informed practitioners when faced with new and challenging teaching situations.
