PSYCHOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, Fourth Edition, offers a concept-based approach supported by a unique pedagogical framework. Author Jeff Nevid provides a broad view of psychology that includes history, major theories, research methods, and important research findings as well as applications of contemporary research to the problems and challenges faced in everyday life. Nevid developed the effective teaching devices in this text based on a comprehensive system derived from research on learning and memory as well as his own research on textbook pedagogy. The text's successful modular format organizes each chapter into manageable instructional units that help students focus on one topic at a time within the context of a larger chapter structure. The material also incorporates four goals that Nevid refers to as the Four E's of Effective Learning: Engaging Student Interest, Encoding Information, Elaborating Meaning, and Evaluating Progress. In the Fourth Edition, Nevid employs a new IDEA Model of Course Assessment--unique to this text--which maps specific learning goals (tied to APA goals) to measurable skills students acquire in their first exposure to psychology. Executed throughout each chapter, the model presents learning objectives that are expressed in the form of active learning verbs, and linked to measurable learning outcomes. The model is integrated with the test-item file, making it easy for instructors to select items measuring these particular outcomes.

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 book's long-outdated first nine chapters, dealing with such sensory processes as vision, hearing, and touch, have been omitted from this edition.)
