The Handbook of Academic Learning provides a comprehensive resource for educational and cognitive psychologists, as well as educators themselves, on the mechanisms and processes of academic learning. Beginning with general themes that cross subject and age levels, the book discusses what motivates students to learn and how knowledge can be made personal for better learning and remembering. Individual chapters identify proven effective teaching methods for the specific domains of math, reading, writing, science, and critical problem solving; how students-learn within those domains; and how learning can be accurately assessed for given domains and age levels.
Written by authors who have experience with both theory development and the development of classroom instructional techniques, the Handbook will empower educators to develop, implement, and field test instructional practices at their school site. The book provides a review of the literature, theory, research, and skill techniques for effective teaching and learning.
