Educational psychology is the branch of psychology concerned with the scientific study of human learning. The study of learning processes, from both cognitive and behavioral perspectives, allows researchers to understand individual differences in intelligence, cognitive development, affect, motivation, self-regulation, and self-concept, as well as their role in learning. It appears to be a greater need for the next generation of educational psychologists to have knowledge of a subject matter field and to have a developmental perspective. They also need an awareness of the social context of learning. They should have training in the methodologies uniquely associated with cognitive psychology and qualitative research and experience with alternative forms of student and teacher assessment. They will also need to better understand how case and procedural knowledge are acquired and develop. This book is designed to plan and teach the students in classroom about instructional strategies, expository approaches and more.
