- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after April 8, 2022
Educational Psychology and Transformational Classrooms uniquely positions teachers’ transformational experiences as central to understanding and implementing educational psychology research. Across three well-developed case studies using narrative inquiry methods, this volume explores moments of significant change, learning, and evolution in teaching and learning. Each case is followed by analyses from educational psychologists focusing on the three central actors in the learning experience—students, teacher, and context—and is then concluded with case authors’ responses to the analyses provided. Showcasing the holistic experience of teaching before unpacking it with theory and research, this book centers classroom life and posits educational psychology as an ideal and accessible lens for its examination.
