    The fourth edition of the Handbook of Educational Psychology, sponsored by Division 15 of the American Psychological Association, addresses new developments in educational psychology theory and research methods while honoring the legacy of the field’s past. Comprising 31 chapters written by a diverse group of recognized Educational Psychologist and/or Learning and Motivational Scientist (EDP/LMS) scholars, this volume provides integrative reviews and critical syntheses of inquiry across a variety of foundational and new areas. Key constructs like motivation, development, beliefs, literacy, and emotions are given substantive updates, while entire new chapters touch on trends that have materialized since the publication of the third edition, such as inquiry world views, Critical Race Theory, cognitive neuroscience, and emerging technologies in education. Throughout this new edition, chapter authors coalesce on issues of social justice, situated approaches to inquiry, and progressive inquiry methods.

    The Handbook of Educational Psychology, Fourth Edition, will be an important reference volume for current and future EDP/LMS scholars, broadly conceived, as well as for teacher educators, practicing teachers, policy makers, and the academic libraries serving these audiences. It is also appropriate for graduate-level courses in educational psychology, learning and motivational sciences, and research methods in education and psychology.

    "As societies change, and they do so with increasing rapidity, scholarship in the social and behavioral sciences needs also to reconsider its history, methods, and purposes. This edition of the Handbook does just that. It is contemporary in that it not only honors the knowledge we have created through updated literature reviews in the various sub-areas of our field, but also deals forthrightly with the many social problems that also must be addressed by our scholarship. I am delighted to watch educational psychology evolve in such productive and socially responsible ways."

    "Like its predecessors, the fourth edition of the Handbook of Educational Psychology will prove a useful resource for course content and research. This volume goes well beyond a handy summary of the state of the art of the field. With its greater diversity of contributors and topics, this edition illustrates how the field is moving towards a more inclusive and progressive view of the role psychology plays in advancing teaching, learning, and education."
