This classic text, now in its seventh edition, has been a landmark in its field for thirty years. It provides a lucid and totally up-to-date introduction to psychology for teachers.

Thoroughly revised, this new edition incorporates recent research and developments and contains two new chapters on research in education and effective classroom strategies. Professor Child covers all areas of education, including classroom management, teaching styles, motivation, special educational needs and assessment. Special attention has been paid to current thinking, policy and practice.

Psychology and the Teacher has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of student teachers, as well as those of experienced teachers and educationalists who need to renew their acquaintance with psychology.
