This book examines the ways in which the theory and data of social psychology can be applied to teaching, learning, and other experiences in schools. Its focus ranges in level from the individual (e.g., student attitudes and attributions), to teacher-student interaction, to the impact of society (e.g., racial and cultural influences on school performances). The editor and distinguished contributors have two major purposes. The first is to illustrate the scope and sophistication of the emerging field known as the social psychology of education. The second is to provide solid, informed suggestions to educators for the amelioration of current educational problems. To that end, each author explicitly discusses implications for educational practice. Psychologists and educational researchers will find The Social Psychology of Education a useful and comprehensive guide to an increasingly active new research area.

Industry Reviews

"The purpose of the book is twofold: to examine the major areas of research within the social psychology of education, and to provide 'as much practical, problem-solving advice for educational practitioners as possible.' The book succeeds admirably in both endeavors...an excellent overview of some of the most important and interesting research currently being conducted in the field of education...the approach is a refreshing one to take in a field full of theoretical work that is devoid of practical application. The book is a valuable compendium for educators, researchers, and practitioners in education who want to look at educational issues from an enriched social-psychological perspective." Susan K. Boardman, New Ideas in Psychology
