Cognitive Development and Learning in Instructional Contexts is designed to summarize psychological research on students' learning in reading, mathematics, social studies, writing and science. This book discusses how children learn different subject areas so that teachers can better individualize instruction for diverse classrooms. A section on instructional implications appears toward the end of each chapter to help the student apply theory to practice.
