Developmental and Educational Psychology for Teachers brings together a range of evidence drawn from psychology to answer a number of critical educational questions, from basic questions of readiness – for example, when is a child ready for school, through to more complex matters, such as how does a teacher understand and promote good peer relationships in their classroom? The answers to these and other questions discussed draw here on the interplay between a teachers’ craft expertise and their knowledge of evidence and theory from developmental and educational psychology. Presenting a range of classic theories and contemporary research to help readers understand what the key issues are for teachers and other professionals, this book aides informed educational decisions in situations such as: inclusion, ability grouping, sex differences, developing creativity, home and peer influences on learning, and developing effective learners. Teachers in early years, primary and secondary settings are routinely faced with questions regarding the development of children. This not only relates to the planning and delivery of lessons, but also to the mental and physical wellbeing of the children and adolescents that they teach. The pedagogical features of this book are accessible and clearly presented, including focus questions that direct the reader’s attention to key issues, activity posts that point the reader to meaningful and relevant research and show the practical applications of material covered, and extension material that gives depth to many of the topics covered. This book aims to inform the practice of both in-service and trainee teachers, addressing issues that are relevant to their practice. With no other detailed and accessible text presenting this evidence and theory specifically for an audience of practicing and trainee teachers currently on the market, this book will be of essential reading to practicing and trainee teachers for early years, primary and secondary education and other related educational contexts such as educational psychologists, counsellors, paediatric and child doctors and nurses.

The scope and purpose of educational processes have been heavily modified under the influence of psychological breakthroughs and their developmental perspectives in recent decades. This book is an attempt to address some of the key psychological aspects in the literature classified into emotional, cognitive, and psychological perspectives with a particular concentration on language teaching. By presenting detailed empirical studies on the covered topics, I attempted to indicate the intertwined relationships between language and psychology in educational settings. The first study deals with the impact of teacher-directed hypnotic suggestions on students’ emotional intelligence and their academic performance. The second study introduces simplified tests to coordinate the helpless attitudes of the students. In the last research, I examined the interaction effects of the contextual factors and teachers’ professional profiles on their cognitive orientations with a specific focus on teachers’ dissonance belief systems. Overall, this book provides an overview of the functions and influences of the psychological concepts in educational contexts, particularly language teaching.
