Santrock et al. approach educational psychology from the learner's perspective. Throughout three editions, professors and students note that Educational Psychology successfully includes many practical applications to the theoretical perspectives outlined, so that beginning teachers understand the connection between theory and practice. Its supplements and links to practical aspects motivate students, while its teaching stories inspire teachers on how to structure their classrooms to bring out the best from each child.
