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 the teacher-student interaction, to the impact of society (e.g., racial and cultural influences on school performance). 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.

The psychological study of music has a long history, with research being undertaken in relation to every aspect of human musical behaviour. Although much of the research is of direct concern to music educators, it has not until now been presented in an easily accessible, single volume. Music Psychology in Education presents a comprehensive overview of the field, beginning with the function of music in society – its origins, nature and purposes, taking account of cross-cultural perspectives. Individual chapters then focus on the psychological underpinnings of the elements of music education: music, the brain and learning; early development; musical ability; listening, appraising and responding to music; composing and improvising; learning to play an instrument and develop vocal skills; learning through practice; motivation and musical identity; assessment; teachers and teaching; the impact of music through life. Music Psychology in Education will be of interest to students training to be instrumental and class teachers, and to all teachers wishing to further their understanding of teaching and learning.

Psychology of education has long held a place in the curriculum for training teachers but what implications can psychological theory legitimately have for educational practice? In this book the author makes a direct attack on the current role of psychology in education, showing important differences between psychologists' and educators' interests in topics such as learning, motivation and development, and questioning the validity of many of Piaget's most fundamental ideas. He compares two developmental theories that superficially have much in common – Plato's and Piaget's – and focuses on their implications for learning in the classroom. He shows why Plato's theory (whether or not we agree with it) serves as a model of a useful educational theory and why Piaget's theory has no implications for education. He reaches the conclusion that psychological theories and research based on them are irrelevant to educational practice.
