About-

No one fully understands how learning works, but educational psychologists understand a great deal about what works.

The collaborative team of Klaus Issler and Ronald Habermas has assembled an integration of theology and instructional theory in Teaching for Reconciliation: Foundations and Practice of Christian Educational Ministry. Now they expound on one aspect of educational theory/theology to help teachers choose the method that best reaches particular learners in a specific learning situation.

How We Learn demystifies the principles of educational psychology. The book identifies:
--means and barriers in learning - --motivational factors that make learners receptive
--learning's outcome in attitudes, spirituality, and behavior

Application sections, special exercises and examples, plus dozens of figures and tables aid understanding of learning effectiveness, age-related development, individual learning style, special education, and other issues.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Issler and Habermas have written a work that all Christian educators should be acquainted with.... The sections on Purposes and the chapter on Human Nature are by themselves worth the reading of the book.... It will be cited and included in my reading lists and will help guide students toward helpful Christian treatments of educational psychology."
