"I applaud the vision the authors had in synthesizing this information in a way that makes the reader more confident in their application of these theories and principles to their own classrooms. The authors have wonderfully succeeded in their attempt to integrate this material, in a manner quite different from other texts I've read or reviewed." Jim Persinger, "Emporia State University" "Any textbook that overemphasizes theory, neglects the real-world; any textbook that overemphasizes practice, neglects the underlying foundation of theory. This book strikes a careful balance between theory and practice by explicitly linking the two." Gregory Cutler, "Bay de Noc Community College" "By far, this is the best educational psychology text I have read because it integrates and applies major learning theories to many of the daily issues future teachers will face." Krista Robertson, "Rhode Island College" "I see this textbook as well written, informative, clearly and logically organized, and a very useful component for a course in Educational Psychology. I like it!" Raymond E. Webster, "East Carolina University" "The authors have done an excellent job in producing an easy-to-follow format and style." Paula Holmes Miller, "Crichton College" "The authors' writing style and presentation level are clear and easy to read, along with tables, figures, concept maps, and other visual aids." Yuliang Liu, Ph.D, "Southern Illinois University" "The text is well written and some very difficult topics such as Attribution Theory and Constructivism (to name just two) are easy to understand, when compared to similar books. I think this is some of the clearest writing I have read in a long time." Michael P. Verdi, "California State University San Bernadino" "I really enjoyed reading this text, and I found its comprehensive nature to be a strength." Linda W. Morse, "Mississippi State University" "The authors' writing style is clear, simple, and direct. It speaks directly to the reader . . . the examples are concrete and related to education." John Isch, "Martin Luther College"

Exploring Geology by Reynolds/Johnson/ Morin/Carter is an innovative textbook intended for an introductory college geology course, such as Physical Geology. This ground-breaking, visually spectacular book was designed from cognitive and educational research on how students think, learn, and study. Nearly all information in the book is built around 2,600 photographs and stunning illustrations, rather than being in long blocks of text that are not articulated with figures. These annotated illustrations help students visualize geologic processes and concepts, and are suited to the way most instructors already teach. To alleviate cognitive load and help students focus on one important geologic process or concept at a time, the book consists entirely of two-page spreads organized into 19 chapters. Each two-page spread is a self-contained block of information about a specific topic, emphasizing geologic concepts, processes, features, and approaches. These spreads help students learn and organize geologic knowledge in a new and exciting way. Inquiry is embedded throughout the book, modeling how geologists investigate problems. The title of each two-page spread and topic heading is a question intended to get readers to think about the topic and become interested and motivated to explore the two-page spread for answers. Each chapter is a learning cycle, which begins with a visually engaging two-page spread about a compelling geologic issue. Each chapter ends with an Investigation that challenges students with a problem associated with a virtual place. The world-class media, spectacular presentations, and assessments are all tightly articulated with the textbook. This book is designed to encourage students to observe, interpret, think critically, and engage in authentic inquiry, and is highly acclaimed by reviewers, instructors, and students.

"Game Feel" exposes "feel" as a hidden language in game design that no one has fully articulated yet. The language could be compared to the building blocks of music (time signatures, chord progressions, verse) - no matter the instruments, style or time period - these building blocks come into play. Feel and sensation are similar building blocks where game design is concerned. They create the meta-sensation of involvement with a game. The understanding of how game designers create feel, and affect feel are only partially understood by most in the field and tends to be overlooked as a method or course of study, yet a game's feel is central to a game's success. This book brings the subject of feel to light by consolidating existing theories into a cohesive book. The book covers topics like the role of sound, ancillary indicators, the importance of metaphor, how people perceive things, and a brief history of feel in games. The associated web site contains a playset with ready-made tools to design feel in games, six key components to creating virtual sensation. There's a play palette too, so the desiger can first experience the importance of that component by altering variables and feeling the results. The playset allows the reader to experience each of the sensations described in the book, and then allows them to apply them to their own projects. Creating game feel without having to program, essentially. The final version of the playset will have enough flexibility that the reader will be able to use it as a companion to the exercises in the book, working through each one to create the feel described.
