The field of critical studies recognizes that all knowledge is deeply embedded in idealogical, cultural, political, and historical contexts. Although this approach is commonly applied in other subfields of psychology. educational psychology has resisted a comprehensive critical appraisal. In Critical Educational Psychology, stephen Vassallo seeks to correct this deficit by demonstrating hw the psychology of learning is neither neutral nor value-free but rather bound by a host of contextual issues and assumptions. Vassallo invites educators, researchers, and psychologists to think broadly about the implications that their use of psychology has on the teaching and learning process. He applies a wide variety of interdisciplinary approaches to examine the psychology of learning, cognitive development, motivation, creativity, discipline, and attention. drawing on multiple perspectives within psychology and critical theory, he reveals that contemporary educational psychology is entangled in and underpinned by specific political, idealogical, historical, and cultural contexts.--Book cover.
