Contents: 1. The general nature of human cognition and learning: probably not quite what you think; 2. The human brain: the hardware of our thinking and learning; 3. Cognition and learning as constructive processes: finding order in chaos; 4. Key components of the human memory system: an overly simplistic yet useful model; 5. In-depth cognitive processing: maximizing the 'long-term' in long-term memory; 6. Remembering, forgetting, and misremembering: why long-term memory isn't always dependable; 7. Metacognition: thinking about thinking; 8. Conceptual change: revising our understandings when revisions are called for; 9. Bringing other factors into the picture: how emotions, dispositions, and attributions affect thinking and learning; 10. Self-regulating our behavior: turning intentions into actions; Appendix; References; Index.
Responsibility: Jeanne Ellis Ormrod (University of Northern Colorado).
