Graham, S. & Harris, K. (2008). In Memory of Michael Pressley: A Role Model for 21st-Century Educational Psychologists. EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGIST,J. Hunsley, E J Mash. 65-69. United States of America: Routledge.
This article honors the contributions of Michael Pressley and examines 5 roles that were critical to his work as an educational psychologist: teacher, scholar, critic, builder, and mentor. We draw on Michael's life to illustrate how he carried out each of these roles and propose that educational psychologists in higher education in the new millennium should assume all 5 of these roles throughout the majority of their careers.
