Summary

The Only Comprehensive Development Text Written Specifically for Educators More than any other development text,Child Development and Educationspells out the practical implications of development theory and research and provides concrete applications for educators to take into the classroom.

Applying Concepts in Child Developmentsections at the ends of each chapter provide scenarios connected to developmental concepts and allow students to practice applying their knowledge of development in making educational decisions (e.g., pp. ___). The Difference Between Reading About Development and Seeing It in Diverse Contexts More than any other text,Child Development and Educationillustrates abstract concepts with concrete illustrations from children of diverse family, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds through case studies; artifacts from journals, sketchbooks, and schoolwork; and digital video footage. Each chapter begins and ends with aCase Studyand includes integrated vignettes throughout the chapter (e.g., pp. ___). Most chapters have one or moreDevelopmental Trendstables that highlight the developmental differences that readers are apt to observe in infancy (birth-2), early childhood (2-6), middle childhood (6-10), early adolescence (10-14), and late adolescence (14-18). See pages ____for examples. Interpreting Children's Artifacts and Reflectionsfeatures provide practice in evaluating student work and applying new knowledge authentically (e.g., pp. ___).
