Summary: For Human Development/Lifespan Development courses organized topically.Development Across the Life Span: A Topical Approach addresses two main concerns of instructors that came out of extensive market research: First, almost every instructor acknowledged that the breadth of lifespan development is so vast that it is difficult to cover the entire field within the confines of a traditional college.
