Summary: Like the highly popular original version, this second edition of Life Span Motor Development makes an outstanding textbook for undergraduate courses in motor development. Kathleen Haywood has revised her ground-breaking book to include even more comprehensive and up-to-date information on the study of motor development throughout the entire life span. The text is designed for students with little or no background in the movement sciences--the book covers all of the material requir moreed to meet minimum competencies established by AAHPERD's Motor Development Academy. Students will also benefit from many new features that make this second edition even more user-friendly, including: a list of concepts and an introduction to open each chapter; twice as many photos and more graphs, drawings, and tables;
expanded sections with more detailed explanations of chapter concepts;
sidebars that discuss topics related to the chapter concepts; chapter summaries, key terms, study questions, and suggested readings to close each chapter; and a comprehensive glossary. Life Span Motor Development (Second Edition) will lead your students through the principles, research, and applied practice of motor development from infancy through older adulthood. They'll learn about new concepts in motor development, like the dynamic systems perspective--a new theoretical approach that is reshaping the way many view the developmental process. Redesigned in an easy-to-follow format, the book is now divided into three parts. Part I provides an overview of motor development--including factors affecting prenatal and postnatal development--followed by a discussion of physical growth processes occurring in various body systems. Part II covers motor development from infancy through older adulthood. And Part III discusses how motor development is affected by perceptual and cognitive development, physiological responses to training, and psychosocial factors. Your students also will find the accompanying manual, Laboratory Activities for Life Span Motor Development (Second Edition), to be a helpful learning aid. It features 20 complete laboratory activities that correspond to each chapter in Life Span Motor Development (Second Edition) and enable your students to apply the information they've learned. less
