Summary

This accessible and engaging text, written by well-known and respected child development researchers and teachers, emphasizes applying research to practice.

Discovering Child Development focuses on the many ways in which children are affected by their environments. The authors illustrate the ways in which children are unique and the impact that people, contexts, and experiences have on how they develop. Martin and Fabes also encourage students to think critically about research and issues in child development and see how these relate to real-life experiences.

Features

  • Well-known authors: In addition to their years of teaching experience, Carol Martin and Richard Fabes are both prolific and well respected researchers. Together they have authored close to 200 articles, book chapters, and edited books. Dr. Martin's research focuses on gender-role development and the cognitive processes underlying it, and Dr. Fabes's research focuses on the socio-emotional development of young children. Dr. Fabes is also the Chair of the Department of Family and Human Development at Arizona State University.
  • Unsurpassed illustration program appeals to visual learners.This text is filled with beautifully rendered illustrations that visually highlight important -- and sometimes challenging -- concepts.
  • Visual concept summaries conclude each chapter, providing students with an eye-catching and pedagogically useful chapter review. These two-page spreads summarize the key topics covered in each chapter by using text, photos, figures, and tables to present material in the most engaging way
  • From Research to Practice sections present findings from cutting edge scientific research in child development and walk students through the practical applications of that research. Thinking it Through questions close each feature, urging students to think critically about the study.
  • Superior coverage of gender and diversity issues is a hallmark of this text. The authors integrate examples of diversity throughout the book, and examine how cultural differences, gender, race, ethnicity, and social and economic status influence children's developmental outcomes.
  • Special emphasis on the mysteries of development is showcased at the beginning of each chapter, where the authors use a thought provoking ''developmental mystery'' to hook the reader and highlight the complexities of child development.
  • Debating the Issue sections focus on contemporary policy issues that represent critical points of controversy in the field. Thinking it Through questions close each feature, encouraging students to analyze and express opinions on these issues and develop the skills needed to evaluate policy, research, and media issues in the field.
  • Nurturing Children sections show the impact of various research findings on decision-making and problem solving related to children in real-world contexts. The direct applications to the areas of education, parenting, health, and safety are particularly relevant to students pursuing careers working with and caring for children.
  • State of the art ancillary packaging includes the Child Development Instructor's Classroom Kit CD-ROM , a CD-ROM that houses all of the instructor supplements for the course (Instructor's Manual, Test Bank, PowerPoint slides, and art from the book), organized by chapter to give instructors easy electronic access to a wealth of resources. Also available is the two-volume Child Development Instructor's Classroom Kit that organizes all of the available print supplements for the course (Instructor's Manual, Test Bank, and Grade Aid Study Guide -- as well as print outs of PowerPoint slides) by chapter. The first volume opens with a course syllabus, and each chapter begins with a teaching plan for that particular chapter as well as a guide on which video clips, transparencies, and PowerPoint slides are the best to use with each chapter. Both volumes are perforated and 3-hole punched -- giving instructors one master resource with all of the ancillary materials at their fingertips!
