Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Only Comprehensive Development Text Written Specifically for Educators

More than any other development text, Child Development and Education spells out the practical implications of development theory and research and provides concrete applications for educators to take into the classroom.

  • Development and Practice features offer developmentally appropriate concrete strategies for facilitating student development and learning (e.g., pp. 96, 208, and 222).
  • Observation Guidelines tables help students learn to observe developmental nuances in children and adolescents (e.g., pp. 84-85, 98, 200, and 209).
  • Applying Concepts in Child Development sections at the ends of each chapter provide scenarios connected to developmental concepts and allow students to practice applying their knowledge of development (e.g., pp.105-107 and 228-231).

 

The Difference between Reading about Development and Seeing It in Diverse Contexts

More than any other text, Child Development and Education illustrates 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 a Case Study and includes integrated vignettes throughout the chapter (e.g., pp. 63, 75, 81, and 105).
  • Most chapters have one or more Developmental Trends tables 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 87-88 and 225 for examples.
  • Interpreting Children’s Artifacts and Reflections features provide practice in evaluating student work and applying new knowledge authentically (e.g., pp.105-106, and 230).
  • Digital video footage allows students to explore significant topics in child development, including memory, friendship, and families, from the perspective of children from five age groups (e.g., pp. 65, 195, 201, 202, and 217).

Format: Paperback
Bought this book for my wife's course in Child Development. I ended up reading while she took breaks and got hooked on to it. Am almost done reading it and its not even my subject. Very insightful, very well explained concepts and fundamentals.

If you are buying this book for your course material - do not hesitate, its worth it. My wife benefited a great deal from this book.

Psst. Amazon prices were cheaper than the college bookstore prices.

I found the textbook in great condition. The book is very well written, has great examples, images, and summaries. I would encourage teachers to purchase the item so that they can have a better understanding of their students' development.

If you are a professor this book would be great fro undergrad students. Although it was used in a graduate class, it is simple enough to be understood by undergrads. It offers quality material, with detail and explanation of much of the human life span.

I'm on chapter 4 now and so far it is a very good textbook. Easy to read, lots of examples. I didn't purchase the internet lab access code, however it is possible for the people who would like to watch videos and do practice exercises.

I have found this book an asset to my learning. I know it was set by the university as a text book but it has become invaluable to me in my studies. I highly recommend it as a good resource to better learning or brush up on old skills.

Great material for the class assigned. Teacher was nice enough to let us purchase this edition instead of the most current.
