Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Middle Childhood Development: A Contextual Approach is a new and integrative resource for practitioners who work with children ages 6 through 12. With a focus on the historical and cultural context of middle childhood and on developmental pathways, this text explores the ways in which middle childhood is considered both a stage of development and a transitional period.

 

 

An Emphasis on Application

  • Current research is translated into practical applications for educators, parents, and other professionals.  See the feature "Guideposts for Working with School-age Children" for examples. 
  • In addition, “Stop and Reflect” questions embedded in the text also allow readers to integrate and apply the chapter content to their own lives.

 

An Integrated Discussion of Research and Theories

  • Based on recent research findings, the authors provide suggestions on what to expect and how to interact with children in middle childhood.
  • Rather than one abstract introductory chapter, psychological theories of development are applied throughout the text to address particular chapter content in integrated sections called "Theoretical Viewpoints."  Each chapter also has a cumulative table of the theories presented in that chapter.
  • Each chapter includes key research on the ecologies of home, school, and community highlighted in separate sections called "Contexts of Development."
  • In each chapter, pedagogical boxes called "Roadmap to Understanding Theory and Research" and "Roadmap to Successful Practice" are included that alert students to key illustrations of chapter content.

This book is so outdate that there is no way the information is still relevant today! I had to buy this for a class I was taking, and it is so annoying because I know the information is no longer relevant. thank goodness I only rented it.

This textbook wasn't very impressive, I think they should revise it extensively. I felt as if I was reading components of the many psychology/child developments texts I have read since starting college. I did not feel as if there was any different information or cohesiveness of the ideas compiled to create this book. My professor was leary about using the text and I wished she had excluded it so I wouldn't have had to spend too much money on it.

It is how it was described, highlighting and a torn corner. However I wasn't expecting as much highlighting as there is, it looks like someone got waaaaay to excited with highlighters and it is very distracting.
