Description

Product Description

This popular, topically organized, and thoroughly updated child and adolescent development text presents you with the best theories, research, and practical advice that developmentalists have to offer today. Authors David R. Shaffer and Katherine Kipp provide you with a current and comprehensive overview of child and adolescent development, written in clear, concise language that talks "to" you rather than "at" you. The authors also focus on application showing how theories and research apply to real-life settings. As a result, you will gain an understanding of developmental principles that will help you in your roles as parents, teachers, nurses, day-care workers, pediatricians, psychologists, or in any other capacity by which you may one day influence the lives of developing persons. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Review

"The writing is so clear and straightforward that students would not get confused. It is clear that the authors were thoughtful about how to present the material to students. The inclusion of recent research from cognitive neuroscience is another positive aspect. The wealth of resources available to students and instructors would allow me recommend this textbook to a colleague who is teaching both childhood and adolescence."

"This is an excellent textbook that takes a topical rather than a chronological approach to child and adolescent development. This topical approach makes it much more effective in fitting it into a single semester, with the idea of covering one topic each week throughout the semester. The coverage is detailed and provides sufficient depth that students can really get a basic understanding of the key concepts for the course. Also, the built-in Concept Checks throughout the text help students determine whether or not they have mastered key concepts from one section before they move onto the next section of the material."

"It is a well-written text that is organized similarly to most developmental psychology texts. The level of difficulty is appropriate for undergraduates. It is a very solid text."

This is NOT your boring text book. It is interesting and I learned a lot. I bought this book for supplemental reading and I learned more from this book and the study guide than I learned from the text book for the class. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is studying child psychology.

Ordered this book to accompany teaching of a Child and Adolescent development class. This edition certainly takes new research into account while integrating into foundation and scaffolding built by previous editions. Colorful pictures and appropriate highlights and tables make this textbook an easy companion for teaching that (although quite pricey) students appear able to connect with.
