For Child Development and Child/Adolescent Development courses taught in education departments. Child Development and Education, Third Edition is the only comprehensive child development text written specifically for educators. Written by a developmentalist and an educational psychologist, it provides the coverage and research found in the best child development texts but also then helps readers understand how to use this information as educators. Another unique aspect of the text is how it illustrates concepts using children's and adolescents' school work, case studies, and a three volume video CD that comes packaged with the book. These features of the text help readers actually see development, not simply read about it. Unique features include authentic student artifacts; observation guidelines with educational applications; development and practice features with concrete strategies for facilitating student development and learning; a chapter on development in reading, writing, math, and science; and extensive coverage of diversity and how as an educator to help all students thrive.

Focusing on concepts and principles that are important to developmental theorists and to educational practitioners, this text is uniquely useful to those interested in the educational implications of developmental scholarship.Unique Features:
Applies Developmental Theory to Classroom Practice: Development and Practice features offer concrete educational strategies for facilitating student development. Observation Guidelines tables help the reader develop skills in observing developmental nuances in children and adolescents.
Showcases Real Students and Their Work: The text extensively illustrates concepts and research with cases about and artifacts from real children and adolescents. Authentic case studies begin and end each chapter. The text also makes frequent use of actual artifacts from children's journals, sketchbooks, and school assignments.
Explores the Core Themes in Development: Every chapter examines ways in which development is the complex product of interacting forces—nature, nurture, and children's own efforts. The authors also spotlight universal developmental trends and areas marked with substantial diversity. Finally, the text analyzes developmental changes for their underlying nature: do they take the form of dramatic qualitative changes, or are they the outcome of many small, trend-like quantitative changes?
