9780132432764: Child Development and Education with Observing Children & Adolescents CD PKG. (3rd Edition)

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.

Child Development and Education, Third Edition

Teresa M. McDevitt and Jeanne Ellis Ormrod

 

The Only Comprehensive Development Text Written Specifically for Educators

More than any other development text, McDevitt/Ormrod 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.
    • Observation Guidelines tables help students learn to observe developmental nuances in children and adolescents.
    • New! Applying Concepts in Child Development tables at the end of each chapter provides scenarios connected to developmental concepts and allow students to practice applying their knowledge of development in making educational decisions.

 

The Difference Between Reading About Development and Seeing It

More than any other text, McDevitt/Ormrod illustrates concepts with case studies; artifacts from journals, sketchbooks, and schoolwork; and digital video footage.

    • Each chapter begins and ends with a Case Study and includes other integrated vignettes.
    • New! Interpreting Children’s Artifacts and Actions feature provides practice in evaluating student work and applying new knowledge authentically.
    • A set of 3 CDs with video segments, Observing Children and Adolescents, allows students to explore 14 topics, including Memory, Friendship, and Families, from the perspective of children from five age groups.

 

New and Expanded Content

    • New coverage of development in reading, writing, mathematics, science, history, geography, art, and music is added in Chapter 10, “Development in the Content Domains.”
    • Separate chapters on Prenatal Development (Chapter 3) and Physical Development (Chapter 4) are included.
    • Concrete practice for students in applying developmental concepts in educational settings receives even greater emphasis throughout the text and in new features like Interpreting Children’s Artifacts and Actions and Applying Concepts in Child Development

 

        

 

 

Review:

"I absolutely love the applied approach that is taken in this textbook and believe that this type of approach is optimal for preservice teachers in their understanding of child development...I find the artifacts to be beneficial to my students (especially teaching majors) by providing them with “evidence” in the developmental processes of children."

 

-Kristen K. Williams, Ball State University
