Child and Adolescent Development  takes a chronological approach to the study of child development, with an applied focus.  Authors Anita Woolfolk and Nancy Perry describe the characteristics and the developmental milestones of the major developmental periods -- infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence --  and discuss the implications and applications of research in child development.  The text provides reliable and practical guidelines to help prospective teachers and other professionals working with children to recognize typical and atypical development and to support the development of children and adolescents in positive ways. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video, video analysis exercises, and assessments.

From reviews of the First Edition: 

"[W]ell written with a clear focus on the undergraduate audience, it covers a wide range of relevant topics that undergraduates are interested in, it makes human development theories accessible to undergraduates, and it integrates multiple cultural lenses ... I absolutely love it compared to the other options on the market in this field ."  

-- Michelle Tichy, University of Northern Iowa

 

"The writing style is excellent! ...The Introductory ‘What would you do’ scenarios are great for stimulating critical thinking at the beginning of the class discussions. . . . ‘Connecting with Children’ sections provide helpful guidelines for teachers, families and other professionals. . . . [The text makes an] intentional effort to cover diversity and culture." 

 -- Winnie  Mucherah, Ball State University

 

"One of the reasons I changed to this text was the very clear and interesting writing style. I found myself absorbed in the information even though I have been using these types of texts for decades. The level is appropriate for the students. In addition, if a topic is introduced, it is presented in some depth. . . . There is a great deal of material on practical considerations related to parenting and teaching as well as to cross-cultural issues and diversity. Topics are covered thoroughly and related to one another. I also like the layout of the material in terms of how it appears on the page, ease of reading the print, etc." 

 --  Sandra Twardosz, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
