I bought this loose-leaf version of this textbook in a "package" that included an online access code for an e-book as well. I will include both for the price, as well as the binder to keep the loose-leaf together upon sending, since I have removed the shrink wrap.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
From reviews of the text:
“I consider this one of the best child development texts in existence… far more applied than the majority of textbooks and dedicated to an unbiased, culturally diverse description of development.”
– Lisa Pescara-Kovach, The University of Toledo
“This is the strongest, most informative text on Child Development that I have encountered….The sensitivity to cultural and bioecological issues is just outstanding. …The information is current and is presented in great detail and depth. I also appreciate the strong supplemental resources that are made available to students.”
– John Corey Steele, Loyola University Chicago
“The reason that we continue to use this text is that it is the best one that covers the theory of child development along with practical applications, in particular to teaching…. Seeing written and drawn products helps future teachers analyze the kinds of artifacts that they can expect to see in the classroom.”
– Elizabeth Pemberton, University of Delaware
“The synthesis and summaries of research in each of the chapters are very detailed … suggestions for application in each chapter are appropriate and in line with the research evidence … observation guidelines are helpful for students to anticipate what to look for when working with children. It is also written in a very accessible style.”
– Julia Torquati, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
About the Author:
Teresa M. McDevitt is a psychologist with specializations in child development and educational psychology. She received a Ph.D. and M.A. in child development from Stanford University's Psychological Studies in Education program, an Ed.S. in educational evaluation from Stanford University and a B.A. in psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Since 1985 she has served the University of Northern Colorado in a variety of capacities—in teaching courses in child and adolescent psychology, human development, educational psychology, program evaluation, and research methods; in advisement of graduate students; in administration and university governance; and in research and grant writing. Her research interests include children's listening and communication skills, families, teacher education, and science education. She has published articles in such journals as Child Development, Learning and Individual Differences, Child Study Journal, Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, Youth and Society, and Science Education, among others. She has gained extensive practical experience with children, including raising two children with her husband and working in several capacities with children—as an early childhood teacher of toddlers and preschool children, an early childhood special education teacher, a scout leader, and a volunteer in school and community settings. When she has the chance, Teresa enjoys traveling internationally with her family, and spending time with her children and husband.
