The best-selling CHILD, FAMILY, SCHOOL, COMMUNITY: SOCIALIZATION AND SUPPORT, now in its Tenth Edition, offers an excellent introduction to socialization that is grounded in a powerful conceptual framework-Urie Bronfenbrenner's Bioecological Model of Human Development. Examining how the school, family, and community influence children's socialization, this book addresses complex issues in a clear, comprehensive fashion. An enjoyable read, it's packed with meaningful, timely examples and learning aids that ensure you gain a solid understanding of chapter concepts. A sensitive presentation of diversity issues includes matters related to culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and special needs. Updated throughout, this edition features a strong emphasis on NAEYC and NASW standards as well as a new neuroscience feature called "Brain Briefs."
