Description : Unlike other child and adolescent development textbooks, Child and Adolescent Development for Educators by Judith Meece is written specifically for teacher education majors and for professionals in the field of education. It focuses entirely on the development of school-age children and youth, and provides deep coverage of those topics of most immediate concern to teachers such as cognitive development, social and emotional development, language development, literacy, individual differences in development, and children with special needs. Few texts provide this depth of coverage. The author is an expert in teacher education, having taught child and adolescent development to education majors for over fourteen years.Child and Adolescent Development for Educators also helps students to see how developmental research can be applied in educational settings. Each chapter discusses the implication of research for teaching, and the text includes pedagogical features focusing on teaching applications. It is the only development textbook that emphasizes applications to educational settings in this way. For the revision new material has been added throughout the text, including a completely new chapter on peers and families and the expansion of the content on personal, social and moral development into two chapters. By the end of the text, students will have a clear understanding of the important role of schools and teachers in children’s lives.

Description : Organized topically to realistically present the three overarching perspectives that guide today's researchers and practitioners of developmental psychology, David Bjorklund and Carlos Hernández Blasi's CHILD AND ADOLESCENT DEVELOPMENT: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH provides not only a truly ground-breaking integrated approach but also the most practical and up-to-date introduction to this vital subject. The authors emphasize applied issues and consistently show how the major perspectives on human development must be integrated -rather than presented as contrasting and sometimes contradictory ways of looking at development -in order to meaningfully understand infants, children, and adolescents as well as how they develop. High-interest boxes including the Biopsychology of Childhood, Evolution in Action, and Socioculturally Speaking appear in rotation throughout the chapters to add both depth and dimension to the presentation of the text's comprehensive core content and featured perspectives. A rich set of pedagogical resources in the text itself and throughout its dynamic suite of online and print supplements helps to ensure that this text engages, enlightens, and challenges students in unique ways. Take a look and see why pre-publication reviewers and class-testers have been raving about the exciting teaching and learning possibilities this new text offers.

Description : Child and Adolescent Development for Educators covers development from early childhood through high school. This text provides authentic, research-based strategies and guidelines for the classroom, helping future teachers to create an environment that promotes optimal development in children. The authors apply child development concepts to topics of high interest and relevance to teachers, including classroom discipline, constructivism, social-emotional development, and many others. Child and Adolescent Development for Educators combines the core theory with practical implications for educational contexts, and shows how child development links to the Australian Professional Standards for Graduate Teachers. Case studies and real-world vignettes further bridge the distance between research and the classroom. Along with strong coverage of key local research such as the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children and Longitudinal Study of Indigenous children.

Description : Child and Adolescent Development: A Behavioral Systems Approach integrates the views of dynamical systems concepts with a behavioral view of development. This combination of perspectives is unique and from it something new emerges – a "behavioral systems approach" to development. It is an approach that incorporates both personal and environmental influences and the constant reciprocal interactions between nature and nurture. The book emphasizes learning as the major process for change in development and the integration of environmental influences with genetic and historical factors. Authors Gary Novak and Martha Pelaez provide a coherent understanding of the learning process in childhood and adolescence and present successful interventions to minimize typical problematic behavior during this period.
