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, fromthe 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.
