Connect with John Santrock's Topical Approach to Lifespan Development and connect with success.

Informed and driven by research. At McGraw-Hill, we have spent thousands of hours with you and your students, working to understand the key needs and concerns you face in the Human Development course. The most common topics raised include managing the vast amount of content inherent to a Lifespan course and ensuring the dependability of the assigned material – is it current and accurate? The result of this research is John Santrock's A Topical Approach to Lifespan Development, 7e.

Santrock ensures students complete and understand the assigned material in a number of ways: Santrock's hallmark Learning Goals pedagogy provides a comprehensive roadmap to the text material, clearly pointing out the core concepts fundamental to students' learning and performance. McGraw-Hill's LearnSmart increases students' efficiency in studying by identifying what they know and don't know and provides immediate remediation, helping them to learn the material they are struggling with. The connections theme continues in the 7th edition, showing students the different aspects of lifespan development and helping them to better understand the concepts. This recurring theme of connections – Developmental Connections, Topical Connections, Connecting Development to Life, Connecting with Careers, and Connections through Research – ties together concepts from across chapters to reinforce the learning process and connect the material to students' everyday lives and future aspirations. McGraw-Hill's Milestones video and assessment program helps bring the course material to life, so your students can witness real children developing over time. And of course, all of this material is informed by our unique board of expert contributors – a who's who of developmental psychology – who ensure the material is as accurate and up-to-date as possible.
