This is the most current text on child and adolescent development for teachers available on the market. Covering early childhood through high school in an easy-to-follow format, the book provides teachers with authentic, research-based strategies and guidelines for their classrooms. A strong emphasis on diversity among children is reflected throughout. The authors specifically apply child development concepts to topics of high interest and relevance to teachers, including social-emotional development, classroom discipline, humor, constructivism, and many others. Case studies and real-world vignettes further bridge the distance between research and the classroom, helping students be better prepared to create an environment that promotes optimal development in children.
