CHILD M SERIES / Edition 1 available in Paperback
CHILD Built by RESEARCH. Grounded in SCHOLARSHIP. Powered by CONNECT.
CHILD is part of an integrated learning solution with Connect, SmartBook, and Milestones, designed to help students learn how biology, psychology, and social forces influence child and adolescent development. CHILD combines a commitment to scholarly content, critical thinking, and real-life application of theory with a visually engaging and dynamic, interactive format.
Paired with the dynamic digital offerings of CHILD is a contemporary textbook design which stems from research on student study habits, learning behaviors, and reader expectations. McGraw-Hill Education conducted in-depth surveys and focus groups with students to understand what makes their reading and learning experiences more engaging, memorable, and enjoyable. We observed students and faculty in classes. We then interviewed instructors to identify their biggest challenges and find out how a completely different way to deliver content could help to overcome those challenges. Students want visually appealing course materials with interactive pedagogy, an integrated approach, and relevant content geared to different learning styles. Faculty told us they want a way to engage their students without compromising academic quality.
Portable, multimodal, and visual CHILD offers a dynamic learning experience designed for today’s students.
