“Child and Adolescent Development in Context is an introductory text for child development that focuses on application of the information, an emphasis on context including culture, and also incorporates updated research on how the brain develops and influences development.”
“Tara L. Kuther has written a textbook that captures the most current aspects of developmental science with its emphasis on context and both current and classic studies of human development while managing to include opportunities for students to apply this new knowledge to their own lives. The textbook is visually engaging and will also help students learn the material with several helpful meta-cognitive features, such as Thinking in Context and Apply Your Knowledge.”
“A new chronological child/adolescent development text that spans from early childhood though emerging adulthood with a specific emphasis on diversity and context in development. The book gives lots of good, modern examples about individual difference (e.g., transgender children) and modern issues (e.g., consent)."
“An easily understandable text that engages students in active learning.”
Department decided to teach the course by topic vs chronologically. But this is an amazing text!
