Key features

KEY FEATURES:

  • A thoroughly integrated emphasis on the role of context in the lifespan and the diverse forms that context takes (gender, race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status, etc.) helps students understand the wide range of dynamic influences that shape human development.
  • Lives in Context and Cultural Influences on Development boxes include compelling examples of contextual and cultural influences on development and highlight issues informed by lifespan research including cyberbullying, cultural differences in childbirth, the gender divide in STEM fields, and more.
  • Applying Developmental Science and Ethical and Policy Applications of Lifespan Development boxes reflect the increasing relevance and influence of developmental science on issues such as the effectiveness of the federal Head Start program, infant sign language, gender disparities in poverty, the availability of family leave, and whether juvenile criminal offenders should face the death penalty.
  • Lifespan Brain Development boxes apply research on neurological development to topics such as the multidimensional “brain-based education” movement, videos that claim to promote precocious infant learning, and how changes in the middle-aged brain relate to behavioral changes typical of individuals in midlife.
  • Thinking in Context critical thinking questions at the end of each section and at the end of each boxed feature encourage students to consider and apply theory and research to solve problems.
  • Chapter-ending Applying Your Knowledge case scenarios, followed by in-depth questions, help students apply their understanding of text concepts to particular situations or problems.
  • Concept maps that introduce each text section and learning objectives (revisited in chapter-ending summaries) anchor student learning goals while emphasizing key text concepts.
  • Original SAGE video demonstrations, interviews, and case studies linked to learning objectives and assessments help students connect concepts in the video back to the text.
  • Dr. Kuther's Chalk Talks, a series of whiteboard-style animations that bring concept maps to life, feature brief, captivating videos that help students learn basic concepts outside of the classroom.
  • Free instructor and student resources include whiteboard author lectures, quizzes, PowerPoint slides, an extensive test bank, SAGE journal articles and a FREE interactive eBook.
