Publisher Comments:

For Human Development/Lifespan Development courses organized topically.

 

Life Span Development: A Topical Approach  is based on the chronologically-organized, highly popular Development Across the Life Span, is be approximately 20% shorter than traditional lifespan books and organized topically .

 

Feldman maintains the student friendliness that has been the hallmark of Feldman's other development textbooks.  It is rich in examples and illustrates the applications that can be derived from the research and theory of lifespan developmentalists.  It pays particular attention to the applications that can be drawn from theory and research in the field.

 

To optimize student learning and to provide instructors with maximum flexibility, the book uses a modular approach.  Consequently, rather than facing long, potentially daunting chapters, students encounter material that is divided into smaller, more manageable chunks (modules).  Presenting material in small chunks represents a structure that research long ago found to be optimum for promoting learning.
