Publisher Comments:

Topically-arranged and teacher-focused, Child and Adolescent Development for Educators is a richly contextual research-based foundation in the science of development that is ideal for future teachers. Attending to the development of school-aged children and youth, the brevity of the text and the diversity of in-text activities give teacher educators ample opportunity to assign observations and other school-based projects.
