Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 

For undergraduate courses in Child Development taught Chronologically. 

 

Boyd/Bee provides students the most support for learning and success.

 

The Growing Child emphasizes how the three domains of development — physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional — interact with each other and with the environment to affect developmental outcomes. Featuring an innovative student-focused format, it provides the self-assessment tools necessary to keep students engaged in active learning from start to finish, as well as the most support to help students organize, understand, and apply the material.

Synopsis:

MyDevelopmentLab with MyVirtualChild is a learning and assessment tool that allows instructors to assess student performance and adapt course content without investing a lot of additional time or resources.
