In this child development text for students in education, focus is on concepts that are important to developmental theorists and to educational practitioners. Some learning features include discussion of the relevance of specific material to teachers and others who work with children, examples of teachers using particular strategies in classrooms, and tables of student observation guidelines. Core developmental issues are reinforced through boxes comparing developmental perspectives and tables summarizing developmental trends of four age groups. Authentic case studies begin and end each chapter, and the text makes frequent use of children's and adolescents' drawings, journals, and school assignments. The authors are affiliated with the University of Northern Colorado. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
