Filling a tremendous need, this is the first graduate-level child development text written specifically for future educators. From eminent authorities, the volume provides a solid understanding of major theories of development, focusing on how each has informed research and practice in educational contexts. Topics include the impact of biology and early experiences on the developing mind; the development of academic competence and motivation; how learning is influenced by individual differences, sociocultural factors, peers, and the family environment; what educators need to know about child mental health; and more. Every chapter features a quick-reference outline, definitions of key terms, and boxes addressing special topics of interest to educators.

Special feature: Instructors considering this book for course adoption will automatically be e-mailed a test bank (in RTF format) that includes objective test items, essay questions, and case questions based on classroom scenarios.

"I will continue to require this 'must-have' text in my courses. Each chapter interweaves key topics in development with important research and makes direct connections to classroom practice. This is one of the very few texts that situate foundational information in a clear classroom setting. My teacher candidates have a wide range of experience with child development, and this text is useful for learners of all levels. The format is engaging and challenging; every chapter promotes conversation and offers opportunities for further investigation. Valuable updated topics in the second edition include neuroscience and gender, plus updated research throughout."--Nicole Merino, PhD, School of Education, Stanford University

"The second edition includes current research and informative new content, and continues to be a great fit for graduate-level teacher education programs. It is well organized and easy to read, even for those new to developmental theory. The text succinctly covers important theories and concepts relevant for understanding children's development in order to be a successful teacher, with helpful examples provided throughout."--Alan B. Bates, PhD, School of Teaching and Learning, Illinois State University

"The second edition of this outstanding text captures major biological, cognitive, social learning, and sociocultural research advances since the first edition. An especially relevant addition is the expanded chapter on contemporary mental health issues facing families and youth, such as the impact of school climate for students of different gender identities and efforts to deal with new forms of cyberbullying and peer pressure. Throughout the text, interesting developmental and educational studies are used to demonstrate how ideas are evaluated in the lab, clinic, and classroom. Instructors who use this text will ensure students leave with a comprehensive understanding of critical developmental concepts and their implications for school routines and educational practices."--Gloria E. Miller, PhD, Endowed Professor in Literacy, Morgridge College of Education, University of Denver
