  • This book provides you with research-based strategies and guidelines for your classroom, whether you will be teaching children in infancy and toddlerhood, high school, or anywhere in between. You'll learn how child development concepts are applied to topics of interest and relevance to teachers, including classroom discipline, teacher-student relationships, increasing intelligence, and many others. Chapters use an easy-to-follow format, and diversity and multicultural issues are integrated throughout. Real-world vignettes bridge the distance between research and your classroom, helping you be better prepared to create an environment that promotes optimal development in all children. With its practical classroom-based focus, this text will help you view all students more positively, give you the tools to effectively guide them, and make teaching more enjoyable.
    • The text specifically applies child development research to teaching, providing an effective bridge between theory and application and featuring a strong, up-to-date research base that is accessible to teachers.

    • Some content is boxed to provide instructors with teaching flexibility; this content can be emphasized to promote deeper understanding or minimized depending on the needs of the course. Three types of boxes are interspersed in chapters: "Theories and Theorists," "Challenges in Development," and "Brain Research."

    • The text is available with MindTap® Education, the digital learning solution that helps instructors engage students and transform them into classroom-ready, reflective teachers. Video cases invite student reflection on real classroom situations dealing with various stages of development. Scenarios ask students to apply chapter concepts and theories to create an artifact that improves teaching and learning. Quizzes help students identify areas where they misunderstood key topics and link back to the related content in the chapter to improve their understanding.
