Synopsis

For Child Development courses in Psychology, Education, Human Development, Child and Family Studies and Early Childhood Education.



Written by a well-respected researcher in Cognitive Development, this text presents the core research, theory and applications of Developmental Psychology organized in a Chronological format. There are three key elements to Kail's approach. First, Kail integrates the field by presenting four fundamental themes in child development research. These themes are used throughout the book to provide students with a foundation. Second, Kail introduces research methods in Chapter 2, and revisits methods again in every chapter. Additionally, each chapter is organized into a series of 3-5 manageable chapter modules and incorporates a number of effective learning tools to help the students retain and apply the information. Finally, Kail includes many applications demonstrating how research translates into practice.
