In the Third Edition of the topically organized Child Development: An Active Learning Approach, authors Laura E. Levine and Joyce A. Munsch invite students to take an active journey toward understanding the latest findings from the field of child development. Using robust pedagogical tools built into the chapter narratives, students are challenged to confront myths and misconceptions, participate in real-world activities with children and independently, and utilize video resources and research tools to pursue knowledge and develop critical thinking skills on their own.

This new edition covers the latest findings on developmental neuroscience, positive youth development, the role of fathers, and more, with topics of diversity and culture integrated throughout.

More than a textbook, this one-of-a-kind resource will continue to serve students as they go on to graduate studies, to work with children and adolescents professionally, and to care for children of their own.

Recensioner i media

"Test Your Knowledge is a good introduction to inform students of what they do not know; thereby reinforcing their need to READ the chapter!"

"I appreciate this feature [Test Your Knowledge] because it sets the stage for learning and activates prior knowledge."

"Very engaging and effective. Attention grabber. The questions/your answers stick with you as you read the chapter allowing one to either confirm or change their thinking." 

"I really like the learning goals and the end of chapter summaries. With so much content, it is helpful to have a reminder of the most important points from the chapter at the end." 

"I really appreciated the Active Learning Exercises! Wow. These are probably the best that I have seen for these. I also appreciated the focus on careers, as well as being a good consumer of research…. I was especially impressed with the Test Your Knowledge openers. I could envision myself using these for each chapter as a discussion starter in class."

"The Active Learning sections are particularly engaging.  I believe students will really enjoy doing these on their own, and it is also something that I can facilitate in the classroom…. The Test Your Knowledge section is also a favorite of mine. This is an engaging and useful tool to help students focus their learning…My students would enjoy a text that encourages such deeper and effective interaction – less passive reading – and pushes critical thinking."
