Developmental Psychology: Childhood and Adolescence (9th Edition) – eBook PDF
Developmental Psychology, 9th Edition, (PDF) provides you with the best theories, research, and practical advice that developmentalists have to present today. Authors Katherine Kipp and David R. Shaffer offer you an existing and comprehensive overview of child and adolescent development, written in concise, clear language that talks “to” you rather than “at” you. The authors also stress application, showing how theories and research apply to real-life settings. Thus, you will gain an understanding of developmental principles that will assist you in your roles as parents, teachers, nurses, day-care workers, psychologists, pediatricians, or in any other capacity by which you may one day impact the lives of developing persons.
“It is a well-written text that is structured similarly to most developmental psychology texts. The level of difficulty is suitable for undergraduates. It is an excellent textbook.”
“The writing is so simple and straightforward that students would not get confused. It is clear that the authors were considerate about how to present the material to students. The inclusion of the latest research from cognitive neuroscience is another positive aspect. The wealth of resources available to instructors and students would allow me to recommend this textbook to a colleague who is teaching both childhood and adolescence.”
“This is a remarkable textbook that takes a topical rather than a chronological approach to child and adolescent development. This topical approach makes it much more helpful in fitting it into a single semester, with the objective of covering one topic each week throughout the semester. The coverage is thorough and provides sufficient depth that students can understand the core concepts for the course. Also, the built-in Concept Checks throughout the ebook help students determine whether or not they have mastered core concepts from one section before they move onto the next section of the material.”
