Hundreds of New Research Citations
As always, Kathleen Berger offers a thoroughly contemporary view of where the study of child/adolescent development is, and where it’s heading.  Coverage includes new discussions of:

  • Concussions in adolescence
  • The impact of prenatal environment on development
  • Immunizations and the anti-vaccine movement
  • Impact of media on development of very young children and infants.
  • The impact of the family on child development, with an expanded and updated understanding of the diversity of families today including single-parent, same-sex, extended family configurations.
  • The experience of immigration on child development.
  • The latest data, theories and DSM 5 criteria on common psychological disorders of childhood and adolescence including Autism Spectrum Disorder and Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder.
  • The impact of economic changes on emerging adults—including the rise in student debt and the increasing numbers of young people living with their parents

Integrated Assessment Throughout the Book
The new edition provides learning objectives for each chapter, assessments after every chapter section, and expanded end-of-chapter quizzing, all created to meet NAEYC goals and national standards (including APA psychology standards).  All assessments are designed to make it clear to students exactly what they need to learn to meet their career goals.

Quick Response (QR) Codes and Direct Web Addresses
These codes appear in the margin to link students immediately to video activities. Just scan the code with a smartphone or tablet, or type the short Web address into any browser. (Free QR reader apps are available from all mobile device app stores.)

Over 100 New Videos
This edition adds dozens of new video segments to the book’s already exceptional collection, all assignable and assessable through LaunchPad.

Developed with extensive feedback from instructors and students, Worth Publishers’ new online course space offers:

  • Pre-built Units for each chapter, curated by experienced educators, with media for that chapter organized and ready to assign or customize to suit your course.
  • All online resources for the text in one location, including an interactive e-book, LearningCurve adaptive quizzing (see below), videos, all instructor resources, and more.
  • Intuitive and useful analytics, with a Gradebook that lets you see how your class is doing individually and as a whole.
  • A streamlined and intuitive interface that lets you build an entire course in minutes.

NEW! Data Connections: Exclusively on Launch Pad. In each chapter, students have an opportunity to expand their understanding of key topics and data interactively. From interactive maps showing rates of breastfeeding and immunization across the country (and around the world), to manipulatable graphs showing trends in adolescent risk-taking behaviors, students will be able to take a new hands-on-approach to understanding the data in child development themselves.

Available in LaunchPad, the new Child Development and Nursing Career Appendices link the content of the lifespan course to key student career areas—early childhood development and nursing—by correlating the Ninth Edition and its test bank to the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) preparation goals and the NCLEX (nursing) licensure exams.

In a game-like format, LearningCurve adaptive and formative quizzing provides an effective way to get students involved in the coursework. It offers:

  • A unique learning path for each student, with quizzes shaped by each individual’s correct and incorrect answers.
  • A Personalized Study Plan, to guide students’ preparation for class and for exams.
  • Feedback for each question with live links to relevant e-book pages, guiding students to the reading they need to do to improve their areas of weakness.

New Instructor’s Resource Flash Drive
In addition to being housed in LaunchPad, all instructor resources are available in a convenient flash drive, including videos, PowerPoint presentation sets, and the new test bank.
