This convenient guide matches the issues in Taking Sides: Clashing Views in Childhood and Society, 9/e with the corresponding chapters in two of our best-selling McGraw-Hill Child Development textbooks by Papalia/Feldman and Santrock.
Proven Learning Goals Pedagogy. This class-tested hallmark of John Santrock's textbooks encompasses learning goals, chapter maps, review and reflect, and reach your learning goals sections, which are all linked together. By following this pedagogical road map, students will read and retain course material more effectively and efficiently.
Connections Between Theory and Applications. Santrock provides a wealth of applied examples to show students the personal meaning child development has for them. In addition to the narrative's applications on health and well-being, parenting, and education, each chapter also boasts a Caring for Children interlude, a Making a Difference feature, and a Resources for Improving Children's Lives section. These all outline important ways to improve the lives of children.
Milestones is a powerful tool that allows students to experience life as it unfolds – from infancy to late adulthood. Milestones consists of two essential components that work together to capture key changes throughout the lifespan: Milestones of Child Development and Milestones: Transitions . In Milestones of Child Development, students track the early stages of physical, social and emotional development. By watching one child over time or comparing various children, Milestones provides a unique, experiential learning environment that can only be achieved by watching real human development as it happens– all in pre- transitional and post milestone segments. In Milestones: Transitions, students meet a series of people, from teenagers to people in late adulthood, to hear their perspective on changes that occur throughout the rest of the lifespan. In addition, McGraw-Hill’s Milestones includes a powerful, customizable assessment tool, to help students and instructors track progress and gage understanding of key course concepts.
