Child and Adolescent Development is an exciting, first edition that offers teacher education a new child development text organized with a chronological approach. This means that descriptions of the physical, cognitive, and social and emotional development of children and adolescents are spiraled throughout the text as discussions examine the characteristics of and the developmental milestones of four major stages of development; infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescents. Each text part investigates the significant changes that happen during that developmental period and discusses what may influence body growth, brain and motor development, language, intelligence, parent and peer relationships, and self identity. Unique to this text is how the discussions are written from a global perspective, not only illustrating the universal and diverse contexts in which children and adolescents grow up but also demonstrating how cultural contexts cultivate the development of language and impact children's and adolescent's world views and their growth. In Child and Adolescent Development, knowledgeable and revered authors, Anita Woolfolk and Nancy Perry, explore the implications and applications of the best research in child development. They provide reliable and practical guidelines to help prospective teachers, and other professionals who intend to work with children and adolescents, recognize typical and atypical development and learn how to support the development of children and adolescents in positive ways
