Although the field of child and adolescent development seems to be an easy one in which to provide active learning opportunities to students, few textbooks currently exist that actually do this.Child Development: An Active Learning Approach includes the following key features:- Challenging Misconceptions: true/false or multiple choice tests are incorporated at the beginning of each chapter to specifically address topics that are sources of misunderstanding amongst students.- Activities with children and adolescents: 'hands-on' activities that complement the ideas of the text, as an integral part of the text, rather than as 'œadd-ons' at the end of each chapter.- 'The journey of research' will introduce students to the process of research that leads from early findings to more refined outcomes through real-life examples- 'Test Yourself' sections include activities that cause students to reflect on an issue through their own experiences to bring about increased motivation and understanding of a specific topic.- The Instructor's Resource CD-ROM includes a computerized test bank, PowerPoint Slides, sample syllabi, suggested in-class learning activities, and homework assignments.- The Student Study Site includes interactive videos, self-quizzes, key term flashcards, SAGE journal articles with accompanying exercises, and web links with accompanying exercises.

Laura E. Levine received her PhD in developmental and clinical psychology from the University of Michigan. After working with children and families at the Chil�drenrsquo;s Psychiatric Hospital and in private practice in Ann Arbor for 10 years, she moved to Connecticut and was a stay-at-home mother of her two children for 6 years. She returned to academia in 1994 and has been teach�ing child psychology and life span human development for over 15 years at Central Connecticut State University, where she is currently a professor in the Department of Psychology. She has received two teaching awards, and her research on the social development of young children and on the relation of media use to attention difficulties has appeared in journals such as Developmental Psychology, the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, Infant Mental Health Journal, Infant and Child Development, Computers and Education, and CyberPsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking.Dr. Levine has been very active in promoting excellence in college teaching. She was involved in the creation of the Center for Teaching Excellence and Leadership Develop�ment at Central Connecticut State University and served on the board of the Connecti�cut Consortium to Enhance Learning and Teaching. She created numerous programs for faculty both at her university and at regional and national conferences. Her work on the scholarship of teaching and learning can be found in New Directions for Teaching and Learning, College Teaching, and the International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
