For courses in Life Span Development and Human Development.
This chronologically organized text provides students with a broad overview of the field of human development—from the moment of conception through death—focusing on physical, cognitive, and social and personality development. Appealing to the many different backgrounds and career goals of students, this text offers the most current, balanced coverage of theory and research—with a focus on the application of that research, woven into a rich presentation filled with useful student learning tools. Feldman's unique approach illustrates the scope and diversity of the field and capitalizes on students' inherent interest in the subject of human development by asking them to relate what they are learning to their own experience as developing humans. Feldman's ability to capitalize on that interest, offer students a wealth of “take home” information, and keep that interest alive through a friendly, conversational style, reaps a lively classroom and engaged students.
