  • Clinical and classroom-based methods for assessing learning and development of young children are presented.
  • The use of assessment data in teaching and parenting are fully explored.

Review:

“The textbook certainly has a lot of strengths.  I believe that overall the textbook is unique in its multicultural approach.  It is also very reader friendly and contains the information that is essential to understanding the development of children. . . . [T]his text is one of the few that truly does focus on the early development years.  Additionally, it is one of the only [texts] that has the multicultural emphasis.”

   —Keri Maxwell, West Virginia University

 

“I use the text because it is the only one that I have found with a true multicultural focus throughout, not just a “multicultural” chapter at the end of the book. . . . [The W]riting is excellent, especially helpful are the examples and vignettes. . . . [The] organization of each chapter tells what is important through questions at beginning of chapter and helps students know what are important points. . . [The book] gives multiple examples of how content is applied; gives a review of important points; and gives application ideas at the end of each chapter.  [A] strength [of Chapter 18] is looking at family issues (poverty, oppression, etc.) and going through the different age ranges covered in this book. That helped to integrate that knowledge about families and apply it across ages.”

   —Sandra Newcomb, University of Maryland, College Park

 

“I like the multicultural perspective to broaden students’ thinking about culture, development ,and families. . . . [And] I really like . . . the developmental progression approach and that just enough information is provided for students who want to read more in an area beyond the scope of the course.  The writing style is very clear and digestible for my students.”

—Karen M. La Paro, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

 

 

“Excellent text. . . . [T]he author has done an outstanding job of presenting key concepts in a readable, understandable, and relational way.  Excellent Research into Practice [feature].”

   —Marilee Cosgrove, California State University, Fullerton
