Maybe an updated version would be better. Better and more modern pictures, a nicer cover, and recent findings and studies.read more
I found the whole thing to be interesting and really enjoyed learning about human development. I want to work with children so I especially appreciated the sections about childhood.
Very clearly organized. Easy to follow text. The authors explanations were explicit and led to thoughtful conversations during class. I was able to refer back to the text to study for exams.read more
There were parts of the text that we did not get to in class.
Family life span - It was a class on looking into the human life span from birth to the grave.read more
I like this book because it use real examples and case studies. The inserts on careers is also a favorite because it gives one a insight on what a typical day is like for counselors, child life and social workers. This book is a breath of fresh air in the library of many stuffy, boring books on this subject. I will go back and refer to this book often.
It was harder to understand just because of the terms and other things, but once the teacher explained the material, it was easier to understand. The part I had trouble with is the review for each chapter, but the reason for that was the teacher made the tests different from what the review covered.read more
Maybe create a website where students can study for the tests and interact with what the teacher is teaching them. It is a good book, just difficult to understand in some areas.
Chapter 1-2 where. It talks about cultures and genetics, it really just made uninterested Because I have read and went over the subjects in many other classes.read more
They basic cover the same material about beginning of life and the end.
This book was very helpful to me. This book explained behavior so well, and it also was up to date on current trends and behaviors in all stages of life.read more
I learned the importance of the development of each individual is different, depending on their upbringing, as well as many other factors that come into play. As we age, our development adapts as well.
