You’re in good hands and needn’t feel intimidated by the life-span course with HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: A LIFE-SPAN VIEW, SIXTH EDITION as your guide. Complete, yet succinct and filled with real-life examples that aid understanding, the text has proven its ability to capture students’ interest while introducing them to the issues, forces, and outcomes that make us who we are. The efficient organization (chronological, but with a few chapters on key topical issues) allows this text to be briefer than many other texts for the same course. The material is relevant, too: You’ll gain the foundations in important theories and research that enable you to become educated interpreters of developmental information in your future careers. In addition, basic and applied research along with controversial topics and emergent trends demonstrate connections between the laboratory and life. Media resources including an online study tool with videos and exercises that clarify topics and help you pinpoint areas needing further study add support to help you succeed in the course.
