Covering development from early childhood through high school in an easy-to-follow format, this book provides you with authentic, research-based strategies and guidelines for your classrooms. The authors apply child development concepts to topics of high interest and relevance to teachers, including social-emotional development, classroom discipline, humor, constructivism, and many others. Diversity and multicultural issues are integrated throughout. Case studies and real-world vignettes further bridge the distance between research and the classroom, helping you be better prepared to create an environment that promotes optimal development in children. With its practical classroom-based focus, this text will help you view all students more positively, give you the tools to deal effectively with them, and make teaching more enjoyable.
