The Development of Children and Adolescents, by Penny Hauser-Cram, J. Kevin Nugent, Kathleen Thies, and John F. Travers, provides an integrated view of child development. Presenting the most pertinent research for each developmental stage and linking this to practical applications in the areas of Parenting, Policy, and Practice, this balanced approach emphasizes the relationship between research and theory and applications. The rich media program, including WileyPLUS with Real Development promotes active learning and allows for increased understanding and comprehension of the course content. Real Development, authored by Nicole Barnes, Ph.D., Montclair State University and Christine Hatchard, Psy.D., Monmouth University, uses authentic video showcasing real families, along with activities and assessments that put students in the place of a professional, to gain an understanding of key concepts. Through the combination of text and media, students are engaged in meaningful learning that deepens and enriches their understanding of developmental concepts. WileyPLUS sold separately from more
