For Child Development in Psychology, Education, Human Development, Child and Family Studies and Early Childhood Education particularly in applied College courses. Written by a well-respected researcher in Cognitive Development and a noted Canadian clinical psychologist, the text on which the Canadian edition is based presents the core research, theory and applications of Developmental Psychology in a chronological framework within an attractive, profusely illustrated modular format. There are four key elements to this innovative text. First, each chapter is organized into a series of 3-5 manageable modules and incorporates a number of effective learning tools to help students retain and apply the information. Secondly, Kail and Zolner integrate the field by consistently presenting four fundamental themes in child development research. These themes are used throughout the book to provide students with a multi-layered foundation. Thirdly, Kail and Zolner introduce research methods in Chapter 2, and revisit methods again in every chapter. And finally, this text includes many applications demonstrating how research translates into practice.
