Informed and driven by research both into the subject of life-span development and into the needs of your development course, Life Span Development is the latest addition to the Santrock brand, written specifically for students in Australia and New Zealand. Our author team is comprised of developmental psychology researchers and academics from across Australia and New Zealand, writing in the specific areas of life span development that they teach and research in, to ensure you have access to the best content, including local statistics, case studies (such as Cathy Freeman and Martin Bryant) and examples. Developed to help all students study more efficiently and effectively, Life Span Development helps students to complete and understand the assigned material in a number of ways.The learning objectives framework provides a comprehensive roadmap to the text material, clearly pointing out the core concepts fundamental to students' learning and performance. Developmental Connection and Looking Forward/Back features highlight connections between topics/chapters, allowing students to link these concepts and form a topical view of development. Students also have access to market-leading digital resources to suit all learning styles and improve student grades and engagement. Connect has been developed alongside the text's learning objectives to aid student comprehension of core concepts through a range of interactive activities. McGraw-Hill's LearnSmart increases students' efficiency in studying by identifying what they know and don't know and provides immediate remediation, helping them to learn the material they are struggling with. And for real-life application of the core development concepts, Milestones video and assessment program helps bring the course material to life, so students can witness real children developing over time.
