Child and Adolescent Development for Educators is one of the most accessible and relevant academic books of our time, covering development from early childhood through high school.
This text book provides authentic, research-based strategies and guidelines for the classroom, helping teachers create an environment that promotes optimal development in children.
The authors apply child development concepts to topics of high interest and relevance to teachers, including; classroom behaviour management, constructivism, social-emotional development, and many others.
The text book combines core theory with practical implications for educational contexts and shows how child development links to the Australian Professional Standards for Graduate Teachers.
As one would expect from any good academic book, this publication bridges the distance between research and the classroom by including research (such as; the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children and Longitudinal Study of Indigenous children), case studies and real-world vignettes to illustrate concepts.
