This accessible text-now revised and updated-has given thousands of future educators a solid grounding in developmental science to inform their work in schools. The book reviews major theories of development and their impact on educational practice. Chapters examine how teaching and learning intersect with specific domains of child and adolescent development-language, intelligence and intellectual diversity, motivation, family and peer relationships, gender roles, and mental health. Pedagogical features include chapter summaries, definitions of key terms, and boxes addressing topics of special interest to educators. Instructors requesting a desk copy receive a supplemental test bank with objective test items and essay questions for each chapter. (First edition authors: Michael Pressley and Christine B.
