Summary

Read, Observe, Apply, and Discover with Rathus's text! The hands-on approach of Spencer A. Rathus's chronologically organized CHILDHOODAND ADOLESCENCE: VOYAGES IN DEVELOPMENT, Second Edition augments your goal of helping students understand the link between developmental theories and research and their application to everyday life. By utilizing the proven PQ4R (Preview, Question, Read, Reflect, Review, Recite) pedagogical approach and interspersing personal and humorous stories, Rathus makes reading and studying an enjoyable process of discovery. As students proceed through each chapter, they can observe the principles of development in action by viewing video footage of children at play and in experimental situations as found on the "Observing Children and Adolescents" CD-ROM (included with Rathus' text). Screen grabs from the video, plus coordinating exercises, help students understand and apply what they learn to their current lives and future careers.
