Why are you assigning or considering a brief Human Development text? Is it because your students do not complete the reading in a comprehensive text? Do you run out of time trying to cover the entire lifespan over the course of a few months? Do your students struggle to retain the sheer volume of information in the course? Instructors across the country, looking for a streamlined text that captures the core concepts of life-span development are excited for John Santrock's Essentials of Life-Span Development, 3e.
Essentials of Life-Span Development 3e was developed to help meet the ever-changing needs of students in the lifespan course. Knowing that students do not often read the text and have poor study skills, Essentials introduces LearnSmart, McGraw-Hill's adaptive study tool, that helps students know what they know, and more importantly what they don’t know, to become more efficient and effective learners. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.
Based on hallmark features: its expert contributors, updated research, and focus on applications, Santrock provides the most dependable and current presentation of life-span development available, and he does so in a briefer format with LearnSmart, helping to ensure that your students will read and appreciate the material while seeing the applications to their everyday life. McGraw-Hill's new Milestones video and assessment program helps bring the course material to life, so your students can witness development as it unfolds.
