Using a topical approach to cover development from early childhood through adolescence, this book provides future teachers with authentic, research-based strategies and guidelines for their classrooms. The authors apply child development concepts to topics of high interest and relevance to teachers, including classroom discipline, constructivism, social-emotional development and well-being, and many others. A strong emphasis on individual and group diversity among children is reflected throughout. Field observation assignments help students to apply the science to children's experiences in the classroom. Case studies and real-world vignettes from authentic classroom situations further bridge the distance between research and the classroom. By linking theory, research, and practice -- and emphasizing application -- the book helps to equip future teachers with the tools to create an environment that promotes optimal development in children.
