Developing Lives

Developing Person Through Childhood and Adolescence, Twelfth Edition (9781319191740) | Macmillan Learning (2)

GO DIGITAL WITH ACHIEVE

Always current. Always compelling. A journey through child development like no other.

With Macmillan’s superior content delivered by Achieve (full course solution) or Achieve Read & Practice (e-book + online homework), Kathleen Berger’s acclaimed introduction to childhood and adolescence development weaves classic and cutting-edge research, contemporary topics (especially neuroscience and culture), and relatable real stories and personal experiences. Achieve for the text offers additional ways to engage students, including Data Connections, which lets students explore the data behind high-impact research; and Developing Lives, an interactive online experience in which students “raise” a virtual child through adolescence (updated for Fall 2022 with new features and functionality). Chapter Apps, an additional new feature in the text, points students to smartphone apps that can be used to demonstrate real-life applications of developmental research.

Features

ONLINE
New! Achieve for The Developing Person Through Childhood and Adolescence
Achieve sets a whole new standard for integrating assessments, activities, and analytics into your teaching. It brings together all of the high quality features that instructors and students love about its predecessor LaunchPad—interactive e-book, LearningCurve adaptive quizzing and other assessments, immersive learning activities, extensive instructor resources—in a powerful new platform that offers:

  • A cleaner, more intuitive, mobile-friendly interface
  • Powerful analytics
  • Self-regulated learning and goal-setting surveys
  • A fully integrated iClicker classroom response system, with questions available for each unit or the option to integrate your own

Featured in Achieve
Data Connections.
From interactive maps showing rates
of breastfeeding and immunization, to manipulatable graphs showing trends in adolescent risk-taking behaviors, this feature lets students take a hands-on approach to understanding the data in
child development themselves.

Developing Lives (fully integrated into Achieve and also available as a standalone resource). Loaded with interactive features and pedagogy, this remarkable online experience asks students to “raise” a virtual child through adolescence, making crucial decisions and responding to events.

Achieve Read & Practice
E-book + LearningCurve adaptive quizzing

Achieve Read & Practice marries Macmillan Learning’s mobile, accessible e-book with the acclaimed LearningCurve adaptive quizzing. It is an easy-to-use yet exceptionally powerful teaching and learning option that streamlines the process of increasing student engagement and understanding—and the cost is significantly less than that of a printed book.

IN THE TEXT
Kathleen Stassen Berger’s unique voice and approach

Berger makes the concepts and research that drive developmental psychology clear, compelling, and easy to grasp by relating them to the reader’s personal experiences.

Cutting-Edge Research and Neuroscience
Coverage includes new developments in late-breaking research areas, from epigenetics to end-of-life care. Special emphasis is on brain development, culture, genetics, and emotional development, including a special feature called Inside the Brain.

Attention to Cultural Diversity
Berger highlights cultural differences and universals, detailing their impact on the values and customs that shape individual development.

Critical Thinking and Applications-Based Pedagogy
From the chapter-opening stories, to the "A View From Science" features, to the questions presented in "Observational Quizzes" and “Think Critically” marginalia, to the “Visualizing Development” infographics, Berger’s pedagogy has students thinking about the real implications—for themselves and for the world at large—of the material they are learning.

Visualizing Development Infographics
These features map out the key ideas and applications of each chapter graphically, making it easier for visually oriented learners to synthesize and retain the most important material.

New to This Edition

New interactive feature! Chapter Apps direct students to smartphone apps that can be used to demonstrate real-life applications of childhood and adolescent development research..

NEW! Career Alerts present career options in various applied settings.

New and Updated Visualizing Development infographics, such as Immunization (Chapter 5), with assigned questions in LaunchPad

New topics and research including:

  • COVID-19
  • Bilingual education
  • Children separated from parents at the border
  • Impact of political partisanship
  • Updated research on Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Social perspective-taking
  • "Deaths of despair"

“I have used this text since I began teaching at my university in 2000. The information provided in the text compliments the way I like to teach Developmental Psychology, perfectly! “
– Donna Vaught, University of North Carolina – Wilmington

“One major strength is the obvious commitment to discuss and show cultural diversity. The choice of images, the stories told, and the evidence cited all point to this commitment. A second strength is the accessible writing style, which strikes a good balance between breadth and depth of coverage.”
– Daniel Benkendorf, CUNY – Baruch College
