Description

Like no other text, The Development of Children tells the story of how biological and cultural processes intertwine over the course of childhood. Building on the legacy of Michael and Sheila Cole, and now under the lead authorship of Cynthia Lightfoot, this acclaimed textbook enters an exciting new era, bringing an integrated biocultural perspective to the teaching and learning of child development. Within the chronological organization of the book, you will find a continued emphasis on contemporary research, biology and the brain, the linking of theory to practice, and the emphasis on cultural issues that have earned the textbook enthusiastic support edition after edition. But you will also find a fresh new vision and voice. This thoroughly revised text guides students through the latest scholarship on the biological and cultural processes that frame the interacting physical, cognitive, social, and emotional domains of development.
