  • The new 2020 National Association for the Education of Young Children Professional Preparation Standards (NAEYC) are cited throughout the ninth edition. The standards are identified at the beginning of each chapter so students can easily see where content-relevant information is addressed. These callouts and the standards correlation chart help students make connections between what they are learning in the textbook and professional expectations. The chart and chapter-by-chapter standards also provide a handy reference for faculty involved in program accreditation.
  • All-new information has been added on critical developmental issues such as attachment, sexual identity and conformity, socio-ecological factors and developmental risk, material obesity and fetal development, media use, mental health, morality and more.
  • Thoroughly updated with the latest developments from the field, the ninth edition is packed with new references and links to current research.
  • Several all-new TeachSource videos complement the ninth edition. A popular resource with students and instructors alike, the videos are introduced in the text and viewable online, presenting footage that helps students relate key chapter content to real-life scenarios. Critical-thinking questions provide further opportunities for lively in-class or online discussions as well as reflection.
  • Positive Behavior Guidance sections outline effective strategies for promoting children's social-emotional competence through the use of constructive behavior guidance responses.
  • Engaging case studies presented at the onset of each chapter reflect the ethnic diversity in today's schools, set the stage for content that follows and encourage students to relate what they learn to real-life situations.
  • Reflecting current safety concerns associated with each developmental stage, Safety Alerts are designed to help adults create safe environments, maintain quality supervision and support children's safety education.
  • Assessment tests commonly used to evaluate development in infants, young children and adolescents are identified and described in Appendix B.
  • Learning Objectives identified at the beginning of each chapter point students to important concepts they need to know and understand. After completing the chapter, students should be able to demonstrate how they can use and apply their new knowledge and skills. Learning objectives are also reflected in the end-of-chapter summary.
  • Daily activities and routines typical at each age level are provided in each chapter to help families and teachers anticipate and respond appropriately to children's developmental interests and needs.
  • Included in each chapter, Spotlight on Brain Development features draw attention to the latest neurocognitive research on critical issues such as the gene-brain-autism connection, maternal obesity, breast milk, early adversity, sleep, music, physical activity, adolescence impulsivity and premature birth as well as their connections to children's brain development.
  • Technical terms are defined on the page where they appear, ensuring students have a thorough understanding of key concepts before they progress further through the text.
  • Did You Know? features included in the margins provide interesting facts that spark students' curiosity and engagement with chapter content.
  • Early intervention resources are described in Appendix C and at the end of each chapter. Educators and service providers find this information especially useful for assisting families and locating additional resources and technical support.
  • Uniform chapter organization is used throughout the textbook to facilitate learning and the location of critical information. Educators and service providers also find this feature especially useful and efficient.
  • A correlation chart linking current InTASC standards to chapter content also provides a helpful reference.
  • Downloadable and often customizable, practical and professional digital resources enable students to immediately implement and apply chapter concepts in the field. Students can download these tools and keep them forever, equipping preservice teachers with proven resources to begin building their own libraries. A TeachSource Digital Downloads label identifies these items for quick reference.
  • Developmental Alerts highlighted at each age level help in the early identification of potential delays and/or developmental problems that warrant further evaluation.
  • Concise developmental profiles highlight children's sequential progress across six developmental domains from pre-birth to age 19 using an easy-reference, bulleted format.
