Connect with Lifespan Development and connect with success
Informed and driven by research. At McGraw-Hill, we have spent thousands of hours with you and your students, working to understand the key needs and concerns you face in Human Development courses. The most common topics raised include managing the vast amount of content inherent to a Lifespan course and ensuring the dependability of the assigned materialâis it current and accurate? The result of this research is John Santrockâs Life-Span Development.
Life-Span Development ensures students complete and understand the assigned material in a number of ways: Santrockâs hallmark Learning Goals pedagogy provides a comprehensive roadmap to the text material, clearly pointing out the core concepts fundamental to studentsâ learning and performance. Our adaptive study tool, LearnSmart, increases studentsâ efficiency in studying by identifying what they know, and more importantly what they donât know, providing immediate remediation for the areas in which they are struggling. At the same time, instructors have access to powerful, visual reports allowing them to quickly see where studentsâ strengths and weaknesses lie. 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.
The 14th edition continues with the connections theme to help students better understand the concepts among the different aspects of life-span development. This recurring theme of connectionsâDevelopmental Connections, Topical Connections, Connecting Development to Life, Connecting with Careers, and Connections through Researchâties together concepts from across chapters to reinforce the learning process and connects the material to studentsâ everyday lives and future aspirations. Our Milestones of Development video series helps bring the course material to life, allowing students to witness development as it unfolds. And of course, all of the text material is informed by Life-Span Developmentâs unique board of expert consultantsâa whoâs who of developmental psychologyâwho make sure the material is as accurate and up-to-date as possible.
