With Macmillan’s superior content delivered by LaunchPad (comprehensive course) 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. LaunchPad 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. 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.
