Child and adolescent development for educators

Research output: Book/ReportTextbook/Reference bookpeer-review


Child and Adolescent Development for Educators covers development from early childhood through high school. This text provides authentic, research-based strategies and guidelines for the classroom, helping future teachers to create an environment that promotes optimal development in children. The authors apply child development concepts to topics of high interest and relevance to teachers, including classroom behaviour management, constructivism, social-emotional development, and many others. The text combines core theory with practical implications for educational contexts, and shows how child development links to the Australian Professional Standards for Graduate Teachers. Case studies and real-world vignettes illustrate concepts, while research, including the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children, and Longitudinal Study of Indigenous children, bridges the distance between research and the classroom.
