The authors of “Child Development: An Active Learning Approach,” Laura E. Levine and Joyce A. Munsch, invite students to take an active journey toward understanding the most recent findings from the field of child development in the third edition of their book, which is organized topically and is titled “Child Development: An Active Learning Approach.” Students are challenged to confront myths and misconceptions, participate in real-world activities with children and independently, and utilize video resources and research tools to pursue knowledge and develop critical thinking skills on their own. These robust pedagogical tools are built into the chapter narratives. Students are given the opportunity to participate in real-world activities with children. The most recent research on issues such as positive youth development, the role of fathers, and more are presented in this updated edition, and discussions on diversity and culture are woven throughout. This one-of-a-kind resource is more than just a textbook because it will continue to be useful to students even after they have moved on to pursue graduate education, found employment working with children and adolescents, or begun raising their own families' children.
