Description

Helps students understand how culture impacts development in adolescence and emerging adulthood.  

 

Grounded in a global cultural perspective (within and outside of the US), this text enriches the discussion with historical context and an interdisciplinary approach, including studies from fields such as anthropology and sociology, in addition to the compelling psychological research on adolescent development. This book also takes into account the period of “emerging adulthood” (ages 18-25), a term coined by the author, and an area of study for which Arnett is a leading expert.

 

Arnett continues the fifth edition with new and updated studies, both U.S. and international.  MyDevelopmentLab is an integral part of the Arnett program. Key learning applications include a personalized study plan, MyDevelopmentLab Video Series, and MyVirtualTeen.

 

 

A better teaching and learning experience

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience– for you and your students. Here’s how:

  • Personalize Learning – MyDevelopmentLab is online learning. MyDevelopmentLab engages students through personalized learning and helps instructors from course preparation to delivery and assessment.

  • Improve Critical Thinking - Students learn to think critically about the influence of culture on development with pedagogical features such as Culture Focus boxes and Historical Focus boxes.
  • Engage Students — Arnett engages students with cross cultural research and examples throughout. MyVirtualTeen, an interactive simulation, allows students to apply the concepts they are learning to their own "virtual teen."
  • Explore Research — “Research Focus” provides students with a firm grasp of various research methods and helps them see the impact that methods can have on research findings.
  • Support Instructors — This program provides instructors with unbeatable resources, including video embedded PowerPoints and the new MyDevelopmentLab that includes cross-cultural videos and MyVirtualTeen, an interactive simulation that allows you to raise a child from birth to age 18. An easy to use Instructor’s Manual, a robust test bank, and an online test generator (MyTest) are also available.

Features

FOCUSED ON A GLOBAL CULTURAL PERSPECTIVE THAT INCORPORATES RESEARCH ON ADOLESCENCE THROUGH EMERGING ADULTHOOD.

 

  • Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood employs a cultural approach that informs students about what life is like for young people in cultures from around the world, thus broadening their understanding of the diversity of human development. This text strives to have students not only think critically but to learn to think culturally about the studies they examine.
  • With an emphasis on adolescence and emerging adulthood from varying cultures and a global view, students are encouraged to think outside of their own experiences. This also encourages critical thinking as students explore the similarities and differences of world around us.
