Master teacher and author John Santrock’s Essentials of Life-Span Development (4th Edition) connects psychology students to current research and real-world application, helping college students see how developmental psychology plays a role in their own lives and future careers and jobs. Through an integrated, personalized digital learning program, psychology students gain the insight they need to study much smarter and improve their performance.
Connecting research and results.
Essentials of Life-Span Development 4e was developed to help meet the ever-changing needs of college students in the lifespan course. Research shows that psychology students today learn in multiple modalities. Not only do their work preferences tend to be more interactive and more visual, but their reading and study sessions often occur in short bursts. With shorter chapters and the LearnSmart interactive study modules in Connect Lifespan (sold separately), Essentials of Life-Span Development allows students to study however, whenever, and wherever they choose.
