Help students understand how culture impacts development- and why it matters.
Through current research and examples from around the world, Arnett/Maynard’s Child Development provides students with a more accurate and practical understanding of how development works in the real world. Whether they travel the globe or remain in their home towns, in a culturally diverse and globalized world students will benefit from being able to think culturally about human development. New U.S. and international videos, shot in several countries, allow students to observe similarities and differences in human development across cultures.
