Teresa M. McDevitt and Jeanne Ormrod offer the only comprehensive development text written specifically for educators in their book Child Development and Education (4th Edition), ISBN 9780137133833. The most relatable coverage of development theory and research are presented in this book with a variety of applications for educators to put to use in their own classrooms. This text offers a concrete look at the foundational concepts of development through the lens of children from diverse families including those from varying cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. This is accomplished through the inclusion of cases studies, journal artifacts, sketchbooks, schoolwork, as well as digital video footage. A myriad of effective features and teaching methods are incorporated to effectively present students with material including the 'Development and Practice' features which offer developmentally appropriate concrete strategies for facilitating student development and learning and the 'Observation Guidelines' which help students learn to observe developmental nuances in children and adolescents. Other effective features of this text are that of the 'Applying Concepts in Child Development' sections at the end of each chapter providing scenarios connected to developmental concepts and allowing students to practice applying their knowledge of development, chapter-beginning case studies and vignettes incorporated throughout each chapter, as well as the 'Interpreting Children's Artifacts and Reflections' features that provide practice in evaluating student work and applying new knowledge authentically. Teresa M. McDevitt and Jeanne Ormrod incorporate the use of four sections and 15 chapters to present the information of Child Development and Education (4th Edition). Sections focus on the foundations of child development, biological development, cognitive development, and finally, social and emotional development.
