Features/Benefits

  • New-generation design The hallmark of HDEV is a contemporary magazine-style design perfect for visual learners. Photos and graphics bring the material to life, and headers help readers quickly identify key concepts and their relationships. A broad array of highly effective, student- and faculty-tested teaching and learning tools accompanies the book.
  • Spencer Rathus provides concise coverage of human development. Streamlined chapters, with an average length of just 17-20 pages, make it easy for students to break reading into manageable sections.
  • Focused, efficient pedagogy Truth or Fiction statements at the beginning of each chapter entice and encourage students to delve into the chapter content by challenging folklore and common sense beliefs. Truth or Fiction Revisited sections close the loop on the issues raised. Learning Objectives in each chapter opener focus study and keep students on track. Occasional, brief feature boxes present high interest applied topics. Other than this targeted pedagogy, the book is free of clutter that can distract students.
  • Innovative study tools Each chapter includes a detachable card for convenient, quick review and class preparation. Student cards contain all pertinent review information, including key terms, definitions, learning objectives, and section summaries. Instructor cards feature chapter outlines, topics and terms covered, lecture topics, student projects, and classroom demonstrations.
