About

Overview

MindTap™ Education for Miller's Positive Child Guidance, 8th Edition is the digital learning solution that helps instructors engage and transform today's students into critical thinkers. Through paths of dynamic assignments and applications that you can personalize, real-time course analytics, and an accessible reader, MindTap helps you turn cookie cutter into cutting edge, apathy into engagement, and memorizers into higher-level thinkers. MindTap will guide students to: know, remember, and understand concepts critical to becoming a great teacher; apply concepts, create tools, and demonstrate performance and competency in key areas in the course; prepare artifacts for their portfolio and eventual state licensure as they get ready to launch a successful teaching career; and develop the habits to become a reflective practitioner. As students move through each chapter’s learning path, they engage in a scaffolded learning experience designed to move them up Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy from lower- to higher-order thinking skills. Access to this product is valid for 6 months of usage.
