Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • The most comprehensive, original, and researched-based text in the child socialization market, this book offers thorough coverage that examines all influences on children's socialization, including parenting, family, school, community, the media, peer groups, teachers, and non-parental child care.
  • This popular, proven text uses Urie Bronfenbrenner's Bioecological Model of Human Development as a framework to illustrate and examine how school, family, peers, and community influence children's socialization. The model is introduced in Chapter 1 and integrated throughout subsequent chapters.
  • Excellent graphics include the Bronfenbrenner concentric circle model highlighted according to relevant chapter topics.
  • Featured in every chapter, Socialization Sketches spotlight popular icons who have socialization histories relevant to the chapter focus and topics. The author examines the socialization histories of John F. Kennedy, Yo-Yo Ma, Oprah Winfrey, Carlos Santana, and others. These popular features engage readers with stories of real people.
  • Chapter 9, "Ecology of the Mass Media," offers an accurate and timely reflection of ongoing technology as it relates to children and socialization.
  • Illustrating concepts in action, In Practice boxes show teachers and child care workers how to infuse their practice with the concepts and theories being discussed as well as how these concepts play out in the real world. Other boxed content presents examples related to chapter content, offering additional real-world insight.
  • Learning Objectives precede chapter content, helping readers focus on upcoming concepts.
  • The vibrant four-color design enlivens content and engages readers.

What's New

  • References and research citations are updated throughout the book.
  • New and expanded material includes (among other topics) updated coverage of diversity in all of its forms; students with disabilities and special needs; obesity, nutrition, wellness, and efforts to help children stay healthy; bullying, school violence, and gangs; and service learning, volunteering, and community involvement.
  • Information on technology and the impact of media, particularly in Chapter 9, includes new and updated discussions and examples of social networking, texting/sexting, blogging, video games, and the effects of new technologies on children and learning.
  • A new video feature introduces videos--available at the book's website, Education CourseMate--that allow students to see the text content come to life in real classroom settings.
  • NAEYC and DAP standards receive greater emphasis, including a convenient chart on the book's inside front cover that correlates NAEYC standards to text content. A more detailed correlation is available at the book's website, Education CourseMate.
  • New and updated coverage of standards also includes discussions of No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, and the impact of standardized testing.
  • New In Context boxes (based on the previous edition's boxed examples and vignettes) give greater prominence to important examples, and complement the existing In Practice feature.
  • Socialization Sketches of such popular icons as John F. Kennedy, Yo-Yo Ma, and Oprah Winfrey now appear at the beginning of the chapter and are enhanced by new critical thinking questions.
  • Chapter-opening Learning Objectives are aligned more closely with the chapter's main heads to keep students on track as they read. Elimination of the chapter-opening Prologue folktale allows readers to get to the heart of chapter content more quickly.
  • An improved chapter organization features three new Part Openers that provide a clear roadmap of the flow of chapters, making the book easier to use.
  • Long passages of running text have been turned into charts, tables, graphics, and bulleted lists, making the material more readable and appealing for visual learners; other content has been streamlined where possible.
