Overview

MindTap™ Psychology for Kail/Cavanaugh's Human Development, 7th Edition is a personalized teaching experience with relevant assignments that guide students to analyze, apply, and improve thinking, allowing you to measure skills and outcomes with ease. Personalized teaching becomes yours through a Learning Path built with key student objectives and your syllabus in mind. Control what students see and when they see it. Relevant readings, multimedia, and activities are designed to take students up the levels of learning, from basic knowledge to analysis and application. Analytics and reports provide a snapshot of class progress, time in course, engagement and completion rates. In addition to the benefits of the platform, MindTap for Human Development: A Life-Span View includes interactive activities drawn from the "What Do You Think?" and "Real People" text features that foster student participation through polls, photo shares, and discussion threads; as well as illustrative video embedded in the MindTap Reader to highlight key concepts. "Investigate Development" activities enable students to think critically about research and see the implications of research on a personal level. Students interact with simulated case studies of milestones in a person's development, observing and analyzing audio-visual cues, consulting research, and making decisions.

  • Control what content students see and when they see it with a learning path that can be used as-is or matched to your syllabus exactly.
  • Investigate Development enables students to observe, evaluate, and make de-cisions about human development so they see the implications of research on a personal level. Students interact with simulated case studies of milestones in a person’s development, observing and analyzing audio-visual cues, consulting research, and making decisions. Instead of rote memorization of isolated concepts, Investigate Development compels students to think critically about research and brings human development to life.
