Description

Help students understand how culture impacts development- and why it matters. It is more important than ever for students to have knowledge of the wider world. Through current research and examples from around the world, Arnett's Human Development teaches students to think culturally about their own development and see how it applies to their own lives and future careers. Whether they travel the globe or remain in their home towns, in a culturally diverse and globalized world, students will benefit from being able to think culturally about human development. New U.S. and international videos, shot in several countries, allow students to observe similarities and differences in human development across cultures. Teaching & Learning Experience *Personalize Learning - The new MyDevelopmentLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals. *Engage Students - Arnett's personal anecdotes, career and real world applications, cross-cultural examples, and in-text video scans help to engage students. *Improve Critical Thinking - Students learn to think critically about the influence of culture on development. Learning objectives help students organize and understand the material covered within each section. *Explore Research - "Research Focus" provides students with a firm grasp of various research methods and helps them see the impact that methods can have on research findings. *Understand Culture and Diversity - By taking a cultural approach to human development, Arnett includes culture on every page and integrates culture throughout the narrative. *Support Instructors - The Arnett supplements were written and tested by a dedicated team of instructors who teach the lifespan development course and believe in the importance of taking a cultural approach to human development.
