Life Span Development: A Topical Approach addresses two main concerns of instructors that came out of extensive market research: First, almost every instructor acknowledged that the breadth of lifespan development is so vast that it is difficult to cover the entire field within the confines of a traditional college. Second, many instructors expressed the concern that traditional, chronologically-based lifespan development books were arranged in a way that made it difficult for students to understand the scope of development within particular topical areas. This book, which is based on the chronologically-organized, highly popular Development Across the Life Span, will be approximately 20 percent shorter than traditional lifespan books and topically organized. Life Span Development: A Topical Approach maintains the student friendliness that has been the hallmark of the original. It is rich in examples and illustrates the applications that can be derived from the research and theory of lifespan developmentalists. It pays particular attention to the applications that can be drawn from theory and research in the field. To optimize student learning and to provide instructors with maximum flexibility, the book uses a modular approach. Each chapter will be divided into three modules focusing on particular subtopics. Consequently, rather than facing long, potentially daunting chapters, students will encounter material that is divided into smaller, more manageable chunks. Presenting material in small chunks represents a structure that research long ago found to be optimum for promoting learning. The modular approach has another advantage: It allows instructors to customize instruction by assigning only those modules that fit their course.
