An integral part of The Developing Child video modules from the same producer, this workbook provides a very useful clearly formatted modular presentation, 30 modules in all, of information on all areas of child development. The workbook can be used with the videos, without them as a stand alone tutorial or review source, or as the outline for a more encompassing course in the area of child development. The 30 modules constitute a survey of current child development, covering theory, history and trends, methods, bioscience background, fetal through adolescent development, and a variety of related topics. Each module includes five sections: overview, key questions to consider, vocabulary, instructional objectives, and self test. The 30 modules are: (1) Observation; (2) Study of the Child: History and Trends; (3) Theories of Development; (4) Context of Development; (5) Conception and Heredity; (6) Prenatal Development; (7) Understanding Pregnancy; (8) The Neonate; (9) Infancy: Landmarks of Development; (10) Infancy: Beginnings in Cognition and Language; (11) Infancy: Early Relationships; (12) Infancy: Self and Social World; (13) Early Child Care and Education; (14) The Child in the Family; (15) Nutrition; (16) Exceptional Children; (17) Toddlerhood: Physical and Cognitive Development; (18) Toddlerhood: Emotional Development; (19) Preschoolers: Physical and Cognitive Development; (20) Preschoolers: Social and Emotional Development; (21) Play; (22) Language Development; (23) Self-Identity and Sex Role Development; (24) Moral Development; (25) Middle Childhood Growth and Development; (26) Middle Childhood: Society of Children; (27) Middle Childhood: Sense of Industry; (28) Adolescence: Physical Growth and Development; (29) Adolescence: Cognitive and Moral Development; and (30) Adolescence: Social and Emotional Development.
