Tomlinson-Keasey und K. Developmental Questions Continuity vs. Discontinuity Think about how children become adults. Is there a predictable pattern they follow regarding thought and language and social development?
Do children go through gradual changes or are they abrupt changes? Normative development is typically viewed as a continual and cumulative process. The continuity view says that change is gradual.
Children become more skillful in thinking, talking or acting much the same way as they get taller. The discontinuity view sees development as more abrupt-a succession of changes that produce different behaviors in different age-specific life periods called stages. Biological changes provide the potential for these changes. These are called developmental stages-periods of life initiated by distinct transitions in physical or psychological functioning.
Psychologists of the discontinuity view believe that people go through the same stages, in the same order, but not necessarily at the same rate.
Nature vs. Nurture When trying to explain development, it is important to consider the relative contribution of both nature and nurture.
Developmental psychology seeks to answer two big questions about heredity and environment: How much weight does each contribute? How do nature and nurture interact? Nature refers to the process of biological maturation inheritance and maturation.
One of the reasons why the development of human beings is so similar is because our common specifies heredity DNA guides all of us through many of the same developmental changes at about the same points in our lives.
Nurture refers to the impact of the environment, which involves the process of learning through experiences. Accuracy rating: 4 To the best of my knowledge, the information presented within the textbook is accurate. The one area for improvement in relational to accuracy would be the updating some of the sections to use more inclusive terminology e. I did come across one or two content areas that should have been updated for the latest edition e.
Clarity The textbook is written at a level that lower-level undergraduate students can understand. Consistency Terminology and framework is consistent throughout textbook. Modularity rating: 5 The text is divided into 10 chapters.
