Role of Culture
Your final paper should focus on the role of culture in one of the areas of child development that is being covered in this course (e.g., attachment, peer relationships, parenting) during one developmental period (e.g., infancy/toddlerhood, preschool- age, or middle childhood)
You need to examine an area of development in two different cultures and discuss the similarities and differences in these two cultures (i.e., what may be universal and cultural-specific aspects of development). You need to focus on this area of development in one developmental period (e.g., infancy/toddlerhood, preschool-age, or middle childhood).
You need to justify why this area of development and this developmental stage are important and why cultural variations might be found and important to understand.
Please be specific and clear about what cultural groups you are comparing and what developmental stage you are studying in your final paper.
It is not sufficient to say ‘cross-cultural studies on XX will help us understand how different cultural beliefs impact children’s adjustment’.
In your final paper, you need to explain what is the cultural theory that leads you to propose cultural differences in this area of development between the two cultural groups you are comparing and what are some cultural factors that might lead to differences between the two groups that warrant a cultural comparison.
You should find studies in which the authors specifically focused on comparing the two cultural groups on the same area of development during the developmental stage that you propose to study. Another approach is to find studies that cover one of your cultures and then conduct your own comparison based on your reading and review of the topic across the two cultures you selected.
Some of you have selected some good literature review articles and books. Although these articles will be helpful to you in setting the background in writing the paper, it does NOT count towards one of your two required empirical research articles because the authors did not collect original data (there needs to be a sample of participants or statistical analyses conducted; meta-analytic studies are acceptable because they treat each study like it is a sample and conducts statistical analyses on each study as a group).
