Factors That Affect Learning among Minority Youth: A Partial Bibliography.
Vasquez, James A.
Intended to assist interested persons to identify research on minority youth in various areas believed to shape the manner in which these students learn, this bibliography cites approximately 1,273 materials, published primarily between 1950 and 1979, basically dealing with Black, Hispanic (especially Mexican American), and Native American youth, although some references point the user to studies conducted among Asian American students. While the greater part of the entries refers to studies on minority youth, some references have been included because of their generic contribution to the field. Entries, listed alphabetically by author, are divided into 10 topical categories: values and cultural distinctives (192 entries); family and socialization practices (154 entries); self-concept (277 entries); motivational factors (135 entries); cooperation and competition as achievement models (71 entries); sex role expectations (86 entries); role models (20 entries); peer influence and reinforcement (42 entries); teacher/student expectations and performance (176 entries); and instructional strategies (120 entries).
