Cultural-Familial Predictors of Children's Metacognitive and Academic Performance.
Wang, Alvin Y.
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v7 n2 p83-90 Spr-Sum 1993
Explored the interrelations between cultural-familial factors such as socioeconomic status, ethnicity, family structure, and parental behavior and measures of metacognitive and academic performance in 154 second-grade children. Findings corroborated assertions that theories emphasizing racial differences in cognitive and metacognitive functioning should be recast within a theoretical framework emphasizing the influence of cultural-familial factors.
