Osher, David; Cantor, Pamela; Berg, Juliette; Steyer, Lily; Rose, Todd – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
This article synthesizes knowledge on the role of relationships and key macro- and micro-contexts -- poverty, racism, families, communities, schools, and peers - in supporting and/or undermining the healthy development of children and youth, using a relational developmental systems framework. Relationships with parents, siblings, peers,…

Shonkoff, Jack P. – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
The rapidly moving frontiers of neuroscience, molecular biology, and epigenetics--combined with extensive research in the behavioral and social sciences--are dramatically expanding our understanding of how children develop, how that process can be disrupted, how to get it back on track when it does get derailed, and how to keep it from going off…

Pellegrino, James W. – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
This commentary extends and amplifies aspects of the Cantor, Osher, Berg, Steyer and Rose (2018) discussion about what we know about the nature of learning and its implications for how we educate students across the span from early childhood through advanced levels of formal education. The paper's overall goal is to offer some guidance and…

Yang, Chia-chen; Lee, Yen – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
Research shows use of social media (SM) has important implications for college adjustment. However, most studies only focused on Facebook and did not attend to specific use patterns. Drawing on the activity-audience framework of social media use and literature of college adjustment, we examined the associations between use of Facebook, Instagram,…

Díaz McConnell, Eileen; White, Rebecca M. B.; Ettekal, Andrea Vest – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
Although organized activities promote positive youth development, Latina/os are least likely to participate among ethnic minority youth. This study tested whether an indicator of social stratification, namely mothers' documentation status (i.e., nativity, citizenship, and legal status), explained low activity participation rates among Mexican and…

Kagitcibasi, Cigdem; Baydar, Nazli; Cemalcilar, Zeynep – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
We present a youth development intervention program and its evaluation. Deriving from the theories of agentic self and positive youth development, we adopted a holistic perspective that focused on social agency with growth mindset and self-efficacy conceptualized as its motivators. The intervention consisted of 14 weekly sessions with 508 sixth…

Darling-Hammond, Linda; Flook, Lisa; Cook-Harvey, Channa; Barron, Brigid; Osher, David – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
This article draws out the implications for school and classroom practices of an emerging consensus about the science of learning and development, outlined in a recent synthesis of the research. Situating the review in a developmental systems framework, we synthesize evidence from the learning sciences and several branches of educational research…

Šerek, Jan; Machackova, Hana – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
This study examined the effects of school climate (open classroom and positive student relationships) and personality dispositions (shyness and need for cognition) on adolescents' political self-efficacy. Data were collected in 2014 from 1,954 Czech ninth- and tenth-graders (mean age = 15.60). A multilevel analysis showed that school-level…

Justice, Laura M.; Logan, Jessica A.; Purtell, Kelly; Bleses, Dorthe; Højen, Anders – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
As early childhood education programming expands across the globe, there is an increased need to understand how features of these programs influence children's development. The composition of children's age within a classroom is one such feature, although it is much less studied than other features. Theoretical and empirical evidence suggests that…

Price, C. Aaron; Kares, F.; Segovia, G.; Loyd, Aerika Brittian – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
We explore the understudied role of program staff in an out-of-school time (OST) program at a large science museum, which may be especially relevant for supporting underrepresented minority (URM) youth's interest in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) careers. Using a sequential explanatory mixed-method design, we surveyed 167 program…

Gagné, Monique H.; Schonert-Reichl, Kimberly; Costigan, Catherine; Guhn, Martin; Shapka, Jennifer D. – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
The study looked at the stratified math and language arts trajectories of foreign-born adolescents (aged 14-19) in British Columbia (BC), Canada, and identified social position factors that predicted this variation. Leveraging data from the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the study looked…

Ansari, Arya; Pianta, Robert C. – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
Data from 332 teachers who participated in the National Center for Research on Early Childhood Education study were used to examine the implications of classroom age diversity in preschool programs for teacher interactions with students in areas of instructional and emotional support, and classroom organization. Teachers in early childhood…

Cantor, Pamela; Osher, David; Berg, Juliette; Steyer, Lily; Rose, Todd – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
This article synthesizes foundational knowledge from multiple scientific disciplines regarding how humans develop in context. Major constructs that define human development are integrated into a developmental system framework, this includes--epigenetics, neural malleability and plasticity, integrated complex skill development and learning, human…

Goble, Priscilla; Pianta, Robert C.; Sabol, Terri J. – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
A person-oriented approach examined the extent to which patterns of school readiness across social and cognitive domains in 944 typically-developing 54-month-old children forecast academic achievement, social-emotional development, risk taking, and executive functioning at age 15. Prior work identified six distinct profiles of school readiness at…

Vézina, Marie-Pier; Poulin, François – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
Current knowledge of intraindividual longitudinal patterns of civic participation (CP) and their predictors remains limited. As life cycle trends are showing a decline in civic/political involvement during early adulthood years, increased understanding of these aspects could enhance efforts to promote greater and/or sustained CP trajectories among…
