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…

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…

McQuillin, Samuel D.; Lyons, Michael D.; Clayton, Rebecca J.; Anderson, Jacqueline R. – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
Like many youth development programs, most youth mentoring programs do not have prescribed practices that target specific outcomes. Because the construct of mentoring represents a broad range of potential activities, researchers face a conundrum when making generalizable causal inferences about the effects of this and similar services. On the one…

Meng, Christine – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
This study used the FACES 2009 cohort to examine the effect of classroom language diversity on the social-emotional development (defined as social skills, approaches to learning, and behavior problems) of the ELL and non-ELL children. A three-level hierarchical linear modeling in which time was nested within the child and the child was nested…

Bornstein, Marc H.; Putnick, Diane L.; Costlow, Kyrsten M.; Suwalsky, Joan T. D. – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
Retrospective parental reports are common in the developmental science literature, but their validity has been questioned. We investigated the consistency of retrospective maternal recall by comparing original with retrospective maternal reports in three domains (maternal cognitions, mother-reported child and mother behaviors, and observed child…

Barbarin, Oscar A.; Tolan, Patrick H.; Gaylord-Harden, Noni; Murry, Velma – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
A social justice analysis of the circumstances of African-American boys and young men (AAB) reveals a pervasive pattern of negative stereotypes, disparate treatment, and resource deprivation that augur poorly for their development. Developmental science has yielded many insights about the deleterious sequelae of racism and economic disadvantage,…

Smith, Chauncey D.; Smith Lee, Jocelyn R. – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
This commentary engages the three elements of a social justice framework in the study of African American Boys and Men's (AABM) positive development, proposed by Barbarin, Tolan, and Gaylord-Harden (2019). In agreement with the importance of and in support of employing a social justice framework in developmental science, we offer theoretical and…

Barker, Sandra B.; Schubert, Christine M.; Barker, Randolph T.; Kuo, Sally I-Chun; Kendler, Kenneth S.; Dick, Danielle M. – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
Internalizing symptoms are prevalent in students as they enter and complete college. Considering research suggesting mental health benefits of pet ownership, this study explores the relationship between pet ownership, social support (SS), and internalizing symptoms (IS) in a cohort of students across their 4-year college experience. With no…

Newman, Tarkington J.; Anderson-Butcher, Dawn; Amorose, Anthony J. – Applied Developmental Science, 2020
Youth participation in sport is associated with positive developmental outcomes. The development of life skills is especially important for urban youth of color who are often underserved and face poor long-term outcomes. To service the needs of underserved youth, community youth sport programs have begun to utilize sport-based positive youth…

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…
