Raposa, Elizabeth B.; Hurd, Noelle M. – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
Naturally-occurring mentoring relationships with caring, nonparental adults can provide critical support to underrepresented students during the transition to college. The current study sought to examine the nature of underrepresented students' relationships with natural mentors during their first three semesters in college. Results revealed that…

Snyder, Kate E.; Carrig, Madeline M.; Linnenbrink-Garcia, Lisa – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
Insufficient research attention has been focused on the development of academic "under"-achievement and motivational beliefs. A longitudinal, person-centered approach was used to identify latent subgroups of growth in the joint development of teacher-reported underachievement and four motivational beliefs (self-concept, task importance,…

Yu, Mark Vincent B.; Deutsch, Nancy L. – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
Through the provision of different types of social support, significant nonparental youth--adult relationships can facilitate youth's positive development across adolescence. However, despite the potential benefits of these relationships, there has been little consideration of how the relational process may vary across different adolescent stages.…

Griffith, Aisha N.; Melton, Theresa N.; Deutsch, Nancy L. – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
Group mentoring programs offer multiple routes for influencing development, through both one-on-one relationships and relational processes in the group context. Less explored is how the group context impacts one-on-one relationships. This study investigated how the group influences the development of the mentor-mentee relationship in a group and…

Rucinski, Christina L.; Sutton, Essie; Carlton, Richmond; Downer, Jason; Brown, Joshua L. – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
Research has shown that racial/ethnic diversity in elementary schools and classrooms benefits children's academic achievement and feelings of safety and belonging. The current study aimed to expand on existing research by examining associations between classroom racial/ethnic composition and upper elementary children's social-emotional development…

Ma, Ting-Lan; Simpkins, Sandra; Puente, Kayla – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
This cross-sectional study examined why Latinx adolescents participated in organized activities in comparison to White adolescents. This study, utilizing phone interviews for surveying, included 236 participants (53% female) of Latinx (64%) and White (36%) descent from four Southwest middle schools to answer these overarching questions: (1) What…

Anyiwo, Nkemka; Richards-Schuster, Katie; Jerald, Morgan C. – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
This paper examines the utility of youth participatory action research (YPAR) and critical media literacy as strategies to promote the sociopolitical development (SPD) of Black youth. We use the case example of Our Voices, an afterschool program implemented with Black high school students in which participants analyzed the representation of Black…

Clark, Shelby; Harbaugh, Allen G.; Seider, Scott – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
Research has found that directly teaching students to question positively affects academic outcomes. Although theoretically questioning is believed to foster numerous "noncognitive" outcomes, relatively few studies have considered the impact of direct instruction in questioning on students' curiosity and related motivational constructs.…

Christensen, Kirsten M.; Raposa, Elizabeth B.; Hagler, Matthew A.; Erickson, Lance; Rhodes, Jean E. – Applied Developmental Science, 2021
Organized sports are among the most common youth activities in the United States, and athletic coaches can often become important mentors to their players. Nonetheless, few studies have examined the characteristics of youth who form mentoring relationships with coaches and whether such relationships are associated with later academic outcomes.…

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…
