The impact of book reading on children’s attitudes toward Syrian refugees and local U.S. families

Summers, N.M., Kuebli, J.E., Mii, A., Yong, N., & Yasin, F. (2015, July)
Conference PaperPaper will be presented at the Regional Conference of the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, México | Nicole Summers, Symposium Chair

Abstract

Book reading has been used as an intervention strategy to change negative outgroup attitudes and behavior (Cameron, Rutland, Brown, & Douch, 2006; Cameron & Rutland, 2006). While previous studies have created stories about intergroup friendships in order to do so, evoking sympathy may also have an impact because it motivates individuals to take actions that improve others’ situations. The current study created two illustrated stories about an out-group and in-group family experiencing difficult circumstances. Children (n = 62, 42 girls) in the first and second grade were read one of two stories. Results suggest there was a significant improvement from pre- to post-test in both in-group and out-group attitudes F(1,59) =9.67, p =.003, ηp2 = .14, but not helping behavior. These results suggest that after being taught about the plight of those in need children are more likely to feel positively toward those in need and treat them as equals.

The prevalence of cultural studies in U.S. state colleges and universities.

Conference PaperPaper presented at the 22nd International Congress of the International Association for Cross-Cultural Psychology, Reims, France

Putting culture on the table: An examination of the Unites States' contribution to cultural research.

Summers, N.M. & Poelker, K. (2015, February).
Conference PaperPaper presented at the 43rd Annual Society for Cross-Cultural Research, Albuquerque, NM.

Abstract

Previous research indicated that APA journals focused on less than 5% of the world’s population (Arnett, 2008). Although most research emerges at the university level, there are few graduate degrees available in cultural psychology (Lonner, 2011). Potential students must follow the apprenticeship model by identifying faculty specializing in cultural research. Thus far, no one has examined the prevalence of cultural research in psychology departments across the U.S. Faculty profiles from psychology departments in 4-year public universities and colleges across the 50 United States were analyzed (N = 404). Only those institutions financially supported by the state government were included. All community colleges and specialty universities were excluded. The term “culture” included studies with cross-cultural, cultural, thnic, bicultural, aboriginal, cultural diversity, and multiculturalism components. Psychology department faculty profiles were coded for frequency of cultural research interests, cultures (e.g. Central America) studied, and specialization within psychology (i.e., developmental). Results indicated that less than 15% of U.S. universities and colleges have psychology faculty who specialize in cultural studies. Moreover, cultural research is unevenly dispersed across specializations with subfields like neuroscience and industrial/organizational psychology underrepresented. Similarly, particular areas around the world are disproportionally understudied (e.g., Arab States) in comparison to others (e.g., East Asia). These results indicate a need to foster cultural research in U.S. universities to create more opportunities for students.

Taufel or kitab: Kuwaiti adolescents' drawings of adults as a parent or educator.

Summers, N.M., Baban, S., Milad., E., Gibbons, J., Ahmed, R.. (2014, February).
Conference PaperD. L. Best and H. Ganapathy-Coleman (Chairs) Children’s Learning Environments. Symposium conducted at the 43rd Annual Society for Cross-Cultural Research, Albuquerque, NM.

Abstract

Since drawings of the ideal person can reveal adolescents’ cultural attitudes and beliefs (Gibbons & Stiles, 2004), we used the drawings of Kuwaiti adolescents to examine qualities associated with the ideal adult depicted as a parent or educator. Nine-hundred and ninety-one Kuwaiti adolescents (ages 11-22) completed questionnaires in which they drew pictures and rated the importance of 10 qualities of the ideal man and the ideal woman. Based on a similar study among Egyptian adolescents, we predicted that Kuwaiti adolescents who drew the ideal as a teacher would be more likely to draw the person in Western clothes, whereas drawings of the ideal person as parents or homemakers would be smiling, helpful, and dressed more traditionally.

Results suggested that fathers were depicted as mature but not helpful, wealthy, and educated. Mothers were also depicted as mature and engaged in homemaking tasks but they were also not helpful, wealthy, or educated. Fathers were more often drawn in traditional dress (e.g., dishdasha) while mothers were depicted in more modern clothing. Adolescents often drew the ideal man or woman as a teacher if their parent was not a teacher.

Although the findings differed from those of Egyptian adolescents, they suggest that Kuwaiti adolescents’ may have more diverse conceptions about family life. Moreover, similar to the Egyptian adolescents, choosing to become a teacher in Kuwait may involve pursing a different life from that of one’s parents.

Example Course Materials

Cross-Cultural Human Development - Syllabus


Course Description

The United States comprises of 5% of the world’s population, yet the majority of psychological studies examine only Western Educated Industrialized Rich Democratic (WEIRD) societies. This course explores the cultural aspects of psychology on the “neglected” 95% (Arnett, 2008). Culture is a broad term which encompasses race, ethnicity, nationality, language, and group membership. Cultural research permeates in all fields of psychology including social, cognition, industrial/organizational, and neuroscience. This course will provide a conceptual foundation for the understanding of psychology and culture, with a focus on youth development. In addition to providing a conceptual framework on cultural psychology, this course aims to extend on social and developmental psychology while also introducing students to cross-cultural research methodologies.




Cross-Cultural Human Development - Group Assignment : Research Proposal

The objective here is to understand that research cannot be replicated without understanding the cultural norms and appropriate levels of measurement for that culture. You will understand the issues behind replicating experiments and interventions in other cultures.




Cross-Cultural Human Development - Learning Technologies : Identification Differences across Cultures

The objective is to understand how social media conveys cross-cultural differences. The goals are that you will understand the differences in defining identify across cultures; be able to compare and contrast individualism and collectivism, and evaluate how statuses reveal identity.




Cross-Cultural Human Development - Final Assignment : Aging

The goals are to understand that research on human development extends past childhood and adolescence. Our objectives are that you will understnad issues about aging around the world and that you will gain experience verbally summarizing research.

Feedback and Reflections

Mentor Feedback Forms




My teaching mentor, Dr. Mindy Shoss, evaluated one of my guest lectures.




Dr. Shoss provided a letter outlining her recommendations for me in regards to the Certificate program.




Reflections : Learning Technologies


Excerpt

I believe that a teacher must have an appreciation of individual differences within a classroom and create an active and accommodating learning environment that reaches all types of learners through a combination of lectures, group discussions, projects, and utilizing learning technologies. For instance, using Facebook and Twitter has been shown to Reinforce Classroom Concepts (Blessing, Blessing, Bethany, & Fleck, 2012). In addition, using clickers could be an informal check for understanding (Wiggins & McTighe, 2005) and encourage non-talkative students to have a voice in the classroom (Troy, Elizabeth, & Kaelin, 2009). These avenues allow each student the best opportunity to contribute to the learning community.




Reflections : Teaching Video Recording


Excerpt

In Fall 2014 I received the opportunity to give my first guest lecture in a Child Development course. Although I had served as a teaching assistant prior, this was the first instance in which I structured my own curriculum. My topic of choice was cross-cultural parenting. I received feedback from both my mentor and the host professor. According to my mentor, my presentation was well-paced and my voice was well projected. Additionally, my structuring of the lecture nicely integrated previous course content and built upon it with new content. For instance, I created one slide about the previous weeks’ content, parenting styles, asked multiple-choice application-based questions about that content, and then shifted into how parenting styles can be part of parenting practices and ethnotheories. In the future my mentor suggested that I divide the material across more PowerPoint slides and keep them simpler in order to maintain students’ attention and help refocus quicker if they lose concentration. She also suggested that I use more visual cues to help frame the content for students such a making a matrix.




Reflections : Teaching Development


Excerpt

Another rewarding experience was witnessing how a student overcame his Social Anxiety Disorder which previously hindered his proficiency and social interactions. As I stated in my teaching philosophy, I discourage a color blind classroom because ignoring students’ backgrounds overlooks both their needs to strengths. This philosophy not only applies to ethnicity and national original, but also emotional and psychological qualities. This particular student posed a number of challenges. These issues were illuminated in the amount of questions he asked and the repetition he needed for instructions. Due to his high level anxiety that also meant that running an experiment would an overwhelming first step because it involved a high amount of socialization and quick judgment calls. Therefore, I examined his qualities and chose a task which would grant him experience, had low risk, and could be accomplished independently.




At My Office

You can find me at my office in 2403 Morrissey Hall each day until around 5p. I am in and out throughout the day with meetings, studies and other engagements, so it is best to send me an eMail to make an appointment.

On the Road

I travel often, both nationally and internationally, to present at conferences and to attend other events in cross-cultural psychology. Send me an eMail if you see that we will be in the same city, and we can see if a meeting can be arranged.
