Globalization is affecting the identity of adolescents worldwide. Armenia, a country beset by many challenges since 1895, remained isolated after it separated from the Soviet Union in 1991. Widespread poverty limited Armenia's access to technology until recently. This chapter reports the influence of globalization on rural and urban Armenian adolescents' selves and future selves through Internet use. Participants included 92 rural and 80 urban adolescents (Mage = 15.9 years). Using Kağitҫibaşi's (2007) model of family change, we found that rural adolescents, who used the Internet less frequently, identified more closely with traditional cultural attitudes and reflected a family model of interdependence and a heteronomous-related self...

REVIEW
Gail M Ferguson, Radosveta Dimitrova
Remote acculturation (RA) is a modern form of non-migrant acculturation toward distant cultures prompted by indirect/intermittent globalization-related cultural exposure. RA theory holds that not only are global cultures now pouring into local neighborhoods, but many youth are also internalizing these remote cultures. How well do they fare? Prior studies in Jamaica and elsewhere have reported that U.S./Western-oriented adolescents exhibit poorer health habits. However, no studies have yet investigated adolescents' behavioral or academic adjustment in the context of RA, whether in Jamaica or elsewhere...

REVIEW
Jacqueline Nguyen, Gail M Ferguson
Southeast Asian American (SEAA) adolescents and emerging adults navigate a multicultural, global world by utilizing cultural variability to play up and play down three cultural identities: their Asian/Asian American heritage culture, the White dominant culture in which they live, and a hip hop cultural identity. The latter is a unique cultural identity rooted in the global phenomenon of hip hop that includes dance, art, and music as well as resistance to the dominant, mainstream culture. Hip hop is a meaningful cultural identity for SEAA youth because it is a cultural identity transcendent of race/ethnicity, a means toward relational and identity harmony, a form of resistance, and because it facilitates belongingness to a local and a global community...

REVIEW
Adriana M Manago, Patricia Pacheco
The present article examines continuity and change in views on gender in a Maya community before and after a communication tower was installed in 2010. Interview data were collected in 2009 when participants were adolescents (n = 80) and then again in 2015 when they were young adults (n = 68). Values and beliefs for gender were measured using vignettes that were created through previous fieldwork (Manago, 2014). Young adults were also asked about their use of mobile phones and social media, and completed a social network mapping activity (Antonucci, 1986)...

This study examines how two Korean adolescents, born in transnational marriage families, construct their identities in the context of globalization. The data used comes from a yearlong ethnographic research project that includes fieldnotes, interview transcripts, and additional artifacts. The findings reveal that Tayo and Sungho navigate through linguistically, culturally, and discursively hybridized social spaces. Encountering the ideology of a monoethnic, monolingual, and monocultural Korea, they suffer from pervasive social stigmatization of their heterogeneity...

REVIEW
Jessica McKenzie
This article explores how globalization reshapes moral development in northern Thailand. Employing a cultural-developmental approach to examine interview data gathered over the course of one year, the article discusses variations in Divinity-based moral reasoning among adolescents residing in rural and urban Thai communities. Quantitative analyses show that moral reasoning diverges, with rural adolescents reasoning more in terms of the Ethic of Divinity than urban adolescents. Qualitative analyses show how the meaning of Divinity diverges, with the Ethic of Divinity co-occurring alongside the Ethic of Community among rural adolescents, and the Ethic of Divinity co-occurring alongside the Ethic of Autonomy among urban adolescents...

REVIEW
Fons J R van de Vijver
In this commentary on the special issue, it is argued that the studies presented illustrate three pivotal characteristics of a new, evolving paradigm to study the consequences of prolonged intercultural encounters, such as globalization. The first refers to the topics studied and involves the need to delineate more distal, universal, and more proximal, culture-specific elements in intercultural encounters in these topics. The second is the need to deal with variation in intensity and focus of intercultural contact, ranging from casual contact to immersion...

This chapter addresses how child-, family-, and school-level characteristics are associated with Chinese children's academic skill development during their preschool years. Academic skills are defined in terms of young children's emergent competencies in academic domains including literacy, mathematics, and science. First, we review the relations of young Chinese children's cognition (language, visuospatial, and executive functioning), behavior (social behavior and behavioral regulation), and affect (interest and attitude) to their performance in these academic domains...

Ting Wang, Qinmei Xu, Jon-Fan Hu
Learning constitutes a main developmental context for children everywhere. Learning-related emotions can affect cognition, motivation, and achievement and are associated with parenting. Studies on learning-related emotions and how parenting is associated with a child's emotional development in learning have been less conclusive for Chinese children. This article provides an overview of the literature on related emotions as experienced in academic settings in Chinese culture and their relations with parenting...

REVIEW
Nan Li, Sascha Hein
Autonomy (or self-determination) is a crucial construct in understanding adolescents' development and well-being. This paper presents current knowledge about the features of autonomy in learning, parental autonomy support, and psychological control, and their relations with psychological well-being and academic functioning of Chinese adolescents. Cross-sectional and longitudinal evidence supports the generalizability of Self-Determination Theory to Chinese adolescents. Cross-cultural evidence not only highlights similarities regarding the beneficial effects of autonomy in learning and autonomy support, and the detrimental effects of psychological control on well-being, but also demonstrates differences regarding these associations across Western and Chinese cultures...

English language readers rarely get glimpses of the state of autism research in China. Given the seriousness of autism, the population of China, and the potential for theoretically interesting cross-cultural insights, we provide a broad survey of research carried out in China on childhood autism. Four themes are considered: etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and education. Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) appears to be a product of epigenetic interactions between genetic and environmental factors; recent Chinese research on etiology reflects this...

More than 60 million children have been left behind in rural China by parents going to work in cities. Given the effects of child-parent separation (CPS) on development, this phenomenon has drawn considerable governmental and academic attention in recent years. Outlining developments with reference to relevant studies, this review characterizes the perspectives used to explore and understand this phenomenon in terms of three major paradigms: (1) the diagnostic approach, which takes for granted the assumption that CPS would be the only cause of negative effects observed among left-behind children (LBC), and has focused primarily on measuring psychological and behavioral disorders among these "problematic kids"; (2) the advanced diagnostic approach, which refines the previous approach by incorporating theories and techniques developed outside of China, elaborating on the early approach by bringing into consideration more factors and exploring the interactions between CPS and these factors, particularly social ones; (3) the sociologically oriented approach, which provides the research with a much broader framework in terms of how to orient the phenomenon of LBC, especially the transformation of China's social and economic systems during the last 30 years of urbanization, where the reproduction of labor has been based on a "splitting family structure," such that problems associated with the phenomenon of LBC cannot be solved without systematic social and economic changes...

REVIEW
Lin Ye, Alexandria Posada, Yangyang Liu
The objective of the present study was to review the research on the relationship between Chinese adolescents' stress and their academic achievement in the past 20 years. The reviewed studies revealed a generally negative relationship between Chinese adolescents' academic stress and academic achievement; however, other factors, notably, psychological resilience, belief in the value of education, and severity of academic stress moderated the strength of the relationship. In addition, influences such as interpersonal stress and financial stress, on academic achievement were also observed...

REVIEW
Wangchun Cai, Fuxiang Wu
This paper reviews how income inequality at the micro and regional levels influenced the inequality in educational outcomes for children and adolescents in China over the past decades. First, we find that the economic condition of the family influences children's and adolescents' education through home educational resources and parental involvement. Second, income disparity is significantly correlated with the regional differences in educational outcomes. Finally, the differences in the development of child and adolescent education between different regions are mainly due to the uneven distribution of educational resources, which is closely related to the public education financing system and local economic development...

The purpose of this commentary is to discuss the key points addressed in the papers included in the special issue on child and adolescent development in China. The reviews included here suggest that, for the most part, child and adolescent development in China is not significantly different from that reported in Western countries. I further argue that to better understand the role of Chinese culture in academic achievement (this appears to be the major outcome in most studies), we need more cross-cultural studies that contrast the role of multiple factors (e...

Collaborative group work has been recognized as a way of fostering the development of metacognition and self-regulation. Moreover, it has been claimed that these regulatory processes have an interpersonal level in which the regulation of the activity is shared with others (Iiskala et al., 2004). There has also been a considerable body of research on talk within small groups in the classroom. This approach has built a considerable amount of research, given the demonstrated effect of certain types of talk on academic learning...

This paper presents the results of an observational study developed on lessons taught by 128 teachers for a national teaching assessment program in Chile and whose practice was identified as outstanding. Specifically, we studied which strategies teachers used to promote students' self-regulation and autonomy during segments involving teacher-led public talk, student-led public talk, shared engagement, and private work. Additionally, we examined whether the instructional practices targeting self-regulation that occur throughout these segments can be accounted for based on two overall dimensions of teacher practices, namely one of promotion of metacognition and one of promotion of motivation...
