Three continuing research projects may benefit interested honor students:
(1) Children’s Understandings of Respect Project. This project examines how preschoolers
and elementary school children develop their notions of respect and how they try to
act respectfully in socially accepted ways. The methods used in this study include
quantitative and narrative analysis. One part of the project focuses on cross-cultural
examination of Chinese and US school children’s notions of respect. Another part of
the project involves a children-generated list of their own words about respect, which
will be analyzed in relation to other data.
(2) Comparative Study of Preschool Children’s Emotion Socialization. Three emotional
behaviors of young children are the main foci of this study: crying, temper tantrum
and help seeking.
(3) Comparative study of preschool teachers’ cultural beliefs and practice.
Requirements for Student Applicants:Interested in answering their own questions, having a broader interest
in social sciences, willing to work independently and creatively, taking responsibility
seriously, and enjoying collaborating with others.
