OVERVIEW Virtually all human outcomes, abilities, and behaviors reflect a complex interaction of nature (biological factors) and nurture (social-environmental factors) For example, many psychological processes that were once assumed to be basic and uniform across all humans were later found to differ across cultures, suggesting that the unique environments in which people are raised can shape the emergence of basic biological processes. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS Summarize and interpret a peer-reviewed article that describes a cross-cultural difference in some psychological process. You may choose from one of the articles provided below or find an article on your own. If you have taken this class in the past, you must choose an article that you have not written about previously. For your convenience, we provide several articles that you may use (see below). However, you are welcome to find an article on your own if you prefer. You might find the EBSCO PsycInfo database useful if you choose to locate your own article. If you need assistance using PsycInfo, please contact your TA and/or consult with a Reference Librarian at the USF Library (http://www.lib.usf.edu/). RECOMMENDED ARTICLES Becker, J. C., Butz, D.

Provide enough detail so that a naïve reader could fully understand the topic of the article. Identify the features of the groups (cultures) that are being compared in the study. Are these people from different countries? If so, what countries? Are they groups within the same country who are raised within separate subcultures or communities? Describe the groups in enough detail so that it is clear where they were recruited and how they differ from each other. Describe the findings of the article. How do people from these different groups or cultures respond or behave differently? Explain the findings. Explain why people from these different groups or cultures are theorized to differ in their behavior, perceptual processes, or other psychological phenomenon. Describe the unique life experiences, backgrounds, or prior learning that presumably accounts for the observed findings. FORMATTING AND GUIDELINES ? The final paper should be: ? 3-4 pages long ?
