About the Presentation

On Wednesday, Dr. Hardaway will discuss her recent work "The Role of Cognitive Stimulation in the Home and Maternal Responses to Low Grades in Low-Income African American Adolescents' Academic Achievement" in Journal of Youth and Adolescence.  Parental involvement in education has generally been shown to foster adolescent academic achievement, yet little is known about whether two important forms of parental involvement—how parents respond to academic underachievement and how parents provide cognitive stimulation in the home—are related to academic achievement for African American adolescents. This study uses two waves of data to evaluate whether these forms of parental involvement are related to future academic achievement for low-income African American adolescents and whether there are gender differences in these associations.

During this meeting, she will also provide advice for graduate students who are working toward publishing their research. 

About the Speaker

Dr. Hardaway’s program of research centers on understanding how socioeconomic status influences child development and family processes. Her work examines links between poverty-related risks (e.g., exposure to community violence and material hardship) and adolescents’ socioemotional adjustment and academic achievement. Dr. Hardaway’s research also focuses on understanding SES as a source of within-group variability among African Americans. She uses intersectionality as a conceptual tool to help illuminate how racism and economic disadvantage affect African Americans across classes. Her work has been published in psychology, family studies, and child/adolescent development journals, including the Journal of Youth and Adolescence, the American Journal of Community Psychology, and the Psychology of Violence.
