Storyboard Text

  • Bryce broke up with me there's no way I could have focused on studying.
  • Nah, I could have but I didn't study.
  • Did you pass that test yesterday?
  • I totally aced it. My parents would kill me if I didn't study.
  • Environmental Influences on Achievement
  • How was school today, Stephanie? Did you do well on that test?
  • School was ok. I aced that test but later I got into an argument with a friend.
  • Congrats on that test. Why don't you tell me what happened with your friend and I'll see if I can help you out while your dad makes dinner?
  • Socioeconomic influences on Achievement

  • Actually, mom's working late tonight. So Justin is in charge.

  • Adolescents often demonstrate a lack of motivation during the transition from primary to secondary school. Some theorists believe this lack of motivation stems from a fear of failure, self handicaping, and intentionally underachieving. 
  • Parental vales and expectations are the primary environmental influence on adolescents. Parents who encourage academic achievement reinforce and echo the school values often leads to academic success.  Authoritative parenting in which parents are neither overly strict nor overly permissive also correlates with acheivement because it allows the adolescent to act autonomously in some respects.
  • Adolescents from a low income or single parent household may feel pressured to help out at home. they often spend time caring for younger siblings or working to contribute to household income. leaving little time for academic studies.
  • Shut up, James! You're such tattle tail.
