Sample text

CONCLUSION The bio-cultural perspective proposes that human behavior is a product that emerges from experiences within and across multiple settings. Critical attributes of experiences unfold across three overlapping subsystems: the value system, the symbol system and the language system, each of which has psychological implications for the developing person. More specifically, these experiences describe the synergistic interactions between characteristics of the developing person (biologically based dispositions) and tasks and significant other/s within cultural niches.

Mindful of the criticisms of such measures for students from racial and ethnic minority populations (Armour-Thomas, 1992a; Armour-Thomas and Gopaul-McNicol, 1998; Cummins, 1991; Gopaul-McNicol, 1992a; Milliard, 1996; Samuda et al, 1989; Williams, 1970) though, caution is urged in how and under what conditions standardized tests of intelligence are to be used in the educational arena. Imphcit in the use of standardized intelligence test data for these purposes is a notion that differences in test scores reflect fundamental differences in intellectual capacities and that the goal of assessment is to objectively sort children according to these underlying differences.

EXPERIENCES WITHIN CULTURAL NICHES We contend that it is within the cultural niche that biologically based dispositions are channeled along particular developmental trajectories through the process of cultural socialization. And it is through this process that biologically based dispositions in language, cognition, and personality are transformed over time into progressively higher classes of psychological functioning. Behavior observed at any point in time is thus a product of the synergistic influences of cultural and psychological processes operating between the person in interaction with forces within the cultural niche.
