Description: Dr. Alcalá conducts empirical research guided by sociocultural theory, exploring the interaction between cultural and environmental factors in children's development. Currently she has projects investigating (a) cross-cultural aspects of children's cognitive development (planning, collaboration, and executive function), (b) development of children's prosocial behavior in diverse families (U.S. and Mexico), and (c) the impact of service-learning experiences in college students' civic engagement and academic development.

Join us for a presentation titled 'Learning to help at home: Children's prosocial development in cultural context.'
