Keys to Peer Influence on Achievement
(by Laurence Steinberg)
By tracking students over a three-year period, we were able to see how they were doing in school at the beginning of the time period, which friends they were spending time with, and whether their school performance and behavior changed over time as a result. By comparing the academic careers of students who began high school with equivalent grades, but who had different sorts of friends during the school years, we were able to see whether the type of friends that adolescents have actually makes a difference in their school performance.
The answer is that it most certainly does, especially in two areas: academic performance and delinquency. Youngsters whose friends were more academically oriented — that is, whose friends had higher grades, spent more time on homework, had higher educational aspirations, and who were more involved in extracurricular activities — did better over the course of high school than students who began school with similar records but who had less academically oriented friends. Similarly, students whose friends were more delinquent — who used more drugs and alcohol and who had more conduct problems — developed more problems themselves over time than did adolescents who began the study with the same behavior profile but who had friends who were less delinquent.
These findings tell us, then, that parents have legitimate reason to be concerned about the qualities and values of their children’s friends, especially during early adolescence, when susceptibility to peer influence runs strong. There is also reason to be concerned about the characteristics of the crowd to which an adolescent belongs, since our study found that this influence matters, too. All other things being equal, adolescents who are members of more academically oriented crowds do better in school than other students, whereas those who are members of more alienated crowds do worse and are more likely to get into trouble.
How large a difference do friends make? In one set of analyses, we were able to contrast the influence of best friends with the influence of parents on two important outcomes: the grades in school that the adolescent was getting, and the adolescent’s amount of drug and alcohol use. At least by high school, the influence of friends on school performance and drug use is more substantial than the influence of parents’ practices at home. Parents may influence their children’s long-term educational plans, but when it comes to day-to-day influences on schooling — whether students attend class, how much time they spend on homework, how hard they try in school, and the grades they bring home — friends are more influential than parents.
1. A B The researchers compared groups of students with similar grades.
2. A B They compared the students’ grades at the beginning of the school year with their grades at the end of the year.
3. A B Students who had academically oriented friends had better grades over the course of
4. A B Students who had less academically oriented friends had worse grades.
5. A B Close friends and crowds both had an important influence on students’ grades and
6. A B Parents and peers had a similar influence on students’ grades.
Questions 7—12 are based on Text 2. You are going to read an article about soap operas. Six sentences have been removed from the brochure. Choose from the sentences A—G the one which fits in each gap 7—12. There is one extra sentence you do not need to use.
In the 1930s, when radio was still in its infancy, broadcasting stations in the USA wondered what type of programmes they should put on during the daytime. They came up with the idea of producing serials that would be on the radio every afternoon telling a continuous story. (7) __________. Knowing that the majority of the audience would be women, the broadcasters decided that the women in the serials would be strong characters and the men weak. The serials were an instant success with listeners. As the radio stations were paid for by advertising, these programmes always carried advertisements and, since one of the most frequently advertised products was soap, the programmes became known as Soaps or Soap Operas.
(8) __________. The BBC had no interest in producing this type of programme but during the Second World War it was thought that the Americans should be shown how well the British people were standing up to the war. (9) __________. It was called Front Line Family and showed how a typical English family, the Robinsons, were living during the war.
(10) __________. The BBC were unwilling to do this but finally agreed and broadcast the programme in Britain, but changed the name to The Robinsons. The programme ran for six years.
Other soaps were introduced later, one telling about the life of a doctor’s family and another, The Archers, about life in a country village. The original aim of The Archers was to inform farmers of new developments in agriculture. The serial began in 1951 and is still to be heard on five evenings every week.
Some attempts at soap opera began to appear on television in Britain in the mid-1950s, but it was not until 1961 that the first real soap opera appeared. (11) __________. The serial, called
Coronation Street, was about the lives of people living in a working-class street near Manchester. (12) __________.
The BBC never managed to produce a really successful soap opera until 1984, when it introduced East Enders. This programme is about life in the area of the east end of London. For a time it had more viewers than Coronation Street and still rivals it as the most popular programme on the British television. There is a major difference between the two programmes in that East Enders concentrates on rather depressing realism whilst Coronation Street, although having serious storylines, always contains a strong element of comedy.
This was shown not by the BBC, but by commercial television.
To keep the listeners’ interest, there would be far more crisis occuring than in real life.
Some people in Britain managed to hear the programme and asked for it to be broadcast for the British audience.
It was really by chance that the soap opera appeared in Britain.
Although the serial was planned to run for only thirteen weeks, it is still to be seen several nights every week and almost every week has more viewers than any other programme on British television.
For this reason, a soap opera was written for the North American service of the BBC.
It has always been the most popular programme on television.
III. Use of English
For questions 1—15 read the text and look carefully at each line. Some of the lines are correct and some have a word that shouldn’t be there. If a line is correct, put a tick (v) in the appropriate box on your answer sheet. If a line has a word which should not be there, write the word down in the appropriate box on your answer sheet.
Quotations and sayings are part of our language and our way of
life. As the poet Emerson said, we use of them by necessity; to
remind ourselves to look before we leap or to avoid crossing
our bridges before we come over to them. We use them by habit,
often not realizing we are doing so much, and we all love to
use an apt quotation to enliven conversation or score a point
in an argument. The booklet contains over above a thousand
quotations, proverbs and sayings. Together they offer a great
deal of the information, advice, amusement and comfort.
Emerson wrote: “I hate quotations”, so it is doubtful that he
would have been used this booklet — but we hope that you will.
Whether you use it to improve your knowledge more, as an aid to
solving crossword puzzles, to enrich your own speech or simply
for idle reading in your spare time, it will put you in to
touch with some of the cleverest minds of the past and at present.
Happy reading and happy quoting!
For questions 16—23 put each phrasal verb from the box in the appropriate place in the text.
