This column summarizes factors in cultural experience that affect approaches to learning and problem solving. It reviews the evidence over the past thirty years on cognitive style differences in culturally diverse groups in the United States including Asian, African, Latino, and Native Americans and reports recent research findings on the Hmong. Finally, it raises some issues to consider when working with students from different cultural backgrounds.
