Q. I am searching for articles that describe American tasks, skills, abilities, expectations, or norms. I am not sure where to start.

The paper I am writing is asking me to: • Select five examples to examine. You can choose from tasks, skills, abilities, expectations, or norms. • For each of the selected examples, explain how you think these selected examples shape an individual’s cognitive focus or development. • Remember to consider how these examples might vary between various regions and cultures even within the U.S. • Consider present-day tasks, skills, abilities, expectations, or norms and how they compare to previous generations in terms of development. A leads will be followed, Thanks, Sheila
