Study: Interventions help Latino students beat 'stereotype threat'
from Education Week
Latino middle-school students whose academic performance may have been undermined by "stereotype threat" — an anxiety that can stem from being a member of a racial, ethnic or gender group associated with negative stereotypes — earned higher grades after participating in classroom assignments meant to help them feel more confident about themselves, a new study has found. Researchers from Stanford University and the University of California, Santa Barbara had a group of students, both Latino and white, participate in "values-affirmation" classroom assignments throughout the school year.
