ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM

 

Worth Publishers invites you to our next TLC symposium, STEREOTYPE THREAT AND MICROAGGRESSIONS IN THE COLLEGE CLASSROOM.  In this workshop, Staussa Ervin and Ticily Medley review the research on the concept of stereotype threat and how it affects the performance of minority students in the college classroom. The session also covers the unintentional invalidation of minority students by well-meaning faculty by discussing the concepts of microaggressions, microinsults, and microinvalidations. It concludes with practical strategies to help reduce the probability of unintentional hostility in the classroom.

 

STEREOTYPE THREAT AND MICROAGGRESSIONS IN THE COLLEGE CLASSROOM will help you:

• Understand stereotype threat in the classroom

• Identify microaggressions in the classroom

• Learn ways to avoid microaggressions in the classroom
