In this workshop the presenters will lead a discussion of how stereotypes function in memory and how our knowledge of them can inhibit academic performance. Luckily, the research also points us towards pedagogical practices that can reduce the harmful effect of stereotype threat, so together we’ll develop a plan to address this on our campus and in our classrooms.
