There is a shortfall of girls and women pursuing STEM disciplines, a deficit that may be partially attributed to subtle forms of bias that are tied to traditional gender role stereotypes. The current study examined these subtle biases in high school teachers and students in two ways: by asking teachers and students to attribute masculine and…

Berger, Nathan; Archer, Jennifer – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2016
In recent years motivational researchers have spent considerable time examining race/ethnicity and gender differences in academic and social achievement goals, but little time examining the influence of socioeconomic status (SES). This lack of attention is surprising given that both student motivation and SES have been shown to predict academic…

Anttila, Henrika; Pyhältö, Kirsi; Soini, Tiina; Pietarinen, Janne – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2016
Academic emotions are central ingredients in student teachers' learning. They have been shown to affect cognitive performance, motivation and achievement (e.g. Linnenbrink-Garcia et al. in "Contemp Educ Psychol" 36(1):13-24, 2011). However, until recently the role of emotions in student teachers' learning has largely been neglected (e.g.…

Richards, K. Andrew; Levesque-Bristol, Chantal; Templin, Thomas J.; Graber, Kim C. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2016
The role of a teacher is becoming increasingly complex, and it is more important than ever that teachers develop resilience to overcome stress and burnout. A conceptual framework to explain the ability of resilience to decrease role stress and burnout was developed and tested. Participants included 415 teachers (174 elementary, 241 secondary) who…

Ethnic minority students face many disadvantages in school, which might be due in part to teachers' stereotypical expectations and attitudes. Dual process theories of impression and judgment formation specify person information that confirms or disconfirms stereotypical expectations as determinants of how judgments are formed. While…

Mahatmya, Duhita; Lohman, Brenda J.; Brown, Elizabeth L.; Conway-Turner, Jameela – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2016
Demographic shifts in the United States have resulted in similar demographic shifts between K-12 teachers and their students, resulting in important implications for the educational outcomes of traditionally marginalized students and educators' cultural awareness required in teaching diverse classrooms. Using data from the Three-City Teacher…

Sommerfeld, Amanda K. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2016
University enrollment rates have increased substantially both in the U.S. and internationally over the past 40 years. Unfortunately, university completion rates have not kept pace, causing scholars to project that international labor markets may face a deficit in qualified (i.e., bachelors-degree or equivalent) workers. In the U.S., this could…
