Stereotype Threat

Stereotype threat is being at risk of confirming, as self-characteristic, a negative stereotype about one’s group. I believe this stereotype threat is a huge threat to deaf/hh/db students in classroom settings based on the research articles I have read done on academic success for people of color in classroom settings. There are so many parallels that stand out.. In order to change we need to expose how -ism’s and oppression can affect behaviors and attitudes of teachers, interpreters, and students in a classroom.
