"Maybe That Concept Is Still with Us": Adolescents' Racialized and Classed Perceptions of Teachers' Expectations
Carter Andrews, Dorinda J.; Gutwein, Melissa
Multicultural Perspectives, v19 n1 p5-15 2017
Teacher expectations for student behavior and academic performance have a lasting effect on student academic achievement--not only in the immediate school year, but also many years later. Yet, we know very little about how students interpret and understand teachers' expectations for them. This article expands the literature on teachers' expectations for students by drawing on student voice to examine how middle and high school students describe and experience the expectations that teachers have for them, and the implications of these expectations for developing positive student-teacher relationships. Findings indicate that traditionally minoritized and traditionally privileged youth harbor racialized and classed perceptions of teachers' expectations.
