Tan, Fiona D. H.; Whipp, Peter R.; Gagné, Marylène; Van Quaquebeke, Niels – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2019

Vahidnia, Fatemeh; Ghonsooly, Behzad; Shahriari, Hesamoddin – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2019
The teacher's pet phenomenon is generally regarded as a negative concept by both teachers and students as it violates the principle of fairness. A careful review of the existing literature reveals that the concept of 'teacher's pet' is taken for granted and therefore no inclusive definition has been provided. In response to this gap, the present…

Taxer, Jamie L.; Becker-Kurz, Betty; Frenzel, Anne C. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2019
Teaching can be an emotionally exhausting profession, thus mechanisms that protect teachers from feeling emotionally overextended need to be investigated.

Jackson, Matthew C.; Leal, Christina C.; Zambrano, Jeanette; Thoman, Dustin B. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2019
Although interest development is often conceptualized as a process that occurs within an individual, interest can be developed through various social mechanisms. Messages that suggest that one is or is not welcome within a context may serve to bolster or attenuate interest in those contexts. In a sample of first semester freshmen undergraduate…

Demanet, Jannick; Van Houtte, Mieke – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2019
Strain theories expect socio-economically disadvantaged students to be overrepresented among perpetrators of school-deviant behavior. Empirical research, however, is inconclusive about the SES-deviance relationship. Recently, strain theorists argued that economic deprivation, rather than a socio-economic status (SES) index is related to…

Psychological factors have been implicated in STEM persistence but remain poorly understood.

A large body of experimental research on stereotype threat concentrated on immediate consequences of this effect. Far less attention has been given to the underlying mechanisms that may explain accumulative and long-term consequences of stereotype threat. To shed new light on the dynamic of stereotype threat, the current research examined the…

In this paper we discuss the social identity processes by which discrimination can have an impact on ethnic-racial minority group students' academic engagement. After considering the forms, targets and sources of discrimination, we argue that discrimination implies social identity threat. Threats to ethnic/racial identity compromise specific…
