Student Teacher Relationships & Academic Outcomes: The Importance of Trust for Students of Color
Dr. McClain’s research investigates how individuals’ social identities and culture impact psychosocial functioning, including development, learning, and mental health. This talk will focus on research examining the importance of student-teacher relationships for students of color—in particular, the unique role that students’ trust of their instructors plays in identification with academics and academic achievement. Implications for students, educators, and families will be discussed.
