New research from the University of Michigan finds that when teachers evaluate a child’s oral storytelling skills, their assessment varies based on the teacher’s race and the quality of the oral storytelling skills. In the study, teachers were given transcripts of oral reports of poorer quality and were asked to evaluate the students based on the story and stereotypical names. Nicole Gardner-Neblett, assistant professor of psychology, shares insights from the study and the importance of diversifying the teacher workforce, which is predominantly white.
