Hello Class! My name is Marianne Harris, and I designed this guide to help you get familiar with some of the library resources available to you.
To start, I recommend you watch the Welcome Video where you'll learn a bit about me as one of the librarians you can connect with for additional support and help.
Next, if you are new to the research process or if you'd like to brush up on your research skills, I recommend you complete the What is Research Tutorial and the Getting Started with Research Tutorial. These tutorials were designed by Los Rios librarians for Los Rios students, so you'll be able to apply what you learn to all of the resources in our libraries.
If you have any specific questions the resources found in this guide, or if have any suggestions for additions or improvements, please let me know directly. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Write a 4-5 page essay in which you discuss the concept of stereotype threat and analyze the extent to which you think it has had an impact on your educational performance in the past or could have an impact on your educational performance as a college student.
In addition to providing information from Steele’s book, your essay should include references to at least three credible sources from the ARC Library databases. At least one of these sources needs to be a scholarly journal article, but you can also use general or specialized reference works, interviews with Steele, credible magazine or newspaper articles on stereotype threat, or articles that take issue with Steele’s conclusions. You may use additional sources not in the databases, but they must be credible. Your evidence for this essay will also include specific, relevant personal experiences. Write for an audience of both peers and college professors.
