Podcast about stereotype threat and the imposter syndrome: Hi code.org folks,
I stumbled across a podcast this morning called Three Miles produced by This American Life. It’s basic message is that exposing lower-income students to opportunities given to higher income students is not enough because those students are constantly battling doubts of self-worth and culture shock even as they take on these opportunities. I really liked the podcast because the message was expressed by interviewing former high school students and exploring where they are now.
Since code.org is a strong advocate of equity and opportunity, I thought you might be interested in listening to it. I know it is making me think about what else I need to do to support students before, during, and after I recruit for my CSP class.

Have a great day!
