Abstract:Worldwide studies show that the performance of young males in reading and writing is increasingly poorer than females. I found that placing males in contact with females activates stereotype threat, which causes deficits in male literacy task performance. The results suggest that male-only classrooms are ideal for developing good literacy skills.
