It is important for educators and those working within academic settings to recognize the unique academic needs of minority students, particularly Black females. As double minorities, Black females face barriers and other forms of oppression unlike any of their counterparts. Academic identity is defined as a perception of self within the academic domain, and for this group can be influenced by structural racism and gender biases embedded within educational systems. Utilizing the Female Achievement Model for Excellence (FAME Model) (Ford, 2013) this course will provide participants with increased insight into the influential factors that impact achievement, academic performance, engagement, and career aspirations for this population.
Participants will gain an improved understanding of the academic identity of Black females, within K-12 settings. Practical approaches, specifically the "Fame Model (Ford, 2013) will be reviewed in efforts to assist with overcoming identified barriers that have impacted development and long-term academic success for this population.
