Discuss what the teacher-expectancy effect is and how it relates to labeling theory, the self-fulfilling prophecy, and ability tracking. Also, incorporate experiences, either personal or of others, on how this effect has affected you or them personally, either from a positive (honors, gifted, etc.) or a negative aspect (general track, learning disabilities, etc.). Be sure to incorporate information from the book and discuss the many issues with ability tracking. MLA format: make sure you use 12-font, double-space, 1-inch margins, use paragraphs and that you CITE your sources within your paper. One source MUST be your text, and you may, but do not have to, use additional, outside sources. Make sure you include a reference/work cited page and a word count as well (750 word minimum). If the formatting and other requirements are not met, you will lose points.
