Micromessaging
Micromessages
• Small, subtle, semiconscious messages
we send and receive
when we interact with
others
Microinequities
• Negative micromessages we send
other people that
cause them to feel
devalued, slighted,
discouraged, or
excluded
Microaffirmations
• Positive micromessages that cause
people to feel valued,
included, or
encouraged

Why Think About Micromessaging?
Intent

Micro-messaging
Engagement

classroom
Impact
Student
Performance
Small and seemingly insignificant behaviors may
result in unfavorable learning outcomes.
Impact Is More Important Than Intent!

Examining the Small
Consider and share a specific incident when you
were …
• unintentionally discouraged or hurt by something
SMALL someone said or did
• deeply valued by your colleague or family member
in a SMALL yet powerful way.
- How did you know? What did that person do to
communicate your value?

Micro-inequities and
Micro-affirmations
32
Positive Micromessages
Micro-affirmations are micromessages we send that validate and
recognize other people in positive and supportive ways.
33
Activity: Inoculate and Be
Affirmative!
Make a concerted over-effort to become affirmative:
• It takes time (a year or more!)
• It takes effort (a conscious plan)
• It takes support (peers and a learning community)
34
Impact of Micro-Affirmations on
Females in STEM
• Enhanced creativity and
innovation and willingness to
take risks
• Increased engagement in
complex tasks and openended thinking
• Improved caring about
learning
• Increased interest in STEM
and development of girls’
STEM identity

35
Super Strategies
• Practice positive affirmations.
• Work with peers to identify unintended biases to
improve your instruction.
• Help the student identify someone in his or her life
who recognizes the student’s potential, connects the
student’s strengths to characteristics of a profession,
and teaches him or her how to enter that field.
• Intervene in students’ conflicts and teach them to use
inoculations and affirmations when communicating.
• Be diverse in the examples used in the classroom to
illustrate concepts and ideas.

38
Moving Forward
• As the scientist in your classroom, review your data
and begin to formulate a hypothesis for any
weaknesses or gaps that exist in student outcomes.
• As a researcher in your classroom, think about how
your methods might be changed to improve your
students’ performance.
• As the coach in your classroom, consider the key
messages you can make to your “team members” to
affect their best game.
• As the educator in your classroom, recognize and
reflect on the power you have to impact the lives of
students.

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do
everything, but still I can do something; and
because I cannot do everything, I will not
refuse to do something I can do.”
