Students with high self-efficacy have the power, skills, and self-belief to double (if not triple) the speed of their own learning. How do we support students in building self-efficacy? By using a few simple yet powerful practices, teachers can use praise effectively; grow learner dispositions thoughtfully; challenge negative thinking; and engage in meaningful goalsetting, feedback, and progress-making with their students. Come learn how to change outcomes for your students through understanding the power of clear learning expectations and equipping students to use metacognition to move their own learning forward.
