Self-Efficacy & Resiliency:
A student’s belief about her/his capability to perform a task or manage a situation.
A student’s ability to overcome obstacles or rebound from setbacks.
We know that:
- Raising students’ self-efficacy can be more effective in raising achievement levels than remedial programs, tutors, and adopting a new curriculum, and at much less cost.
- There are four proven ways to increase student self-efficacy.
- Student self-efficacy is closely related to teacher self-efficacy.
- Resilient students will be more successful in school and in the future, than those who are less resilient.
- All students are born resilient, but many lose this quality because three environmental factors are missing in their lives.
- Educators can make these three factors part of every student’s school experience.
At the end of this workshop:
Participants will have the knowledge and skills necessary to . . .
- Raise self-efficacy and resiliency levels of the students they serve.
- Explain self-efficacy and resiliency to colleagues and parents.
- Raise their own self-efficacy and resiliency levels.
During this economic downturn, many educators are being asked to do more with less.
Being able to raise self-efficacy and resiliency levels is one way to do this.
