Webinar Description:
Your students’ success depends upon the beliefs they carry into your classroom, including beliefs about the difficulty of the content and their own ability to master it. There are simple strategies you can use to influence these beliefs. By using mastery experiences, models and messages, you can increase students’ self-efficacy. By teaching self-regulation skills along with rigorous content, you can teach lessons students continue to carry and use long after they leave you. You can be the one who makes a lasting impact on their lives. This webinar will be packed with concrete tools you can implement right away to make a bigger impact, and true stories will be included to make the strategies visible.
