||Each of the techniques you reviewed
capitalizes on the three strongest contributors to self-efficacy:
past performance, vicarious experiences, and verbal persuasion.
The techniques of teacher feedback emphasizing student skill
acquisition, goal setting and measuring, and modeling allow
us to help students recognize their own and their classmates'
successful experiences. As you apply these techniques, you will
begin to see your student develop stronger confidence in her
skills, and she will be increasingly willing to tackle new and
more difficult learning tasks. A summary of all of the possible
strategies can be found on the Daily
the Understanding Check Form after
you review this CD. We will use the form to clarify any misunderstanding
that may exist about the specific strategies you are implementing
on a daily basis during this study.
Each week you will submit a Daily
Strategy Report that documents the self-efficacy strategies
you implemented during the week. A copy of the form is included
on this CD, although you will actually submit the report each
week online through the Internet. Once the study begins, we
will send you weekly reminders with the web address where
you should file the report.
