The Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Implications for the Training/Learning Process.
Campbell, Clifton P.; Simpson, Charles R.
This packet contains 27 transparency masters and a script for instructor presentation of a 1-hour workshop on the Pygmalion effect in training. It is aimed at trainers as well as classroom teachers. The focus of the guide is on how trainers'/teachers' behavior toward students influences the outcome of training, with high expectations leading to high performance and vice versa. Materials include an outline of instruction (which functions as a suggested script of presenter comments), suggestions for instructor activities, and 13 references. Some of the transparency topics are the Pygmalion mythology, modern behavioral science, social and psychological processes, ways to enhance student performance, statements that erode student confidence, and using mental imagery.
