Reading, the Pupil, Efficacy, and the Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
Efficacy and its effects upon student achievement need nourishment. For a student to believe that he/she can and therefore does achieve needs fostering continuously within each student in the curriculum. With the tremendous emphasis being placed on reading instruction and student achievement by legislators and governors of individual states, efficacy skills need to be promoted so that each learner feels confident in high attainment. This paper discusses how teachers can help students develop feelings of self efficacy, finding that they need to develop a curriculum which stresses the success of the learner within the framework of a challenging program of reading. The paper also considers several curriculum areas besides reading, including social studies, mathematics, and science. It notes that each curriculum area has its own contributions to make in developing the feeling of efficacy in the individual. (NKA)
