Changing School Culture: From Deficiencies to Strengths--An Intervention Study about School Culture
Zeinz, Horst; Scheunpflug, Annette
Online Submission, US-China Education Review v7 n1 p32-37 Jan 2010
This research project focuses on the question: Which effects do teachers' attitudes have on students' academic self-concept and students' competences? The study is informed by the theoretical perspective that competences and individual skills can be improved especially when students and teachers are confident about the possibility of change of these variables and when teachers make this explicit as a central theme. In our intervention study, we investigate whether a change in the teaching and learning setting (moving from a focus on deficits to a focus on strengths) is able to enhance students' academic self-concept and students' competences, even across domains. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.) [This project is financed by Foundation for Education in Public Private Partnership.]
