Inviting Self-Efficacy Revisited: The Role of Invitations in the Lives of Women with Mathematics-Related Careers.
Pajares, Frank; Zeldin, Amy Lapin
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v6 n1 p48-68 1999
Examines personal stories of women to assess whether verbal persuasions and invitations influenced their academic paths. Three themes emerged: (a) invitations and verbal persuasions were instrumental sources for the development of confidence; (b) self-efficacy beliefs fostered resilience to academic and social obstacles; (c) invitations reemerged at critical points as self-invitations that woman used to buttress themselves against challenges.
