Should We Raise Pupils' Self-Esteem?
Education 3-13, v33 n1 p7-12 Mar 2005
This article argues that the teacher is not well served by relying on the construct of self-esteem. Although an important idea in psychological health, self-esteem is not of direct importance to the teacher. More useful constructs would be those of self-concept and self-efficacy; both of which can be related directly to academic achievement.
