Affective Teaching for Data Driven Learning: How Can Strengths-Based Training Support Urban Teacher Efficacy?
Marcos, Teri
Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, v4 p57-72 2008
The purpose of this study was to examine urban teachers' identified strengths in varied cognitive, affective, and psychological capacities, and their impact on self-efficacy and teacher practices. Clifton and Anderson in the Gallup Organization's Strengths Quest (2004) presented compelling evidence suggesting a mind-set of "what's right with me" and further "what's right with others" can build excellence in future achievements, relationships, and other life experiences. This study compared the findings of Clifton and Anderson's research to that of P-12 inner city teachers' perceptions about the impact their top 5 identified strengths had on improving the quality of education within their classrooms, using a mixed methods approach.
