Successful learning is as much about emotion as it is about cognition
Discover how to manage the emotional dynamics of learning success and build strong relationships in order to realize profound achievement gains. Bestselling author Rick Stiggins shares important lessons learned from his career—most importantly, how to help students become confident, lifelong learners.
Separate chapters for teachers, parents, and school leaders discuss how to form teams to explore home and school partnerships, the keys to effective learning, a growth mindset, the Visible Learning® research, and assessment FOR learning. Rick shows us how to ensure students
- Understand the learning targets
- Are able to monitor their own progress
- Can act assertively to close the gap between where they are now and where they need to be
Call it self-efficacy, student agency, or internal locus of control—the label doesn’t matter. What does matter is that every student discovers that they can meet whatever challenges our rapidly changing society presents.
