04. Dead Aid & Theory Of Change, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy 2019 Illinois Math and Science Academy

04. Dead Aid & Theory Of Change, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

SocEnt

The theory of change method is designed to bridge the gap between the initiation of an effort and the solution. Using the Theory of Change model, students will be able to find a long-term goal for their macro-problem and work backward to find an entry-point where an intervention is required. Groups will ultimately finalize their pain-point, target audience, and a more specific area of research. In addition, understanding dead aid is necessary for creating a successful product. A solution falls under dead aid when it doesn’t consider its target audience enough or dives deep enough into a pain point ...

The Relationship Between Teacher Self-Efficacy And The Quantity Of Office Discipline Referrals They Write, Brian Patrick Conary 2019 Liberty University

The Relationship Between Teacher Self-Efficacy And The Quantity Of Office Discipline Referrals They Write, Brian Patrick Conary

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

Teachers’ levels of self-efficacy affect not only how they view themselves, but also how they view their students. Some students receive more discipline referrals than others, leading to higher retention and dropout rates for those students with a significant number of discipline referrals. Discipline referrals are subjective. Therefore, each person’s viewpoint attributes to how student behavior is perceived and reported. In addition to a disproportionate number of referrals received by certain students, some teachers are more prone to write a large number of referrals. Social cognitive theory states that an individual’s self-efficacy influences his or her actions. Individuals ...
