When Teachers Believe, Students Achieve — The Power of Collective Efficacy

MCLA’s focus on high impact practices that increase student learning continues on December 13 and 14, 2018 at the Augusta Civic Center with our two-day institute on collective efficacy, led by Jenni Donohoo. “Collective teacher efficacy is greater than three times more powerful and predictive of student achievement than socioeconomic status. It is more than double the effect of prior achievement and more than triple the effect of home environment and parental involvement.” (The Power of Collective Efficacy, Donohoo, Hattie, and Eells)

  • Which leadership behaviors support collective efficacy.
  • How to focus collaborative work on student learning.

Our Two-day Process: Educators will be engaged in a structure over the two days for planning, acting, assessing, and reflecting on practices that foster collective teacher efficacy.
