Abstract

This capstone addresses the question “What are high leverage learning experiences that will

encourage and support student’s self-efficacy in a primary classroom?” An overview of self- efficacy and an exploration of the factors that support self-efficacy growth within the classroom

are presented. Cognitive psychologist Albert Bandura’s four sources; enactive mastery, vicarious experience, verbal persuasion and physiological arousal are key components that are evaluated and implemented to demonstrate the integration and benefits of efficacy in the classroom. Current research related to self-efficacy and how to enhance reading achievement when applying studied strategies that support student’s motivation in their reading work are also posited. Finally, the relationship between teacher’s mindset and personal self-efficacy and its effects on students’ learning are examined and presented.
