Bandura & Self-Efficacy

-Self-efficacy (sense of being able to do something on your own as a result of repeated experiences or mastery)
-Teachers do this by creating challenges that are difficult but achievable
-Support language and cognitive abilities that enable them to think, plan, and solve problems
-Provide manipulatives that allow children to do things on their own while working through frustrations (so they can grow to the next level)
-Modeling and imitation from other peers or adult, the child who observes this will enhance children’s desired appropriate behavior
