Quoting John Hattie, "Teachers need to say - I cause learning."
High expectations matter. Teaching is not just about the kids, the resources, the curriculum. We can't just close our doors and teach. Collective teacher efficacy is part of a big story. It's not a thing just by itself. ~John Hattie
Teachers need to be having collaborative conversations without judgment. We need to bring artifacts and ask each other if this is reasonable growth for 10-12 weeks of learning.
John Hattie does a wonderful job defining collective teacher efficacy in this video.
I cause learning -- and you do too. What we do matters -- and it matters every single day.
