Self-Efficacy in the ABE Classroom

Learner retention is a struggle for most programs. Albert Badura's Social Cognitive Theory highlights the importance of learner self-efficacy to help learners feel motivated to attend class. Regular attendance means improved learner retention. Learner retention increases the chance that students will receive instruction for a duration that may result in moving up an educational functioning level. Instructors can help learners improve their learners' self-efficacy through some strategies and techniques. We will look at those strategies and how the instructor can work them into their everyday instruction.
