Building Student Confidence in the Classroom


Confidence is nothing magical or difficult to understand. Put simply, it is merely the result of repeated successful experiences. If we think back to our confidence level the first time, we rode a bicycle versus the 50th time, we see that experience and more importantly, success, increased our confidence. Likewise, our confidence the first day of a new job verses the 50th, the first time we met someone verses the 50th and so on. Without successful experiences on which to draw, children will not believe that they are capable. Telling children, they are bright, special, unique, and capable and so on, without their having actual experiences to validate the words really has no meaning. Children only build upon that which they can see, which in turn affects that which they can feel.
