Am I interested? Is this important to me? Can I do this? The way we go about our work matters more than anything else. Collective Teacher Efficacy (d = 1.57): It involves helping all teachers understand that the way we go about our work has a significant impact on student results for better or worse. Simultaneously, it involves stopping us from using other factors (e.g. home life, socioeconomic status, motivation) as an excuse for poor progress. Yes, these factors hinder learning, but great teachers will always try to make a difference despite this, and they often succeed. (Hattie, 2016)
