Week 3

There comes a time as an instructor when you must face criticism from a frustrated student. Rather than responding defensively, it is often more helpful to try understanding the students underlying issues. How might self-efficacy influence the students issues? How might your response affect the students level of self-efficacy? For this Assignment, review this weeks Learning Resources. Then read the message posted by Jamie, a student in your online introductory psychology class (you have not heard from her previously on this issue). Consider how you might respond to Jamie in order to improve her level of self-efficacy. Finally, think about how theories of self-efficacy might support your approach.

Jamie:I am so confused by this class. I read and reread the assignments, but I just dont get it. I really dont think the instructor likes me, (he or she) just isnt giving clear instructions, and the book is so hard. Does anyone else feel this way?

Assignment (23 pages, APA format where appropriate) Submit your response to Jamies post. Your document should include the following parts: Jamies original post A response to Jamies post that may positively impact Jamies self-efficacy An explanation of how you think your response might increase Jamies self-efficacy; apply self-efficacy theory to support your explanation.
