“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.”
Self efficacy is commonly defined as the belief in one’s ability to succeed. At MUSE, we define self-efficacy as
“My belief in my ability to be successful by being open, resourceful, and persistent.”
At MUSE, each student is taught to increase their belief in their ability to be successful by being open, resourceful and persistent when they are doing a project, learning academic content, resolving conflict and any other event in a student’s life. By teaching students to be open, resourceful and persistent, students learn that they can accomplish anything and in doing so, become very confident in their individual voice.
