What matters most to evan s success

What matters most to Evan’s success?


It s really very simple

It’s really very simple

Proximal variables matter most –

the people closest to Evan and

what they do and the systems

(people) that support them


Proximal variables to student learning

Proximal variables to student learning

The student’s –

  • prior learning, which teachers have provided;

  • metacognitive skills, which can be taught;

  • motivation to learn and sense of self-efficacy, which a teacher nurtures;

  • effort and time on task, which a teacher expects;

  • interaction—academic and social—with teachers and students; and,

  • family’s engagement and support for learning, which a teacher curries.

    The teacher’s -

  • instructional planning and classroom management;

  • instructional delivery through a variety of modes;

  • personalization (individualization) of instruction for each student; and,

  • taught and aligned curriculum, designed by teacher teams.
