Agency and Authenticity: Fostering Self-Efficacy Through Problem-Based Learning

  • Boy Voice and Choice (2019-20)

In this action research project, I sought to investigate whether a problem-based learning programme would promote greater levels of self-efficacy in middle school boys and if so what type of student this would have the greatest impact on. I wanted our boys to be interested and invested in real-life problems and feel that their individual choices and actions could impact on both their learning and their environment.
