"They are able who think they are able."
| Welcome to DrSticks.Com. My Web site is predicated upon empowered learning. This means establishing or raising a student's self-perception of capability to accomplish specific learning tasks. The research shows that a student's level of perceived capability affects the amount of effort, perseverance, and resilience that a student puts forth to understand information and accomplish assignments (Bandura, 1996; Pajares, 1997). Of note, a student's level of perceived capability may be raised. To this end, I am dedicated to helping my students raise their perception of capability to empower their learning. Thank you for visiting my web site and enjoy your journey.
