  2. 2. The essence of the Law of Expectation is three words: The Law of “Expect the best.” Expectation The teacher should influence his students learning and behaviour by adjusting expectationsThursday 28 July 2011
  3. 3. What is your usual expectation of classes at LTCi: Is this different for differing teachers - what is different, why is it different?Thursday 28 July 2011
  4. 4. Subject Character Style What is your usual expectation Richard of classes at LTCi: Is this different for Ritesh differing teachers - what is different, Ben why is it different? AylwinThursday 28 July 2011
  5. 5. What is your usual expectation of ‘your’ students? Do you have high expectations of the people around you, your family, your friends...? Most people don’t! Often we think such thoughts are private and make no difference anyway - don’t let your true feelings show and it will all be fine.Thursday 28 July 2011
  6. 6. The Law of Expectation rejects this idea and says what you think has a powerful and undeniable impact on everyone you meet, inside and out of the classroom.Thursday 28 July 2011
  7. 7. Is it Biblically similar to honour? If you honour someone more you find their performance ‘improves’ and your satisfaction with them increases too.Thursday 28 July 2011
  8. 8. Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another —and all the more as you see the Day approaching.Thursday 28 July 2011
  9. 9. Hebrews 3:12-13 See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sins deceitfulness.Thursday 28 July 2011
  10. 10. Consider - to scrutinise, to evaluate, to constantly look at our audience and say, “Where are they? Are they with me right now or not? What are their needs? How can I adjust my content and delivery to teach them more effectively?” It also means, “to brood over”, to quietly analyse the messages you are sending me, your body language. It is easy as teachers to forget to consider the students and get caught up in the content of teaching.Thursday 28 July 2011
  11. 11. Consider - to scrutinise, to evaluate, to constantly look at our audience and say, “Where are they? Are they with me right now or not? What are their needs? How can I adjust my content and delivery to teach them more effectively?” It also means, “to brood over”, to quietly analyse the messages you are sending me, your body language. It is easy as teachers to forget to consider the students and get caught up in the content of teaching.Thursday 28 July 2011
  12. 12. Consider - to scrutinise, to evaluate, to constantly look at our audience and say, “Where are they? Are they with me right now or not? What are their needs? How can I adjust my content and delivery to teach them more effectively?” It also means, “to brood over”, to quietly analyse the messages you are sending me, your body language. It is easy as teachers to forget to consider the students and get caught up in the content of teaching.Thursday 28 July 2011
  13. 13. Heb 10:25 - consider, (done by me for you without you necessarily knowing), is followed by the idea of spurring one another on - this link is made by exhorting or encouraging you. Exhort/encourage is not criticism but mutual concern coming alongside to love, care and help. Have you exhorted anyone today?Thursday 28 July 2011
  14. 14. Exhort to love and good works is really positive - but also Heb 3:12-13 brings an idea of caring enough to help bring you back on track if things aren’t as they should be - a frank conversation or rebuke might be needed to exhort someone.Thursday 28 July 2011
  15. 15. Neh. 13:25 I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in Gods name and said: "You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves.Thursday 28 July 2011
  16. 16. Do you love someone enough to rebuke them, are you concerned enough to speak openly to them? They might not like you for it! As a teacher you are asking’ “how can I help you grow, is there sin you need help with, what do you need?”Thursday 28 July 2011
  17. 17. The essence of the Law of Expectation is three words: The Law of “Expect the best.” Expectation The teacher should influence his students learning and behaviour by adjusting expectationsThursday 28 July 2011

  23. 23. A powerful force - for good or ill - lies within our expectationsThursday 28 July 2011
  24. 24. Maxim 1: Expectations exist in everyone about everything all the time We all have expectations already - about everything! If you expected great and got good - you are disappointed. If you expect good and it turns out to be great - you are excited. If reality matches or exceeds expectations you are (usually) happy.Thursday 28 July 2011
  25. 25. The problem is reality. We live on earth with sinful people, heaven will be perfect, earth will not be. Acknowledging this and working through the reality of your expectations helps you to adjust where necessary. What did you expect of this class? What do you expect of marriage? Without adjustment expectations what results?Thursday 28 July 2011

After 2 weeks of emotional distress it was concluded this was not possible. To deal with the backlog new staff were employed, in a different office, with the new machines.

  39. 39. Maxim 3: Expectations are rooted in the past, influence the present, and impact the future Expectations are usually built on information - or misinformation - from the past.

  51. 51. Wilkinson makes an important point:Thursday 28 July 2011
  52. 52. Wilkinson makes an important point: If your initial thought and expectation of a student is positive there is a high probability of the student performing well - and also of you, the teacher, performing well.Thursday 28 July 2011
  53. 53. The essence of the Law of Expectation is three words: The Law of “Expect the best.” Expectation The teacher should influence his students learning and behaviour by adjusting expectationsThursday 28 July 2011
  54. 54. Maxim 1: Expectations exist in everyone about everything all the time Maxim 2: Expectations impact us and others Maxim 3: Expectations are rooted in the past, influence the present, and impact the futureThursday 28 July 2011
  55. 55. Maxim 4: Expectations are imposed through our attitudes and actions Attitudes are internal. Actions are external. Watch a teacher relating to various students and you know through their body language, eye contact, tone of voice, remarks etc. what their expectation of the student is. Consider this research looking at how expectation impacts teaching.Thursday 28 July 2011
  56. 56. When interacting with a class teachers with low expectations tend to: ๏Wait less time for an answer to a question, then give the answer or call on someone else ๏Question the student less frequently ๏Inappropriately reinforce a wrong answer from the student ๏Don’t give helpful clues or repeat the question ๏Only give brief less informative feedback ๏Interrupt mistakes more quicklyThursday 28 July 2011
  57. 57. When setting the level of achievement teachers with low expectations tend to: ๏Criticise students more often for failure ๏Praise the students less often for success ๏Write fewer notes on papers / assignmentsThursday 28 July 2011
  58. 58. ๏Teach at a slower, less intense pace ๏Fail to give the benefit of the doubt in borderline cases ๏Use fewer of the most effective but time consuming methods ๏Assign more busy work not meaningful projectsThursday 28 July 2011
  59. 59. ๏Teach at a slower, less intense pace ๏Fail to give the benefit of the doubt in borderline cases ๏Use fewer of the most effective but time consuming methods ๏Assign more busy work not meaningful projectsThursday 28 July 2011
  60. 60. When relating personally to the student teachers with low expectations tend to: ๏Fail to give positive feedback on public responses ๏Pay less attention to, and interact less frequently ๏Interact with the student privately more than publicly ๏Have less friendly interaction ๏Smile less and limit encouraging physical touch ๏Maintain eye contact less often ๏Limit positive nonverbal communicationThursday 28 July 2011
  61. 61. So, potentially low achieving students are not treated in the same way as expected higher achievers. In fact some people argue that teachers “cause” their students to decline by providing them with fewer educational opportunities and by teaching them less materially less skillfully.Thursday 28 July 2011
  62. 62. Maxim 5: Expectations influence the future, whether stated or unstated Voiced or unconscious expectations still impact others. Praise a visiting speaker in advance and tell the visitor how great the church is - and you will probably have a great time. But you don’t have to state your expectations to have a great influenceThursday 28 July 2011
  63. 63. No one knows how unstated expectations work - but research shows they really do influence the behaviour of others. On a very simple level this can be done through our body language. What do these images tell you?Thursday 28 July 2011
  64. 64. Thursday 28 July 2011
  65. 65. Thursday 28 July 2011
  66. 66. Thursday 28 July 2011
  67. 67. Thursday 28 July 2011

  69. 69. Thursday 28 July 2011
  70. 70. Thursday 28 July 2011
  71. 71. Thursday 28 July 2011
  72. 72. Maxim 6: Expectations impair others if set too low or too high for too long Unrealistic expectations might never be attained - leaving the person feeling like a failure. Expectations too low and interest can be lost and the person underachieves.Thursday 28 July 2011
  73. 73. Your report has 5 A’s and 1 B+ - your parents say it is very disappointing that you got B+ - how would you feel? Unrealistic expectations can crush a child. And, extremely negative expectations can be self-fulfilling. “You’re stupid, you will never achieve anything...” Expectations need to be realistic and precise - not too high or too low.Thursday 28 July 2011
  74. 74. Maxim 7: Expectations empower others when guided by love The ultimate reason for helping another person to grow is love. People who help others to ‘bloom’ are rare in life - yet they help us to achieve and love us all the time. Who are they in your life?Thursday 28 July 2011
  75. 75. Wilkinson tells the story of a couple who used to write something in a notebook about each of their students and then at the end of the month read it with the child concerned - an interesting idea to create confidence and belief in your children.Thursday 28 July 2011
  76. 76. What are your expectations of the people around you - friends, family, church members? Take some time to allow them to be prayerfully readjusted so that you can be a people blossomer.Thursday 28 July 2011
