Theories That Inform Content Coaching:
- The incremental theory of intelligence, and the effort-based principles of learning derived from this theory.
- Knowledge-based constructivism, which builds on the work of Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky.
- Systems theory, which requires us to see the whole system as a living organism in which the interactions of the players are interdependent, rather than seeing the system as a machine with separate, independent parts.
- That a Growth Mindset, as defined in the work of Carol Dweck, is essential for students and adults to learn effectively.
