#41: What Is the Conscious Competence Ladder, and Why You Need to Know About It for Learning, Behavior, and Your Own Professional Development.
One of the things that used to really grind my gears as a teacher was when I was trying to teach a new skill to students, whether it be an analytical response or a piece of creative writing, and they would say something like the following: “I know how to do this already” “This is baby work, I did it in Year 3”, Or the worst one… “Why do I have to learn English, I already speak the language!!” Of course as a teacher I COULD spend a chunk of the lesson explaining until I am blue in the face about how there is a progression of skills, how English as a subject permeates everything we do, how the writing they did in Year 3 is not the writing I am expecting of them. And I did. Often. Now? I understand that all of us, human beings in general, simply don’t know, what we don’t know!! So what do I do instead? I teach them about the conscious competence ladder (not necessarily using that lingo). Listen in to this week’s podcast as I go over what the Conscious Competence Ladder is, and why it is such a valuable theory to support us in teaching our students, and applying in our own practice.
