As I learnt in Graduate Module 1, there are four stages in skill development, and this has particular relevance to teachers’ use of behaviour management strategies.
I am currently seeking permission to reproduce a definition of this model from the MindTools website. Until then, please visit this link for a full definition.
The Four Stages
Level 1 – Unconscious Incompetence
(You Don’t Know that You Don’t Know)
Level 2 – Conscious Incompetence
(You Know that You Don’t Know)
Level 3 – Conscious Competence
(You Know that You Know)
Level 4 – Unconscious Competence
(You Don’t Know that You Know – It Just Seems Easy!)
