Striving together : early lessons in achieving collective impact in education by Jeff Edmondson( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2006, Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky had been suffering from many of the same challenges facing metro regions across the country. Despite significant investments in education from the public and private sectors, outcomes were alarming: Kindergarten readiness was below fifty percent, and nearly half of the students in the Cincinnati Public Schools were dropping out before high school graduation. Fortunately, a diverse group of community leaders across sectors was exploring a transformative approach to improving education as a system. This gathering of leaders was the genesis of the StrivePartnership, which served as the inspiration for the theory of collective impact. Together, these partners are building a cradle-to-career civic infrastructure based on the idea that everyone in a community has a stake in the success of every child. This book chronicles the early stages of this ongoing journey from the perspective of the founding chair and director of this work, drawing upon lessons from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky and four other pioneering local partnerships. The experiences captured in these five regions helped lay the foundation for the StriveTogether Cradle to Career Network, a national community of practice on the cutting edge of social change

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication analyzes teacher education policy and practice with respect to teacher recruitment, induction, and continuing professional development with the intention of stimulating dialogue, debate, and collaboration among state agencies, state boards of education, teacher training institutions, legislators, and those involved in teacher certification. Following a foreword and preface, the document is organized into six sections: (1) Recuitment of a More Highly Qualified and Diverse Population into Teaching; (2) Selection and Early Screening into Programs of Teacher Preparation; (3) More Coherent and Potent Programs of Initial Teacher Preparation; (4) Selection into Teaching; (5) Toward Entry-Year Designs as a Necessary Extension of Preservice; and (6) Continuing Professional Development. From 3 to 12 subtopics are discussed in each section, and each section concludes with a comprehensive set of interrelated policy and practice recommendations for studied deliberation among leaders, particularly those in state education agencies who can effect some of the proposed changes. A bibliography containing 77 references is included. (LL)
Case studies of elementary teacher preparation programs in six schools and colleges of education : preliminary study findings by Kenneth R Howey( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six midwest institutions, consisting of two major universities, three large state-supported colleges, and one smaller liberal arts college, were studied in an effort to provide an indepth description of how elementary school teachers are prepared in preservice teacher education programs. Objectives were to provide a clearer picture of: (1) the nature of teacher education curricula; (2) the instructional practices modeled for prospective teachers; (3) the scope, nature, and quality of opportunities teacher candidates have for learning how to teach; and (4) the extent of teacher preparation programs. Findings are discussed in terms of common positive attributes, common concerns, distinctive features of institutions, and attributes of specific programs. Fourteen characteristics are identified that appear to contribute to coherent programs that draw upon practices and policies endorsed by faculty and students across the six institutions. (Mt)
