A chance to make history : what works and what doesn't in providing an excellent education for all by Wendy Kopp( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's failure to educate millions of children is a crisis that strikes at our fundamental ideals and health as a nation. Since 1990, Teach For America has been building a movement to end educational inequity in America. Now its founder, Wendy Kopp, shares the lessons learned from the experiences of more than 25,000 teachers and alumni who have taught and led schools in low-income communities . This book cuts through the noise of today's debates to describe what it will take to provide transformational education--education that changes the academic and life trajectories predicted by children's socioeconomic backgrounds. Kopp's experiences and insights also shine light on why we have not made more progress against educational inequity--how and why the misguided quest for easy answers actually distracts from the hard work--and on what we need to do now to increase the pace of change.--Publisher description
A chance to make history : what works and what doesn't in providing an excellent education for all by Wendy Kopp( )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1990, Teach For America has been building a movement to end educational inequity. Now its founder, Wendy Kopp, shares the lessons learned from the experiences of 25,000 teachers and alumni who have taught in low-income communities during those years--lessons that inspire great optimism. Kopp introduces leaders who, driven by passionate belief in their students' potential, have set out to accomplish what most think impossible at the classroom, school, and system levels. Their examples show that it is possible to provide children facing all the challenges of poverty with an excellent education, and that there is nothing magical about what it takes. What's required are the same ingredients that account for success in any sector: visionary leaders who can attract and develop talented staff, build strong cultures, and continuously improve, and who are willing to do whatever is necessary

The results are better educational outcomes for our nation's children, particularly those who live in low-income communities
One day all children ... : the unlikely triumph of Teach for America by Wendy Kopp( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1989, Wendy Kopp proposed in her undergraduate senior thesis the creation of a new national corps called Teach For America that would enlist her generation's most promising future leaders in the movement to end educational inequity. Teach For America would inspire outstanding recent college graduates of all academic majors and career interests to commit two years to teach in the nation's neediest urban and rural public schools and to become lifelong leaders for expanding educational opportunity. Today, Teach For America fields 3,000 corps members in 22 communities across the country and involves nearly 9,000 alumni who exert continuing leadership in educational and social reform. The title of her lecture is "One day all children ... the unlikely triumph of Teach for America."

A matter of life and death : perceptions of self-efficacy as reported by baccalaureate nursing students and new graduate nurses following an end of life high fidelity stimulation experience by Charys Kunkel( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Abstract: The use of simulation to provide end-of-life (EOL) education is a means to enhance self-efficacy levels among nursing students. The purpose of this exploratory study was to evaluate self-efficacy levels of nursing students and recent graduate nurses following an EOL simulation experience. Data were obtained using the Simulation Effectiveness Tool developed by Medical Education Technologies, Inc.; 72 participants in three groups completed the study. Moderate to strong levels of confidence in providing EOL care were found following the simulation experience; observations by the researcher and unsolicited participant statements supported the findings. Results of the study support EOL simulation as an effective and sustainable teaching modality for enhancing self-efficacy levels when managing EOL events
