Improving teaching effectiveness : implementation : the Intensive Partnerships for Effective Teaching through 2013-2014 by Brian M Stecher( )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To improve the U.S. education system through more-effective classroom teaching, in school year 2009--2010, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced the Intensive Partnership for Effective Teaching sites. The Intensive Partnerships Initiative is based on the premise that efforts to improve instruction can benefit from high-quality measures of teaching effectiveness. The initiative seeks to determine whether a school can implement a high-quality measure of teaching effectiveness and use it to support and manage teachers in ways that improve student outcomes. This approach is consistent with broader national trends in which performance-based teacher evaluation is increasingly being mandated at state and local levels. To test the theory in practice, the foundation sought partnership sites. It selected three school districts -- Hillsborough County Public Schools in Florida, Shelby County Schools in Tennessee, and Pittsburgh Public Schools in Pennsylvania. The foundation also selected four charter management organizations -- Alliance College-Ready Public Schools, Aspire Public Schools, Green Dot Public Schools, and the Partnerships to Uplift Communities, all in California. To evaluate Intensive Partnership implementation, researchers from the RAND Corporation and the American Institutes for Research interviewed annually central-office staff at each site and teachers and other staff in a sample of schools for each site. They also used data from annual teacher and school-leader surveys and documents that the sites and the foundation provided. This report summarizes the implementation status of key reform elements at each site when the Intensive Partnerships initiative launched and five years later in the spring of 2014"--
Competency-based education in three pilot programs : examining implementation and outcomes by Jennifer L Steele( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2011, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation created the Project Mastery grant program to support competency-based education initiatives in large school systems that serve a high proportion of disadvantaged youth. Competency-based education meets students where they are academically, provides students with opportunities for choice, and awards credit for evidence of learning, not for the time students spend studying a subject. The Foundation asked RAND to evaluate these efforts in terms of implementation, students' experiences, and student performance. This report presents final results from that evaluation, offering an overview of competency-based education and the Project Mastery grant projects and describing the implementation of competency-based educational features under each project. The report concludes with six lessons for policy, partnerships, and practice."--"Abstract" on web page

AIDS Sutra : untold stories from India by A Chauduri( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"India is home to almost three million HIV cases, but AIDS is still stigmatized and shrouded in denial. It is stigma that leads to discrimination against HIV positive people in hospitals, schools, and even among families. Most importantly stigma fuels the belief that HIV is not our disease, but a disease of the other." "In this anthology some of India's best-known writers go on the road to tell the human stories behind the Indian epidemic and get to know this other: Kiran Desai travels to the coast of Andhra Pradesh, where the sex workers are considered the most desirable; Salman Rushdie meets members of Mumbai's transgender community; William Dalrymple encounters the devadasis, women who have been "married" to a temple goddess and thus are deemed acceptable for transactional sex. These writers travel the country to talk to housewives, vigilantes, gay men living double lives, police, and sex workers. Together their stories make up a complex - and gripping - picture of AIDS in India: who it's affecting, how, and why. Eye-opening, hard-hitting, and moving, AIDS Sutra presents a side of India rarely seen before."--BOOK JACKET

Improving teaching effectiveness : access to effective teaching : the Intensive Partnerships for Effective Teaching through 2013-2014 by Matthew D Baird( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As part of its effective-teaching initiative, Intensive Partnerships for Effective Teaching, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has partnered with three urban school districts across the United States and a group of four charter management organizations to undertake a set of strategic human-capital reforms. The reforms are intended to improve teachers' overall effectiveness and to ensure that low-income minority (LIM) students have access to highly effective teachers. Lack of access to effective teaching has been identified as a possible contributor to the well-documented achievement gap between LIM students and their more-advantaged peers. This report attends to the distribution of effective teachers within and across schools in the Intensive Partnership sites. The authors first examine the trends in the distribution of effective teachers between LIM students and other students. They also examine whether any of a variety of mechanisms can explain changes in LIM students' access to effective teaching. These mechanisms include increasing the percentage of LIM students whom effective teachers teach, increasing the effectiveness of teachers with large percentages of LIM students, and replacing less effective teachers of LIM students with more-effective teachers."--
