    On...Transformed, Inclusive Schools: A Framework to Guide Fundamental Change in Urban Schools

    1/24/08 - Diane L. Ferguson, Kozeski, Elizabeth B., Smith, Anne, Equity Alliance at ASU

    Multicultural education is not merely a set of skills and procedures learned at one point in time and applied over and over again. It is a process through which educators and other service providers learn to interpret and adapt to their personal encounters with one another. Through multicultural education, teachers and students become culturally responsive and competent, creating new pathways for communication and knowledge sharing (Liston & Zeichner, 1996).

    Understanding English Language Learners' Needs and the Language Acquisition Process

    1/10/09 - Alicja Rieger, Ewa McGrail, Equity Alliance at ASU

    This OnPoint tackles the complexity of English language learners’ needs from our point of view. We are native Polish-speaking teacher educators who use our own experiences and knowledge as English language learners in methods courses that we teach in teacher education programs in the United States. We both were born and raised in Poland, and share our passion for our native language and culture with our students, who are either already practicing public school teachers or in the process of...

  • How Large an Effect Can We Expect from School Reforms?

    1/1/08 - Konstantopoulos, Spyros, Hedges, Larry V.

    Background/Context: Determining the effectiveness of reform strategies is a major part of the current and future educational research agenda. Effects of education reforms will be evaluated largely quantitatively, and an important aspect of this work will be judging how well reform strategies work. The rhetoric of contemporary school reform suggests two somewhat different solutions to the problem of the interpretive frame. One solution is derived from the idea that the goal of school reform...

  • A Framework for Advancing Career and Teachnical Education: Recommendations for the Reauthorization of the Carl D. Perkins Act

    1/1/12 - Alliance for Excellent Education

    The nation’s economy is only as strong as the educational foundation that supports it. Economic success in the twenty-first century requires a labor force capable of demonstrating an advanced level of both knowledge and skill. To be a true engine of growth, the nation’s education system must be aligned with these demands. This is why the reauthorization of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Educational Improvement Act of 2006 (Perkins), the nation’s largest federal investment...

    Adding value to discussions about value-added: A new framework for talking about teacher effectiveness

    1/16/09 - Raegen Miller

    "Past initiatives to improve teacher quality offer two general lessons. First, simplistic responses—across-the-board raises, more stringent licensure requirements, mandated professional development—are extremely expensive, utterly ineffective, or both. Only policies that tightly link incentives to desired results stand a chance of being effective and affordable. Clearly, making such links requires a robust approach to assessing teachers’ impact on outcomes of interest, especially...

  • Calculus as a Catalyst: The Transformation of an Inner-City High School in Boston

    1/1/05 - Werkema, Rachel Deyette, Case, Robert

    Disparities in curricular offerings between poor, inner-city schools and their more affluent counterparts leave urban students at a disadvantage in terms of preparation for higher education and future job opportunities. Introducing more rigorous academic coursework into traditionally low-performing schools is one way to close this gap; however, the addition of advanced classes is only part of moving a school to a higher level of academic performance. Using a framework developed by Oakes, we...

  • Closing Achievement Gaps: Roles and Tasks of Elementary School Counselors

    1/1/08 - Trusty, Jerry, Mellin, Elizabeth A., Herbert, James T.

    Achievement gaps among racial-ethnic and socioeconomic status groups are an enduring, pervasive, and multifaceted phenomenon. Therefore, efforts aimed at understanding and addressing these gaps must be developmentally and environmentally broad, involving numerous school counselor roles and tasks, including leadership, advocacy, collaboration, and strategic interventions. In this article, we first document achievement gap trends and then provide a framework for understanding and sequencing...

  • Elementary School Counselors and Teachers: Collaborators for Higher Student Achievement

    1/1/08 - Sink, Christopher A.

    In this article I contend that elementary school teachers need to work more closely with school counselors to enhance student learning and academic performance and to narrow the achievement gap among student groups. Research showing the influence that counselors can exert on the educational process is summarized. Using the American School Counselor Association's organization framework for structuring counseling and guidance programs, I also illustrate where the educative roles of teachers...
