This open access book presents a comparative study on how large-scale professional development programs for teachers are designed and implemented. Around the world, governments and educators are recognizing the need to educate students in a broad range of higher order cognitive skills and socio-emotional competencies, and providing effective opportunities for teachers to develop the expertise needed to teach these skills is a crucial aspect of effective implementation of curricula which include those goals. This study examines how large-scale efforts to empower teachers for deeper instruction have been designed, how they have been implemented, and their outcomes. To do so, it investigates six programs from England, Colombia, Mexico, India, and the United States. Though all six are intended to broaden and deepen students' curricular aspirations, each takes this expansion of curricular goals in a different direction. The ambitious education reforms studied here explicitly focus on building teachers' capacity to teach on a broader set of goals. Through a discerning analysis of program documents, evaluations, and interviews with senior leaders and participants in the programs, the book identifies the various theories of action used in these programs, examines how they were implemented, and discusses what they achieved. As such, it offers an indispensable resource for education leaders interested in designing and implementing professional development programs for teachers that are aligned with ambitious instructional goals.

This book calls for moving teachers to the center of decision-making in public schools. It honors teaching and teachers by redefining the role in a democratically organized professional setting. While modern reform employs the language of school restructuring, genuine change that will enhance the status of teachers is not at the top of the agenda. This book recognizes that for authentic empowerment to materialize, the nature of the teaching role must significantly change. At the same time, teacher preparation will also have to be overhauled in order to equip teachers with all that a new status demands. It also proposes that the role of the principal must be dramatically transformed and recommends returning principals to the teaching function as part of their task and places them in greater accountability to the professional teaching staff itself. The book presents a hopeful message that is grounded in a progressive perspective our conservative epoch demands.

What sets this text apart are the first-person accounts of teachers' experiences with action research as examples of profound possibilities for professional growth.

This book reframes questions about student diversity by probing the extent to which society serves the interests of all, and by examining the empowerment of members of oppressed groups to direct social change. It examines the empowerment of children who are members of oppressed racial groups, lower class, and female, based on the ideas of multicultural education. A series of ethnographic studies illustrates how such young people view their world, their power to affect it in their own interests, and their response to what is usually a growing sense of powerlessness as they mature. The authors also conceptualize contributions of multicultural education to empowering young people, and report investigations of multicultural education projects educators have used for student empowerment. Issues in teacher education are also discussed.

EMPOWER Your Students: Tools to Inspire a Meaningful School Experience, Grades 6¿12 by Lauren Porosoff and Jonathan Weinstein addresses, head on, the topic of values. Here, middle and high school teachers uncover ways students can make school a source of meaning. With their warm, engaging writing, Porosoff and Weinstein detail activities and strategies that encourage 21st century soft skills, including empathy, self-direction, and accountability. The book guides grades 6¿12 teachers as they help students identify how they want to conduct themselves, limit avoidance behaviors, and connect values, school experiences, and actions. When readers help students discover their values, they empower students to learn and take action in a values-consistent way; and when readers empower their students by doing what best works for them in the classroom, they empower themselves as well.

Democratic Science Teaching Building The Expertise To Empower Low Income Minority Youth In Science

Democratic science pedagogy has the potential to shape learning outcomes and science engagement by taking on directly issues of pedagogy, learning, and social justice. In this text we provide a framework for democratic science teaching in order to interrogate the purposes and goals of science education in classrooms globally, as well as to call attention to ways of being in the classroom that position teachers and students as important and powerful participants in their own learning and as change-agents of a larger global society. We develop three core conceptual tools for democratic science teaching, that together frame ways of thinking and being in classrooms that work towards a more just world: Voice, Authority, and Critical Science Literacy. Each conceptual tool is developed in the introductory chapters then taken up in different pedagogical and analytic ways in the chapters that span the text. The chapters present researcher, teacher, and student centered lenses for investigating democratic science education and reflect elementary through high school education, both in school and out of school, in the US and globally.

Courts argues that while by society's standards many people can read well, they are unable to create meaning from the world of oral and written language. His theory derives from psycho- and sociolinguistics, cognitive psychology, philosophy, literary criticism, and "whole language" theory. Courts criticizes programmed activities, texts, and workbooks--challenging the control that commercial textbook publishers and test-makers exert on education. He shuns overemphasis on methods, and offers an alternative approach firmly grounded in theory and aimed at empowering teachers and students.

As principals, we push ourselves to learn, grow, and innovate because our role remains in a state of flux. When it comes to leadership, though, it’s imperative that we focus on growing the most important resource in the school—our teachers. Igniting Teacher Leadership is written for busy school leaders who want to foster learning and growth not only for students but also for teachers. Effective leadership is vital in creating a culture of collaboration, modeling continuous improvement, and developing enhanced engagement throughout the building. In short, effective leadership leads to better teachers, who in turn design more powerful learning experiences, empower students, and create better schools. Experienced school leader and author William Sterrett offers strategies and examples for fostering teacher leadership, facilitating professional learning, and promoting “growing habits” to help translate key points into practical action steps. Sterrett has also written Insights Into Action: Successful School Leaders Share What Works and Short on Time: How do I make time to lead and learn as a principal?
