How teacher turnover harms student achievement - 33 views

  •  
    new study with some interesting findings. the trouble is always, putting all these study/findings into our head and synthesizing it into some kind of workable framework. It is never just one thing that impacts student achievement.
  •  
    I am really confused by this abstract- it calls the assumption into question but then seems to assert the very same assumption??? Researchers and policymakers often assume that teacher turnover harms student achievement, but recent evidence calls into question this assumption. Using a unique identification strategy that employs grade-level turnover and two classes of fixed-effects models, this study estimates the effects of teacher turnover on over 600,000 New York City 4th and 5th grade student observations over 5 years. The results indicate that students in grade-levels with higher turnover score lower in both ELA and math and that this effect is particularly strong in schools with more low-performing and black students. Moreover, the results suggest that there is a disruptive effect of turnover beyond changing the composition in teacher quality.

Educational Leadership:Reading Comprehension:Making Sense of Online Text - 33 views

  •  
    I worked with Julie Curio a few years ago for MA New Literacies. I think it is so important to start teaching students these new skill to comprehend text and to efficiently search a topic. However, I teach graduate level courses and I do these exercises with teachers and many (regardless of age) do not know these strategies. States need to do more PD to bring administrators and teachers up to par so we can make sure our students are ready for whatever comes their way. Thanks, ~Katy
