A Chance to Make History Free read ✓ 0 Since 1990 Teach For America has been building a movement to end educational ineuity in America Now its founder Wendy Kopp shares the lessons learned from the experiences of than 25000 teachers and alumni who have taught and led schools in low income communities during those years A Chance to Make History cuts through the noise of today's debates to describe precisely what it will take to provide transformational education education that changes the academic and life trajectories predicted by children's socioeconomic backgrounds Sharing her experiences in some of the country's. I read this book as part of my pre institute work as a 2013 TFA corps member I know opinions about TFA are super polarized and as a new comer to the organization I am working hard to tip toe carefully among all those opinions I don t know enough yet to say what is true What I do know is that personally I m not trying to use under served children or communities as a stepping stone in my career in law or business or medicine as is often a criticism of TFA corps members I don t have a clear vision for my own future but tentatively I think that I would like to stay at the school I m placed at for at least five years if I feel that I am useful to the community and that from there I may want to get involved in education administration to try to effect broad positive change in the system I am not working under the assumption that as a first year teacher I will be a better teacher than those who have decades of experience in fact I m pretty sure that at first I won t even be a good teacher at all But I do know that my constant presence in the classroom will be better for my students than a string of long term substitutes which is what TFA is meant to replace not veteran teachers I will strive every day to be the kind of transformational teacher that Wendy Kopp describes in this book That being said this was an interesting book to read I think she makes a case for a kind of broad scale no excuses education reform that doesn t rely on any one silver bullet as she calls it not even TFA I found myself throughout wondering what SPECIFICALLY makes a transformational teacher but I m sure that that is explained in detail in Teaching As Leadership the other TFA pre institute book which I am beginning now This book served as my March non fiction challenge book
