The Moment of Lift

release date: Apr 25, 2019
The Moment of Lift
''We need this message more than ever'' – Malala Yousafzai Hard-hitting and uplifting true stories of the women around the world facing extreme gender inequality who, when the wider community supports them to challenge the status quo, improve life for the whole of society. A Sunday Times bestselling debut from Melinda Gates, The Moment of Lift is a timely and necessary call to action for women''s empowerment. The right to: Spend your own money. Go to school. Earn an income. Access contraceptives. Work outside the home. Walk outside the home. Choose whom to marry. Get a loan. Start a business. Own property. Divorce a husband. See a doctor. Drive a car. All of these rights are denied to women in some parts of the world. ''How can we summon a moment of lift for human beings – and especially for women? Because when you lift up women, you lift up humanity.'' In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares the stories of the inspiring people she’s met during her work and travels around the world and the lessons she’s learned from them. As she writes in the introduction, “That is why I had to write this book – to share the stories of people who have given focus and urgency to my life. I want all of us to see ways we can lift women up where we live.” Melinda’s unforgettable narrative is backed by startling data as she presents the issues that most need our attention – from child marriage to lack of access to contraceptives to gender inequity in the workplace. And, for the first time, she writes about her personal life and the road to equality in her own marriage. Throughout, she shows how there has never been more opportunity to change the world – and ourselves. When we lift others up, they lift us up, too.

Report of the Sixth Meeting of the International Coordinating Group of the World Health Organization and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Project on Eliminating Human and Dog Rabies, Durban, South Africa, 22-24 September 2014
"The sixth meeting of the International Coordinating Group (ICG) of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) project on eliminating human and dog rabies was held in Durban, South Africa, on 22-24 September 2014. Its purpose was to determine the way forward as the projects draw to a conclusion, with focus on their sustainability, expansion into other geographies and the dissemination of results and information to catalyse progress beyond the project sites. Rabies elimination is possible and requires working across different sectors."--Page 1

Ensuring Fair and Reliable Measures of Effective Teaching

release date: Jan 01, 2013
Ensuring Fair and Reliable Measures of Effective Teaching
States and districts have launched unprecedented efforts in recent years to build new feedback and evaluation systems that support teacher growth and development. These systems depend on trustworthy information about teaching effectiveness--information that recognizes the complexity of teaching and is trusted by both teachers and administrators. To that end, the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project set out three years ago to investigate how a set of measures could identify effective teaching fairly and reliably. With the help of 3,000 teacher volunteers along with scores of academic and organizational partners, the researchers have studied, among other measures: (1) Classroom observation instruments; (2) Student Perception surveys; and (3) Student achievement gains. This final brief from the MET project''s three-year study highlights new analyses that extend and deepen the insights from the researchers'' previous work. These studies address three fundamental questions that face practitioners and policymakers engaged in creating teacher support and evaluation systems. (Contains 5 figures, 1 table, and 10 endnotes.).

Validation Engine for Observational Protocols. Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) Project

Validation Engine for Observational Protocols. Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) Project
In the fall of 2009, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation launched the two-year Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project to rigorously develop and test multiple measures of teacher effectiveness. As part of the project, partners from more than a dozen reputable academic, non-profit and for-profit organizations collected and analyzed data from the 2009-10 and 2010-11 school years from over 3,000 teacher volunteers and their classrooms across Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Dallas Independent School District, Denver Public Schools, Hillsborough County Public Schools, Memphis City Schools, and the New York City Department of Education. Teachers and classrooms in Pittsburgh Public Schools also participated in the project by helping researchers with early-stage development and testing of the effectiveness measures before they were tested in the other MET project districts. This paper seeks to define and explain how classroom observations and teacher reflections were used to develop the "validation engine" for reviewing other observational protocols using four components: a secure video viewer; a score sheet template; an analytic engine; and an automated report generator. Results will provide information on individual indicators that can be used to revise the expectation for evidence, or possibly eliminate the indicator if it is not correlated with improvement in student achievement. Multiple observation protocols can be tested and retested regularly to demonstrate validity.
