10 Years of IMPACT Teacher Residency Program – New XChange Issue

It is time to actualize the power of teacher residencies to address our most pervasive educator recruitment, preparation, and retention challenges. UCLA Center X is thrilled to launch the Spring 2022 issue of XCHANGE, 10 Years of IMPACT: Inspiring Minds through a Professional Alliance of Community Teachers. In this issue you will find engaging stories, artifacts and research that bring to life the work and promise of teacher residencies.  In the xPress Papers, we have gathered all the publications and conference presentations that were conducted during the 10 years of IMPACT. The Educator Workroom includes a collection of key resources and tools created by IMPACT faculty and staff that can be used and/or adapted to other local contexts.  And finally, in the STEM Academy Case Study, we share the story of school-university partnership’s efforts to prepare and sustain social justice educators told from the perspectives of a teacher, a principal, and a university clinical faculty member.  We hope this issue will spark dialogue, inform action, and be a useful resource for advancing rigorous, justice-minded teacher residency programs.
