PROMISING PRACTICE: MAKE THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE WITH A THEORY OF CHANGE
by Andrew Plemmons Pratt
Whether you are creating a new program, launching a new school, or transforming an existing school, the CityBridge Incubator helps teams design and scale innovative and equity-centered education solutions. But to solve a problem, it is important to know what you are currently doing, and most importantly, why. One powerful tool we use in Design Fellowship to help educators and entrepreneurs achieve this is a theory of change.
For today’s promising practice, I’ll be illustrating the process of developing a theory of change through the experience of Washington Yu Ying, a Chinese-immersion elementary school in Washington, DC’s Ward 5.
This month, we chatted with Rennie M. Taylor, Assistant Principal at Stuart-Hobson Middle School about his journey with CityBridge. He also shares valuable advice for educators and entrepreneurs interested in innovating for equity.
