This two-day institute is designed for teachers seeking National Board Certification in the 2018–2019 school year. Completion of a Pre-Candidacy class and a National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Candidate ID Number are prerequisites for this institute. Participation at this event is required for those teachers seeking funding assistance from the Arizona K12 Center to pursue National Board Certification.

Seeking National Board Certification is a rigorous, but worthwhile process. As you begin your National Board journey, you will undoubtedly have questions. Attending this opportunity will give you the chance to work with an outstanding group of National Board Certified Teachers. You will delve deeply into the NBPTS standards to gain a deeper understanding of the process, while working with educators from around the state who are pursuing Board certification.

The learning sessions will provide you the time and resources you need to feel confident and prepared to begin your candidacy. During portions of this event, you will be provided with tips and strategies for analyzing student work, as well as ideas for how to better utilize the important National Board documents. We will also take a look at the roles writing and technology play in the process. In addition, we will provide recommendations about how to best avoid potential pitfalls, as well as information about what to expect during both your Assessment Center and videotaping experiences.

Participants will gain:

  • A deeper understanding of the National Board Standards, the Architecture of Accomplished Teacher, Five Core Propositions, and the overall certification process.
  • A deeper understanding of the content and requirements of the NBPTS Portfolio components.
  • A plan for successful completion of the components.
  • Exploration of content that will be measured during the Assessment Center exercises.
  • Analysis of content and discourse needed for videotaping one’s practice.
  • Analysis of the types of evidence needed in written commentary.
