Preparing Teachers for National Board Certification: A Facilitator's Guide.
Steeves, Kathleen Anderson; Browne, Barbara Cole
This book brings together the expertise of university faculty with that of National Board Certified teachers to offer a blueprint for preparing teachers to achieve National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) certification. The approach enlists the collaboration of university educators and professional staff development personnel. NBPTS certified teachers share portfolio samples and activities in four certification areas. The book outlines a seminar to introduce teachers to the NBPTS process. After the introduction, "Overview of NBPTS and Candidate Support Research" (Kathleen Anderson Steeves and Barbara Cole Browne), the book is divided into three parts. Part 1, "Pre-Candidacy," includes: "The Collaborative Model of Teacher Support" (Barbara Cole Browne and Kathleen Anderson Steeves); and "The Introductory Seminar" (Carol Horn, Carol Sultzman, and Betty Costello). Part 2, "Candidacy," includes: "Early Childhood/Generalist" (Nancy Areglado, Marlene Henriques, and Lisa Holm); "Early Adolescence/Generalist" (Richard Wormeli); "Early Adolescence/English Language Arts" (Faye Wagoner); and "Adolescence/Young Adulthood/Mathematics" (Constance Mosakowsky and Thomas Johnson). Part 3, "Post-Candidacy," includes: "Insights from National Board Certified Teachers" (Barbara Cole Browne); and "The NBPTS and Implications for Education Reform" (Kathleen Anderson Steeves). (SM)
