Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a unique volume for facilitators who provide assistance for teachers preparing for the National Board. It is a realistic guide for anyone who seeks to improve the support for teachers as they advance through the steps of National Board preparation." —Peggy Blackwell, PhD, Department of Education, University of New Mexico

"This guide brings together the expertise of university faculty with that of National Board Certified Teachers. For facilitators, the book offers an effective model and specific strategies to assist with preparing others for NBPTS assessments. For potential or current candidates, the text is a rich source of insight and support from teachers who have been through the certification process successfully." —Barbara Laws, EdD, Assistant Principal, Mary Calcott Elementary School, Norfolk Public Schools, Norfolk, VA

"This long-awaited professional development tool will significantly contribute to the most important school reform effort the teaching profession has undergone. It will forge partnerships between those who want to assist and those who want assistance in demonstrating highly accomplished teaching. Candidates enrolled in workshops that use this guide will exponentially enhance their chances of becoming National Board Certified Teachers. And for university teacher education programs that have changed the manner in which they prepare teachers to teach in the year 2000 and beyond, including this book as a text or resource is a 'must.'" —Harriet Hunter-Boykin, EdD, Former NBPTS Board Member
