Overview

Becoming a National Board Certified Teacher is the highest achievement in the teaching profession. It also has to be one of the most rewarding.

While there are numerous guides to help NBPTS candidates prepare portfolios, candidates will find limited affordable published assistance which actually allows organization, and allows practice of what the process entails. "So, You Want to Become a National Board Certified Teacher: Wrokbook & Evidence Manual" was written to address just such a need.

"So, You Want to Become a National Board Certified Teacher: Workbook & Evidence Manual" is designed to be used alongside the author's national bestselling companion guide: "So, You Want to Become a National Board Certified Teacher?". This workbook is designed to be used either individually, or in a group workshop setting, and contains numerous useable worktables containing the vital elements of NBPTS writing. The workbook is written in a casual, conversational manner, unlike other pedantic tomes which may only serve to confuse the busy candidate.

Using this workbook, the candidate will:

  • dissect, analyze, and apply the NBPTS Core Propositions to their own classroom
  • analyze and utilize the well-researched characteristics of Accomplished Teaching
  • practice the three writing forms required for NBPTS portfolios
  • annotate practice writing samples for accomplished writing features the NBPTS wants to see
  • help structure effective lesson plans and Documented Accomplishment models based on NBPTS guidelines
  • utilize practice tests to assess knowlege of entry requirements

Everything a candidate will need to be guided through the certification process is featured in this book.

    "You'll work your tail off with the writing analyses, but it's worth it!"

    I have waited (almost too late!) for this workbook! It is an AFFORDABLE (did I mention affordable?) workbook, and the companion guide to author's handbook for candidates. It is also better.

    The writing evaluations are wonderful and the accomplished teacher chapter is helpful. You'll (I'll) work your (my) tail off with all the analysis samples, but this is exactly what I need. User-friendly, and affordable. The best in the author's apple series! Hope I pass.

    "The most affordable of the NBPTS workbooks, and packed with reminder charts"

    Since there aren't many workbooks for NBPTS candidates, I didn't have a lot to choose from to get some TLC in pursuit of my certification. I found this one by way of a friend who heard the author speak in Arkansas and recommended it.

    It is easy to follow, and provides a ton of suggestions in checklist form. The chapter on Accomplished Teaching is the best. Gosh, there's a lot to think about here.

    We'll see if I pass, but if I don't I can't say I didn't have a step-by-step handholding all the way. Well worth the price if you take the time to utilize all the information.
