Editorial Reviews

Anne Hanson
What could be more useful to potential National Board candidates than a how-to book on the process created by teachers for teachers? Kudos to Bobbie Faulkner for harnessing her experience as a National Board-Certified teacher and facilitator. Her book on the NB process includes practical tips that will help teachers undertaking one of the most rewarding professional development experiences of their careers.
Kris Beaver
I'm reading this past bedtime, and I don't want to put the book down! I would have benefited from such organized information when I was going through National Board Certification. Bobbie Faulkner's wealth of experience as an NBPTS mentor shines through each chapter. Her book will help so many candidates with its wisdom and friendly, practical writing style. I highly recommend WHAT WORKS! to any ECGen candidate.
Kelly Mueller
WHAT WORKS! is a clear, concise, and convincing resource for candidates pursuing National Board Certification. The sections, 'What Works' and 'Here's Why It Works,' lift the mysterious fog of the process as Faulkner clearly explains how to provide the required evidence of the standards. I strongly encourage both candidates and candidate support providers to make use of this straightforward, readable, ethical guide.
Marina Rodriguez
'Writing for the National Board' and 'Preparing the Video Entries' are my favorite chapters. The information is so clear for the candidate to follow. I wish I had had this book available when I was a candidate!
Alicia Majercin
WHAT WORKS! is absolutely readable and will be incredibly useful to candidates. The 'Writing Styles' section is great. I love the examples and explanations. The 'What Works' and 'Here's Why' features really explain the information clearly.
