Description:You are about to embark on a professional development journey.  The process toward National Board Certification will renew your professional spirit by challenging you to reflect on your own teaching.  Based on high standards for what accomplished teachers know and do, the National Board Certification portfolio and assessment gauges your mastery and growth as an accomplished teacher and a reflective practitioner.
Pre-requisites: This is an introductory course for teachers, technology specialists, curriculum specialists, professional development specialists, or other school personnel.  Participants are expected to have regular access to computers.  In addition, participants should be proficient with using email, browsing the Internet, and navigating to computer files.
Objectives: NBPTS standards are based on the Five Core Propositions the foundation of what all accomplished teachers should know and be able to do and provide a common frame of reference for educators to link teaching standards to actual teacher practice in the classroom.  Although the standards for each certification area are specific to that area, they rest on a fundamental philosophical foundation expressed in the NBPTS policy statement What Accomplished Teachers Should Know and Be Able To Do.  That statement identifies the Five Core Propositions.
