Digging into the whole National Certification process has it's place in the overwhelmingness (not really a word) of my current life. :) So I'm looking for any help that I can find! Google searches like, "contributions to student learning, national board certification" have been helpful, as well as a book that finally came in at Borders, called So, You Want to Become a National Board Certified Teacher? by Jerry Parks.
In one of my searches I was reminded of something I'd read in one of my folders that I've created with all the information from the NB people…it's a great tip to remember and I'd like to put it into practice a little here on the blogosphere.
The big tip of the day is this: There are 3 different types of writing that I will have to extend in my many, but concise pages of explanation: descriptive, analytical and reflective. Also explained as…what, so what, and now what?
Fantastically enough, I could probably find my own examples of each type of writing somewhere in my world.
When you think of me, please take a moment to intercede for my health, sanity, and well-being as I journey through this process. Thanks. 🙂
