Event description

Description

Jump Start is early support for those who have registered as candidates with the National Board and have selected their certificate area. It is the first piece in a continuum of professional learning; one that ideally includes year-long candidate support. Jump Start’s core beliefs and structure dovetail with the philosophy behind the National Board’s Professional Learning Facilitator (PLF) materials. Jump Start is candidate centered, builds a professional learning community, and focuses on the skills, knowledge, dispositions, and strategies needed to be successful in the National Board Certification process. We believe candidates are masters of their own National Board journey. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards holds up Jump Start as the best training out there to prepare NBCT candidates for the process of certification.

Overview

NEA National Board Jump Start is a comprehensive seminar designed to provide National Board candidates important information about the certification process, time to examine component and Assessment Center requirements, the opportunity to plan how to meet requirements, and time to collaborate, gather resources and information needed to pursue certification — all in a supportive, constructive, and collegial environment.

Foundations

Body of Knowledge: Delve into the National Board's essential ideas about what teachers should know and be able to do: Five Core Propositions, Architecture of Accomplished Teaching and National Board Content area standards, and connect these ideas to your teaching practice.

Component 1

Content Knowledge: Learn what is expected for this component and strategies to identify possible assessment center exercise items. In this academy, you will begin to determine your content knowledge strengths and gaps, identify resources and develop a study plan.

Component 2

Differentiation in Instruction: Determine what is expected for this component using National Board content area component directions, standards and scoring rubrics and identify resources for developing written commentary.

Component 3

Teaching Practice and Learning Environment: This academy introduces candidates to the three focus areas of Component 3: learning environment, student engagement, and sequence of instruction. Candidates will chart the requirements of Component 3, learn how to navigate the component directions, and discuss ways to capture accomplished practice in video evidence.

Component 4

Effective and Reflective Practitioner: Dig into component directions, standards, and scoring rubrics to understand what candidates must do in this component. Learn resources for gaining data and assessment literacy skills.

Foundations in Practice

Foundations in Practice for Component 2, 3 and 4: Collaborate with other candidates to co-construct a menu of effective strategies for differentiation and student work analysis, for data analysis and assessment, for dynamic engagement,for developing and for instructional practices to support your development of Components 2, 3 and 4.
