National Board Home Stretch - Westside (Federal Way)
Participants eligible to attend: 2019-20 candidates working on their National Board Certification for submission in Spring 2020
Small like-certificate groups meet with one NBCT Facilitator to read and provide standards-based feedback on the written commentary for Components 2, 3, or 4 using a protocol specially designed for use at WEA Home Stretch events.
In full-day events, candidates get a second round of feedback on Component 2, 3, or 4 written commentary, OR, they can opt to get support with Component 1 (Assessment Center) Preparation. In a small like-certificate group, candidates explore the selected response items, the constructed response exercises, and released items.
Supported Work Groups: Dedicated work time with available NBCTs who answer questions and provide support. In the morning sessions, our goal is to match candidates in the same certificate area for feedback groups. In the afternoon, in some cases that's not possible and we will match candidates in similar certificate areas. Occasionally, we are not able to find close certificate-match feedback groups. In those situations, we offer registrants the opportunity to refine their responses in a supported work environment with NBCT trainers or the option of a full refund if they would rather not participate in a mixed certificate group.
Full-day and half-day sessions will be offered. The full-day session is from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and the half-day session will be offered in the morning from 9 a.m. to noon and in the afternoon from 12:30-3:30 p.m.
Sign up by 5 p.m. Jan. 31, 2020 and get a discount on the registration fee: $40 for half day and $80 for full day. Registration fees after 5 p.m. Jan. 31 will be $50 for half day and $100 for full day.
Registration closes at 5 p.m. March 8.
