National Board Home Stretch
Participants eligible to attend: 2021-22 candidates working on their National Board Certification for submission in Spring 2022
WEA's National Board Home Stretch takes place just before the National Board portfolio is due, when candidates are getting ready to focus their attention on final revisions.
At Home Stretch, 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 specially designed protocol. We do our best to have NBCTs in the same certificate area as candidates; however, that’s not always possible based on registration numbers and facilitator availability.
During the morning part of the agenda, candidates receive feedback on Component 2, 3 or 4 written commentary. In the afternoon segment, they can opt for feedback on a second component or testing center (Component 1) preparation.
Supported Work Groups: Dedicated work time is also an option, staffed by NBCTs to answer questions and provide support.
