You Can Now Buy the Book in Print!
Tuesday, June 5, 2018 by Joetta M. Schneider, NBCT

 

Some people just like printed books, and maybe even moreso with workbooks.  So now you can get the printed workbook on Amazon!  If you’d like to see the Big Picture view of the certification process, this book will help you. It includes the updated information from all our downloadable PDFs and the access codes for the videos that go with them.  as well as the popular, “Explanation of Terms” section, that could be really useful.  

So, yes, finally finished the book after getting 28 candidates through the cohort this year.  That is our total number; not all of them have completed all four components yet.  But so exciting for NBCT Nerds like us!  We have around 10 teachers who will find out in December if they’ve achieved or if they need to re-do a component.  Our advice to them is to assume they will want to retake a component, and to make that general statement to their friends and family who ask.

I think a good blanket statement is, “It’s a one to three year process.”  Not that they can’t do it in a year and I am certainly hoping all of them do… but the NBPTS was still making changes to the process this year.  Not to mention that the National Board process is truly a growth process and not a checklist.

Thanks for reading and sharing.
