29 First Component Keep in mind that for each PGE, you must:
Provide a context that explains the need you were meeting (students, the professional community, and/or self) Explain how the PGE demonstrates a response to the identified need August 2001

30 Think, Pair, Share Think of four potential PGEs for yourself.
Get four different colors of paper to represent each of your PGEs and label them. Put each post-it you wrote at the beginning of the session on the PGE the activity best supports. Discuss your choices with a partner. Do you have activities/lessons/units that support the PGEs you hope to write about? August 2001

31 Second Component Choose one PGE and show its application in your classroom One 10-minute, unedited, date-stamped videotape that may be segmented into 3 parts. Must be made during the eighth or ninth year of your NBPTS certification 4 pages of written commentary August 2001
