August First Component Consider the language of the rubric when choosing the four PGEs. addresses (identified) needs in a variety of rich and powerful contexts candidate has provided evidence of professional growth that has evolved… and Is varied and/or multifaceted
August First Component Consider the scoring criteria requiring that a candidate address the following: Certificate-specific content to remain current Pedagogical skills to remain current Acquisition of and/or effective and appropriate use of technology Interaction with colleagues, other professional groups, parents, and/or the community that has enhanced your professional growth
August 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 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 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 Second Component The lesson must be in the same certificate area as original certification You must show how you ensure equity of access and promote appreciation for diversity among the students. You must explain the impact on student learning. You must explain how your video reflects your certificate-specific content knowledge.

August Reflection 3 pages of written commentary that analyzes the relationship between your practice and student learning
August Additional Tips Make back-up copies of everything including original videos. Work with back-up copies of video recordings until you are sure which segments you want to use. Immediately make back-ups of your edited versions. Look for interesting ways to make double use of your evidences for Component 1. (For example, a rubric used to show evidence of appropriate technology experiences in Component 1 can be shown in use in Component 2.)
August Holistic Scoring The document is scored as one unit. You will receive a score of renewed or not renewed.
