My Trip to D.C.: Speaking Up for Foreign Aid and the Common Core

Posted on 03/19/2014 by Bill Gates

Last week, if I wanted a reminder that I was in Washington, D.C., and not Seattle, all I had to do was look at the weather forecast. The temperature was in the 60s when I arrived Wednesday morning, dipped into the 20s on Thursday, and climbed back to the 50s on Friday. That doesn’t happen at home in the Pacific Northwest.

Posted on 03/17/2014 by John Holland, NBCT

Nine years ago, I attended the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards conference in Washington, D.C. It was the most important thing I have ever done, after becoming an NBCT, for my professional soul. But it wasn’t important at the time because of the conference; I only attended one session that year that seemed relevant to my needs. It was important because of a session where I met Bill Ferriter and Susan Graham, who connected me with the Center for Teaching Quality and the Teacher Leaders Network (now the Collaboratory). Click here to read more

NBCT: My Strategy for Accomplished Teaching

Posted on 03/12/2014 by Thomas Trang, NBCT

Every student in my classroom is an individual and learns differently. You name the strategy and I probably have used it in my science classes to help my students learn and achieve success. I have no reservations of trying anything at least once, so this has helped me fine tune how I ask questions in class and to know if students really understand the concepts. kinkvr

What if it took 13 years to become a teacher?

Posted on 11/14/2013 by Ron Thorpe, President and CEO of NBPTS

I am a teacher and my older sister Renée is a gastroenterologist. She studied molecular and cell biology for four years as an undergraduate and then went to medical school for four years. Directly after, she did a three-year residency and then a two-year fellowship. After 13 years of schooling, hands-on learning, and guidance from experienced and board-certified practitioners, she was prepared—and allowed—to practice as a physician. What would our society be like if we created the same type of training trajectory for teachers? 

Think BIG

Posted on 11/05/2013 by Barbara Pape, Executive Producer

It tells the origin story of humankind beginning with the big bang and traveling through the ages to touch down in modern times. Bob Bain, associate professor of history and education at the University of Michigan and Big History guru, says it gives teachers the chance to dig deep, without racing from one topic to another, or, as he puts it engage in “intellectual channel surfing through the school day.” virtualrealamateurporn
