EDUC 61602 Role and Practice of a Teacher Leader

This course is designed as an introduction to the multiple roles of a teacher leader and the National Board Certification process. Emphasis will be placed on an extensive review of the National Board Standards and how those contribute to the assessment and writing components. An introduction to videotaping and analysis of candidate videos will be completed. Defining the roles and practice of a teacher leader is part of Phase I, Architecture of Accomplished Teaching, allowing for reflection on the candidate's current practice and how that practice may change through the certification process. There are no prerequisites for this course, however, the Teacher Leader Program is a cohort model. It is expected that the courses will be taken in the required sequence.
