EDUC 61619 Content Knowledge: Competency through Assessment Resources

This course assists candidates in understanding the depth of content area knowledge expected in teacher leaders. The standards for the National Board content area certification are reviewed in detail and expansion of content knowledge in preparation for the assessment component is a focus. Candidates are also expected to examine resources available to them in their classroom, school, and district and to plan for utilization of those resources as they prepare components in the portfolio. Candidates will increase their content knowledge and understanding of resources to prepare for Component 1 of the National Boards process as part of Phase II, Theory and Practice of Accomplished Teaching, providing for deeper examination of 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.
