EDUC 61662 Effective and Reflective Practitioner

This course continues the focus on the teacher leader as an effective and reflective practitioner. Component 4 of the National Board Certification process focuses on the accomplishments and professional learning the teacher leader has demonstrated over their time in education, focusing on the most recent activity. As candidates write Component 4, they will examine their commitments to students, families, and colleagues, reflect deeply on what they learned in the process, and write about the significance of each. Candidates will reflect on their own effective practices as part of the final phase of the National Boards process, Phase III, Analysis of and Reflection on 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.
