Home Stretch takes place just before the National Board portfolio is due, when candidates are getting ready to focus their attention on final revisions.
WEA offers Home Stretch seminars annually in February through April, and two options are available, a 3-hour and a 6-hour seminar, both consisting of peer feedback on written commentary. Event fees include lunch, clock hours, and all training materials and resources.
Small like-certificate groups meet with one NBCT Facilitator to read and provide standards-based feedback on the written commentary for Components 2, 3, or 4 using a protocol specially designed for use at WEA Home Stretch events.
In full day events, candidates get a second round of feedback on Component 2, 3 or 4 written commentary, OR, they can opt to gwt support with Component 1 (Assessment Center) Preparation. In a small, like-certificate group, candidates explore the selected response items, the constructed response exercises, and released items.
Supported Work Groups: Dedicated work time with available NBCTs who answer questions and provide support.
Costs to WEA members are approximately $60 for the 3-hour Home Stretch seminar, and $100 for the 6-hour Home Stretch seminar (via credit or debit card only). Prices are subject to change.
Note: Trainings may be cancelled should registration numbers not meet the minimum requirements. Members will be offered alternative options or refunds for cancelled events.
