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 two options for Home Stretch trainings, 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 will 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. (Note: February 23rd 3-hour events may not be structured in like-certificate format.)
In full day events, candidates can get a second round of feedback on Component 2, 3 or 4 written commentary, OR, they can get support with Component 1 (Assessment Center) Preparation. In a small, like-certificate group, candidates will explore the selected response items, the constructed response exercises, and released items.
Supported Work Groups: Dedicated work time with available NBCTs who can answer questions and provide support.
