National Board Renewal WLOE-EAYA

I am working on my renewal for my National Board certification in World Languages Other than English, Early Adolescence through Young Adulthood. I have been trying to find support groups and resources for the renewal process because I find the instructions to be rather vague and the rubric even more so. I do not want to waste time and money doing it again next year because I simply did not understand what was required. I am going to compile a list of resources here that I have found so far, and I’ll add to entries to my blog as I complete the process in hopes of helping others through the journey.

NBPTS Renewal Resources and Forms: http://www.nbpts.org/national-board-certification/candidate-center/renewal-candidate-resources/

Instructions for the electronic portfolio submission. This part seems to be the most confusing/frustrating, according to what I have read on the Facebook group, so plan ahead for this. I got an e-mail in March with instructions for registering at the online submission website and how to get a code that I needed. http://www.nbpts.org/national-board-certification/candidate-center/eportfolio-submission/

Electronic submission page–it may take multiple days to upload, so do not wait until May 16. Mailing the box was easier! http://www.nbpts.nesinc.com/Home.aspx

I filmed my classes before I read the suggestions for making the video a small size. I hope it all works out when I edit it! http://www.nbpts.org/wp-content/uploads/RecommendedVideoFormatsandSettings.pdf

Renewal at a Glance! Beth Edwards, Renewed NBCT: The video has an automated voice, so it sounds odd, but the content of each PPT slide appears below the video and the PPT is downloadable http://slideplayer.com/slide/5742362/

A Slideplayer presentation without audio for Component #2: It’s from 2012, so the videotaping requirements are a bit different (videos are now directly uploaded to NBPTS, according to what I understand) http://slideplayer.com/slide/5742364/

Another Slideplayer (again, weird voice on video), this time for Component #3 http://slideplayer.com/slide/3941840/

I found a large number of Pinterest pins. My trouble with those boards is that sometimes I feel like I’m looking for a needle in a haystack, as the saying goes. https://www.pinterest.com/search/boards/?q=national%20board%20renewal&rs=filter

This is a Wikispaces page so it won’t be around for much longer, but it was updated in 2017, so I think the material is current https://getitpd.wikispaces.com/NBCT+Renewal

Facebook renewal group that is very activce https://www.facebook.com/groups/788461007922606/

Pro Teacher has a lively discussion group, though the conversation is primarily around 1st time certification http://www.proteacher.net/discussions/forumdisplay.php?f=61

This is from 2004, but it still appears to align with the 8 criteria in the renewal rubric https://www2.k12albemarle.org/dept/instruction/arc/teachers/NBCT/Documents/Understanding_the_Renewal_Decision_20061.pdf
