Re: [EASCI] Here to Help
- I would be glad to try to help you. I live in Ohio, so face to face meeting
would be rather difficult. I banked the first year, and needed only 5 points
to become certified. I reworked my #1and gained more than enough points to
reach the golden number.
My year required 6 portfolios, and 4 90 minute tests.
Are you on this regime or the 4 portfolio, 6 30 minute tests? If you are on
the second regime, I would need the requirements copied and mailed, snail
mail, to know the specific requirements.
I needed to use a different science lesson that the first year, do you?
You could email me and attach your entry to my school address:
as I download documents much faster there. Then I could make suggestions, but
remember, I am not an assessor, just a fellow teacher.
THIS IS DOABLE, if I was able to do it!!!! Hope I can help! Good luck!
- --Hi! I live in South Carolina and I passed on the first time. I
teach 8th grade Science.The main focus is Earth Science. My scores on
Entry 1, 2, and 6 were 3.0; Entry 4 and 5 were 2.75( just did
pass);and Entry 3 was 3.375. I'm here to help if I can. I can tell
you what I did the different Entries on and how I went about doing it
if you want. Just remember know the National Science Standards ...
get a copy of the book...( and of course the NBPTS standards) and
when you write your Entries intergrate their language with yours.
Join a cohort group. It doesn't matter if the others are not
Science. Mine weren't. Do not try it alone! If possible, have a
NBCertified Teacher read your work!! I did and I cannot tell you how
much it helped! Remember focus on higher order process skills and
science process skills, not remembering science facts!! Good Luck to
