      Good luck. All you need to do is document this website usage
      and how the interactive componets foster student learning. The
      newsletter idea is very helpful for classroom-parent dialog
      especially since a recent NEA study found that parents are
      feeling more and more like outsiders in their childrens' school. If
      you can prove that you cause the reverse to happen that would
      be beneficial to you passing this Entry.

      For my EASCI passage I started with 4, then entry 3,2, and finally
      entry 1. Good luck.
      Regards.

                I would think yes.  It would help your documentation to have the letter.  Also, if you can prove this has helped you and the parents to communicate more or show that grades have improved (measurable growth).  If you can show measurable growth, tell how much either with a percent of students whose grades have improved because of parent involvement or one or more students improvement in grades.
                Good luck!

                  thescienceteacher,

                  I'm getting the big picture now. Thanks for responding.  So for documentation, the instructions say a single verifier is sufficient for any one accomplishment.  But, we can have up to 16 pages.  Are there certain types of accomplishments where the assessors are looking for more documentation and others where less is acceptable because they just get it?  For example: one of my accomplishment for leader/collaborator and  learner has been a huge two year undertaking with a lot going one.  My thought was, since this is so big and drawn out that I would use more documentation to show the different stages. On the other hand, the web page is relatively straight forward and I can verify it easily with less documentation.  Does that sound right?   Are artifacts better than verifiers for documentation? Or does it not make a difference?  Thanks so much for you comments, suggestions and answers to questions.

                  Cheers,
                  Sue

                      Are there  certain types of accomplishments where the assessors are looking for  more documentation and others where less is acceptable because they just  get it?  No.   Remember the categories are parent/commuity, leader/collaborator,  and  learner.  You can have one article on your writing that targets all three aspects.  You just are not allowed to have more than the designated pages based on your porfolio instructions.  Scorers will only read up to the page limit and not futhur.  

                      I have heard of candidates that have only submitted 3- accomplishment regarding the 3 aspects and received a 4.  It is what you are writing about and your documentation.  Ask yourself these questions: Does it appear to be consistent?  Is this just routine that all teachers are expected to do?  Are your artifacts dated within the time span allowed? Review your rubric for this entry as well.   Good luck.

                          I document student impact with a letter from a parent who has used this
                          resource as a method to motivate her child for improvement? Thoughts?

                            I'm getting the big picture now. Thanks for responding. So for
                            documentation, the instructions say a single verifier is sufficient for
                            any one accomplishment. But, we can have up to 16 pages. Are there
                            certain types of accomplishments where the assessors are looking for
                            more documentation and others where less is acceptable because they just
                            get it? For example: one of my accomplishment for leader/collaborator
                            and learner has been a huge two year undertaking with a lot going one.
                            My thought was, since this is so big and drawn out that I would use more
                            documentation to show the different stages. On the other hand, the web
                            page is relatively straight forward and I can verify it easily with less
                            documentation. Does that sound right? Are artifacts better than
                            verifiers for documentation? Or does it not make a difference? Thanks
                            so much for you comments, suggestions and answers to questions.

                            Cheers,
                            Sue

                                I used online communication with a personal website to include science objectives, projects, homework, etc  I also used email lists I developed from a personal letter and sign up from open house. Parents emailed me when mid six weeks reports or in some cases weekly student summaries were sent home.  I used one email that I printed showing correspondence back and forth over a graded paper.

                                I also used email copies between other science teachers in my building. I also taught a science environmental enrichment class where the students wrote a news letter that was given out to all students and sent home.

                                Hope these ideas are good for you.
