This institute was created to give time to candidates to work in a collegial environment. Working independently, with partners, or in writing groups on components, candidates have the opportunity to write, read, and reflect in congenial and supportive surroundings. The community of writers and reviewers supports the development of portfolio entries and the peer review of video tapes of classroom teaching. Recognizing that candidates need time for intellectual stimulation, for reading and writing, and to exchange feedback with colleagues from diverse schools, the writing institute helps teachers exchange ideas, pose questions, and offer suggestions when reviewing a candidate's work. This group gathering is unlike other retreats because candidates have the chance to discuss and listen to issues particular to their unique work, as their work is unfolding. Join your colleagues for thoughtful and reflective discussion about National Board Certification. Please bring a laptop computer, videos, components, portfolio directions, standards, and scoring rubrics.
