National Board Renewal Guidelines

Component Two

component 2 purpose
Component 2 Purpose
  • Component 2 features an in-depth look at the classroom application of one of the PGEs from Component 1.


general rationale
General Rationale
  • Teachers are professionally obligated to become better at what they do.
  • NBCTs demonstrate their knowledge of students and accomplished teaching standards in their classrooms to make a positive impact on student learning.



You may only begin the renewal process if you are in your 8th (no earlier than September 1), 9th, or 10th year of certification.

  • Choose 1 PGE from component 1 and develop a lesson appropriate for students within your content and developmental level.
  • Prepare a video recording of your lesson
    • Video must be 10 minutes, unedited and date stamped
    • May be continuous OR a maximum of 3 unedited segments
  • 4 pages of written commentary responding to the specific prompts


what is a pge
What is a PGE?
  • A PGE is an activity in which you learn something new that has influence within or beyond the classroom and has a DIRECT or INDIRECT on student learning.
  • For EACH of your PGEs you must respond to the following prompts:
  • Provide a context of the professional situation that indicates what need you are addressing.
  • Describe the PGE. How does it demonstrate a response to identified needs of students, the professional community, parents, and/or self?


tips for selecting your pge
Tips for Selecting Your PGE!
  • One of the hardest things about the Renewal Process for most NBCT’s is narrowing down the initial selection of PGEs for Component 1.
  • If you are reading this - Congratulations- you have already done that work.
  • The selection of a PGE for Component 2, you will find much easier! I guarantee it!


the next step
The Next Step
  • After considering the previous questions you should know or at least have a better idea of which PGE to select for Component 2.
  • If you still have some concern, take a moment and look at the remaining components.
  • Again, look at your original four PGEs, which of those would best fit with the options you have with Component 3.


  • You are the best judge of which choice is best for Component 2 and 3.
  • Consider that each of these components are “evidence” of your professional growth and go with the ones that in your NBCT-judgment work best!


videotaping tips
Videotaping Tips
  • Equipment needed:
  • Video camera
  • New, blank VHS videotape of blank DVD-R
  • Tripod
  • Extension cord
  • Masking or duct tape
  • Headphones to monitor the sound being recorded
  • External microphone


how to get the best possible video
How to get the Best Possible Video
  • Practice often
  • Make sure to get students’ faces in the video
  • Place camera and microphone to capture the best sound quality possible
  • Make certain you appear in the video (or at least one of the video clips if using segments)
  • Have a student or colleague video your class
  • Videotape often—you never know when that great moment will be captured!


tips continued
Tips continued:
  • Before recording, check equipment
  • Eliminate noises that may interfere with recording (background noises may reduce sound quality)
  • Record in SP (Standard Play) mode only
  • After each video session, jot down some notes
      • Any particular instructional challenges
      • Lesson objectives
      • Overall success and evidence


how to choose the best segment s
How to Choose the Best Segment(s)
  • Analyze the video segments to choose the segment that presents your teaching to the best advantage.
  • Use the Video Analysis Checklist to analyze each video

other videotaping facts
Other Videotaping Facts
  • You may submit your video in VHS format or Standard single-sided DVD-R
  • If using DVD-R, use a silver or metallic colored disc


suggestions on written commentary
Suggestions on Written Commentary…
  • Review the PGE related terms and use them in the context in which they are defined by National Board. Sometimes your understanding of a term or use in your area may differ and point a scorer in the wrong direction
  • Have a copy of “What Teachers Should Know and Be Able to Do” handy. Your writing should continuously reflect those all-important items.


more suggestions
More Suggestions
  • Remember this is about you and your teaching and impact, don’t spend valuable words on the “others that may have been on the team or led you to this point”. You are the emphasis and your students the benefactors.
  • Answer the prompts. Don’t allow your writing to wander from those specific questions.
  • Cite specific examples!


finishing touches to writing
Finishing Touches to Writing
  • Be thoroughly and specific. When writing about something in the video make the connections to the event saying “the girl in the red shirt asked…”
  • Point out in your writing any event or actions on the part of you or your students that strengthen a response. Reading is knowing but seeing is believing!
  • Spell check, grammar check and read and reread. Writing in a professional manner is another way you show how important your profession is to you and the students.


written commentary for component 2
Written Commentary for Component 2
  • When writing for component 2, review the types of writing under “Writing About Teaching” on page 29 of your Renewal Booklet.
  • From “Specific Prompts” on page 21, make certain to answer each question completely.


considerations for thoughtful selections
Considerations for Thoughtful Selections
  • Plan early.
  • Make certain that your classroom meets the content and age requirements of your original certificate.
  • Choose a lesson/unit that meets an identified need of your students that demonstrates how your teaching made a positive impact on student learning.


what if i can t get started
What if I can’t get started?!!
  • Step away for a few days and refocus and try again.
  • Type the prompts in and just type. You may end up with 8 pages instead of 4 but you can pare down the work later after you find your voice.
  • Remember that National Board gave you specific prompts and that answering those is your focus not writing the next publishing phenomenon.


the writing triangle
The Writing Triangle
  • smallest part of your writing.
  • 25% of your writing should address the identified need of your classroom.
  • majority of the writing should deal with the positive impact your teaching had on your students.

and finally
And Finally…
  • After you have completed the component – celebrate! You are well on your way to renewal success!
  • Am I done yet?

Not quite, lay Component 2 aside. Because your portfolio is scored holistically, you will need to do a final read for congruency.
