The Moral Imperative of Voting – Civic Education Begins at Home
Jana Bryant, NBCTOctober 30, 2018

Recently, my young adult children informed me that there are two “taboo” topics that shouldn’t be discussed around the kitchen table or at family gatherings: politics and religion. So, if politics isn’t discussed at these events, then when are future young voters getting the opportunity to engage in purposeful conversation with their peers, their families, and other community members to become informed in local politics? According to the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) at Tufts University, roughly 50% of 18- to 29-year-olds voted in the 2016 election. However, less than 20% of young people eligible to…

Finding Our Voices
Chris Arenth, NBCTAugust 17, 2017

Through my district’s Teacher of the Year process, I told myself that no one would see the value in what I do compared to the other fine teachers on that stage. I teach PreK, for goodness sake!  People think all we do is play! The other finalists taught AP classes and led outstanding clubs and committees.  However, on the night of the awards ceremony, one of my fellow finalists said something that helped me to see it all from a different perspective. “We all work with kids who choose to learn, we just help them achieve more.  You help your…

Leading From Inside the Classroom
Jane Fung, NBCTAugust 4, 2015

Editor’s Note:  Jane Fung, NBCT, is a first-grade teacher in Los Angeles. The views expressed in this blog are her own. Several years ago I met a university supervisor working with my school’s cohort of student teachers. I don’t remember her visiting my classroom, observing my student teachers, or ever discussing classroom instruction. What I do remember was her underlying message to the student teachers that being a classroom teacher should be temporary. She told them to be a success in the teaching profession, you need to move out of the classroom as soon as possible, and to stay longer…

Developing Specialized Knowledge by Pushing Myself as a Reader
Jennifer Dines, NBCTJuly 24, 2015

Last year, while mentoring a second-year middle school English teacher, I complimented her knowledge of books for young adults. I was impressed by the expertise she demonstrated when making personal book recommendations to each of her seventh graders, helping them develop into successful independent readers. I asked her how she knew about all the different titles. “Well, I read them,” she replied. “You really read all of those YA books?” I asked in awe. “I feel like it’s my job,” she said. And she was absolutely right. In every version of the National Board standards, for each certification area, there…

Embracing the social in Social Distancing
Dr. LaTonya Barnes, NBCTJune 22, 2020

It’s the first day of summer! This is the time of year children look forward to all year long; however, due to the COVID -19 pandemic, this year may not be what children imagined. Instead of playing Tag, Musical Chairs, or Red Rover, children are now being forced to play Simon Says… and Simon says: Pause! If anything this “Great Pause” has taught us, is that we should always remember to make our health and well-being a priority, without forgetting that social connections are essential to nearly every aspect of health and well-being. Results from the lack of prolonged social…

The Power of Community and Storytelling
Jennifer Dines, NBCTMay 16, 2018

I believe in the power of community to provide support during a time of need. I realized the potential of storytelling within a community on a recent Saturday. I was feeling incredibly low from a challenging week at work – two former students at my school were murdered – one a 17-year-old at a party and another gunned down in broad daylight outside of the Burger King near my school. On the day of the murder at Burger King, I taught with helicopters flying outside the window and my students and I in lock down mode. At a meeting after…

Many Hands Make Light Work: Connecting Teachers in Professional Learning through Video Cases
Josh McLaughlin, NBCTMay 16, 2016

“I make the point that you need firstly a diagnosis, an analysis of what the problem is. You need a vision of what a better alternative would look like. And then you need a plan to get there—to go from this to that.” -Sir Ken Robinson In seventh grade, my English teacher, Mrs. Kiesner, asked us to research a Greek god or goddess as part of a quarter-long study of Greek mythology and to prepare a short oral report to share with the class. I chose Atlas, the Titan god of endurance and astronomy, who, as the story goes, had…
