  17. 17. Things to know<br />Remember that your community connections in your Documented Accomplishments must be within the last year <br />Documented Accomplishments are a good part of the portfolio to look at first and then revisit last. You will see them through the lens of “student achievement” after writing the other entries.<br />*** You must have release forms on file from all students and any adults in the videos***<br />TEXT<br />TEXT<br />TEXT<br />TEXT<br />ISTE SIGMS<br />Wendy Stephens<br />April 18, 2011<br />
  18. 18. Something else to think about….<br />Take One! allows to start the National Board Process with a single portfolio entry – Entry 2. This might be a good “first step” for those considering the process. <br />With Take One!, you can “bank” the scores and complete the rest of the portfolio the next year.<br />ISTE SIGMS<br />Wendy Stephens<br />April 18, 2011<br />
