MATLN Supports NBPTS ATLAS at AACTE Conference In Atlanta

NBCTs volunteered the annual AACTE conference to increase awareness of the ATLAS program. MATLN NBCTs are actively perusing partnerships with Universities in the area to build the teaching profession by offering candidate support to teachers seeking certification. The National Board aims to support teacher preparation by offering ATLAS (Accomplished Teaching, Learning and Schools TM). ATLAS is a unique, searchable online library of authentic videos showing National Board Certified Teachers at work in the classroom. Each video is accompanied by the teacher's written reflection about the instruction or the activity shown. Aligned to professional teaching standards, ATLAS serves as a window into what accomplished teaching looks like. For more information about ATLAS please refer to the National Board website.
