Project 1. Teaching, Learners and Assessment


Project 2. Addressing an Issue




Using the honor system, applicants can acquire virtual badges certifying that they have demonstrated a particular skill. The required skills are 1) model respectful, reasoned, behavior in 2 presentations and one interaction; 2) demonstrate 3 instructional methods for EE; 3) demonstrate engaging learners in the environment and their learning; and 4) demonstrate using teachable moments.

Applicants will demonstrate their skill in front of a third party certifier who is knowledgable about the skill whose name will be added to the skill sheet – very similar to what scouts do to add badges.When the applicant submits a signed, dated sheet, the certification coordinator will post a virtual badge on her or his certification web page and make a notation in the electronic and paper files.
