NB Renewal
 Overview
      What is the Basis for
           Renewal?
“The expectation is that NBCTs will use both
 the Five Core Propositions and the
 Architecture of Accomplished Teaching as the
 foundation for what they continue to do in the
 classroom and for themselves as lifelong
 learners who continue to grow and enhance
 student learning.” - NBPTS Profile of Professional Growth, p. 6
