October 13, 2003

I'm off to a slow start this week. Between getting things ready in my classroom and the everyday demands of teaching, I haven't had time to tackle anything on my list so far. Here it is Thursday and I'm just reading over the information I collected last week!

After looking over the case studies and reading through the requirements for each entry, I decided which student I would use for each entry. After deciding which student I would use for Entry Two, I began looking through my assessments to determine what question I would tackle. I was having a lot of trouble doing that, so I decided to clarify that and some other questions I have. I e-mailed the NBPTS Web site and -- to my surprise -- someone e-mailed me right back. I think I have a good idea now what my question will be.

I still need to carry over some of my to-do list to next week, however!
