The American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence (www.abcte.org) is seeking subject matter experts to participate in the development of our world history and geography teacher certification exam.
The American Board is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to increasing the number of highly qualified teachers available to schools around the country and is partially funded by a grant through the U.S. Department of Education.
The American Board offers the Passport to TeachingSM certification Ė a respected and efficient way for knowledgeable and motivated individuals to become teachers. One element of this premiere teacher certification program is a rigorous content area exam for potential teachers.
To develop these exams, we rely on the knowledge of subject matter experts. All meetings of subject matter expert panels are held in Washington, DC. Each participant receives a daily honorarium and the American Board provides reimbursement for your food, lodging and travel expenses.
The development of our world history and geography certification exam will continue through the fall of 2007. If you are interested in participating, please forward your CV to Ryan Wilkes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Expressing interest in participating in the development of this teacher certification exam does not require a firm commitment at this time. Rather, your name and areas of expertise are entered into an internal database used when inviting subject matter experts to attend exam development meetings occurring every six-eight weeks.
This is a unique opportunity to change the lives of our nationís youth by ensuring that they are taught by exceptional teachers. As a contributor to the development of our exams, you will be helping place individuals with demonstrated subject area mastery and professional teaching knowledge into our nationís classrooms.
