I am a first time user of this site. I am getting back into teaching (believe it or not) after 20 years. :wow: I was busy raising children and have been subbing for the last 10 years. I am using an on-line REAP application. It has the following questions- 1.)What are your 3 most important reasons for wanting to be a teacher? 2.)How much do you want to know about your students in order to be helpful. 3.)What 3 things do you most want to know about your students. 4.)What do you need to know in order to begin your lesson planning for a class? (I think the questions 2-4 are very similar, BUT how could I answer them different enough since they are all required to be answered) 5.)What 4 key components do you believe you must include in your plan? 6.)List and describe 2 core teaching strategies you most utilized in your classroom? 7.) When you think about your students, in what major ways do you most want to influence their lives? I have been looking through the site and :thanks: for all the interesting and helpful ideas. I need to send the info. in by March 11, so any help would be appreciated soooooooo much!
