    Hello!

    I am just starting to do my TPA requirements for California.

    I was looking through TPA 1 in Taskstream and there are boxes in which we need to enter our responses. I have only done lesson plans and other assignments in my courses, so I am unsure on how to write my responses..
    Any advice on the format used to write my responses? Or advice n the type of writing they are looking for?

    Thanks :)

    You're addressing fellow professionals: they're less interested in pretty grammar than they are in whether you show signs of knowing what you're doing.

    A TPA question often consists of an overarching question followed by a number of subpoints. You don't need to supply all the information in the box that goes with the overarching question: give an overarching answer in that box, then elaborate this detail or that aspect in the subpoint box that asks for it. Use correct technical terminology where possible.
