    Hello,
    Since everyone on here is amazingly helpful- I'm hoping someone can help me with this question on an application I am filling out,

    How and when do you expand learning opportunities for students?

    Any ideas would be appreciated, Thanks! Jamie

    Using manipulatives in math, designing inquiry-based science lessons, making writing cross-curricular, field trips and virtual field trips, using technology for internet scavenger hunts, powerpoints and video clips. How do these sound?

    Thanks! Love the virtual field trip idea, I haven't thought about that in a while!!

    I should also mention this is an application for a primary position.
    Thanks again!

    that is a hard question. Sometimes I wonder if they even read the applications.
    PM me the school you are applying to.

    Never mind I know where you are applying! Have fun with that 15 page application. I didn't even bother with that school district the app. wasn't worth it to me.

    I avoided applying there also- but now I'm desperate! I'm sure that they won't even look at my application either! And now I'm writing an essay for them... Owell. We are moving there Sept 1st I think- so that's really why I'm applying now.

    I don't exactly understand what they are asking for in the question. I could go different directions, so I am hoping others have had to answer this one! :)

    My friend works there and she was just hired last summer. So she had to answer it. Let me email and see if she knows what they are looking for.

    I had to fill out an application for the job I was offered too. There was an essay question, but they gave you a choice of 4 topics. I went over and over that essay, and honestly, I don't even think anyone read it. The principal who hired me didin't even know that I had already sent my certificate and asked me for a copy. Then she found it when I brought a new one in!!
