Filling out applications for those last minute slots...and I am wondering: Does the order you place references and reference letters count? If I go in reverse chronological order (the newest at the top)....well that makes sense. (My latest letter is from my recent LTS assignment, and it includes the great jump that the kids made in standardized testing from right before I started until the end of my term) But I believe that in terms of a glowing recommendations (aside from those test results) my two letters BEFORE that (from my cooperating teachers and university supervisor) might be better as a first introduction to my potential as a teacher. Does it matter? Do committees read one and get tried before they go through them all? Hmmmmm...what do YOU think? ****** Oooo, post 1,500!
