    The charter school I have applied to wants us to write a 300 word essay on one of the following statements

    Please list and or describe four characteristics of effective instruction that exemplify your style of teaching or working with students.

    Reflecting on your professional experience please describe a situation or event that represents your approach to teaching and learning.

    They are both simular but I'm not sure if by practices they are speaking about direct instruction etc or the big ideas of teaching like using connections, multiple intelligances etc. I always include my teaching philosophy in my resume packet. Could people give me ideas about approaching this? Thanks! Sarah

    I'd use your philosophy as a starting point. Maybe talk about classroom climate, differentiation, making connections across the curriculum- big ideas but how you take those big ideas into your room and appy them to your kids.

    Good luck.
