    Cory Said:Which job is best for a future graduate student?We Answered:I agree with ooooo above about the on-campus job. A library position would be specific to your field without the expectations and hassles of the other options outside of work. Even subs in the public school still have to commit time outside of the job just to find availability and work out some kind of schedule. It can be very inconsistent and draining. That being said, subbing will still give you a stronger job history than being a bus attendent. If you are looking for something easy and straightforward, the...

    5th Grade Lesson Plans

    Edward Said:Where can I find lesson plans on "the Trail of Tears"?We Answered:The events of of the early 1830's to Native Americans is a very dark and tragic subject. I'm not sure you can really convey this period to 9 yr olds without either boring them or scaring them. Rounding up residents in U.S. and "putting" them somewhere isn't a 19th century notion.

    Lesson Plan Software

    Victoria Said:what is a good electronic midi keyboard for childrens piano lessons software?We Answered:Don't waste your money on the software or a keyboard.

    Lesson Plan Template

    Tina Said:Are ''objectives'' and ''learning outcomes'' the same thing?We Answered:Not exactly. They're closely connected, though. Objectives in lesson plans are your objectives for teaching. The outcomes are what your students should be able to do once you have taught them. Your objectives and your outcomes should be linked to each other. So, for example, an objective might be, "to teach everyone about photosynthesis." The learning outcome might be, "students will be able to explain the process of photosynthesis in a narrative and in a graphic/drawing." I hope this helps! Good luck!...

    Visual Art Lesson Plans

    Charlotte Said:What should I choose as my future career?We Answered:You have a lot of interests... I would say freelance. I live in New York City and I know some art teachers who work for the various museums in the area, teaching a few classes per week and getting $100 per session. This allows you to be more flexible to pursue your other interests. If you can perform music to some degree, consider working evenings as a waitress or bartender in a piano bar. These bars will pay you to work there as staff, but you'd get to sing and perform anywhere from...

    Vocabulary Lesson Plan

    Naomi Said:Hi, can you help me with a 'Character trait' lesson plan for foreign students?We Answered:i think the best bet is to play-act various common/daily-life situations wherein the trait is revealed. if they can read, make little chits with one situation in it & their role/character. i'm thinking as i'm typing, so forgive any clumsiness. you can use this with pairs of students so that you can bring out the trait & its opposite. eg. you are a cab-driver. a rich person leaves a wallet in cab. what will you do? or, student 1: keeps wallet. student 2 : returns wallet to...

    Volleyball Lesson Plans

    Louise Said:Should I start volleyball or ballet?We Answered:I don't think there's any doubt that you should do ballet. It's obviously what *you* really want to do, and there's no reason to do things only because other people want you to. It can be temporarily awkward to stick to your guns and do what you think is best though, I admit, but so worth it and a skill that you'll really need to use in life if you want to *have* your own life. People will always try to push other people to do things, but the decision is yours....

    Helen Said:Review my College Essay PLEASE...?We Answered:Well the first thing is, don't say i learned at the beginning of every sentence. And I wouldn't say it hurts when doctor’s try to stab an IV into your arm, I would say it hurts when the doctors stick an IV needle in your arm. But other than that your collage paper is AMAZING! Man it is super good. I know how it is to be in the hospital because in 3rd grade I had to get surgery on my appendix. And that was a rough time. Anyway I hope this helps!!!...

    Jerome Said:What is a good lesson plan for learning guitar and/or bass?We Answered:First thing is to get more dexterity with your fingering.

Use the one finger-per-fret technique using the first 4 frets. 1-2-3-4 on each string and once you get to the smallest string, go backward 4-3-2-1 The next step is you use the first 8th fret with the same fingering pattern going up and down. Use alternate picking and if you make a mistake, start over. Alternate picking is very important to acquire...

As a beginning teacher I exchanged lesson plans with a colleague who was an excellent teacher. The plans were very good. They were, however, not my plans, or my style of teaching.

Any lesson plan, however should include your aim or aims usually in question form, motivation, materials...

Yes, it will definately help her if she knows them...but they will do a review in the first few weeks of Kindergarten. I'd slow down a bit.
