Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Teaching is the dream profession of many young graduates. It gives them a chance to be heard and share their knowledge with others. It’s a great profession for those who have leadership skills and want to be social. If you have applied to a number of teaching positions and still haven’t become successful, here’s a checklist for you: Consider moving Instead of limiting your job search to your neighboring schools and colleges, send the applications to big schools even if they are far away. If you get selected, you can always move to another city. After all, a job at a premiere college or school will be a great move for your career. Get your paperwork ready Make sure you have your resume, cover letter, and other documents ready. Proofread your resume several times to make sure it does not have any mistakes. Be available on social networks Your presence on social media networks like LinkedIn can help you build connections. If you are connected to administrators from colleges and schools, there are chances that they will prefer you over others when it’s time to hire. Attend job fairs Attend the job fairs held at your alma mater along with those at the neighboring colleges and universities. You have better chances of being selected at your alma mater than the others. Prepare for the interview There are some questions that are asked frequently. For example, “what can you bring to this school” and “how do you plan to influence the students”. Come up with witty and professional answers for these questions. Share vignettes Be open during the interview and share some positive vignettes about your previous experiences. These could include student achievements, classroom management, and unique teaching methodologies that you follow. Follow-up Sometimes the college or school might take extra time in hiring. If you follow up using emails, there are higher chances of you being hired. When you email them, state again that you would love to work with them. Stay positive It’s a tough economy but teaching positions keep opening every now and then in various schools and colleges. Don’t give up hope and you’ll soon bag a great teaching job. That’s it for now Busy Educator. Until next time, Talk to each other, support each other, take care of each other.’ Marjan

Cold War (TV Series) Ep.10 - Cuba - Supporting Worksheet

Cold War (TV Series) Ep.10 - Cuba - Supporting Worksheet

Cold War (TV Series) Ep.10 - Cuba - Supporting Worksheet for the BBC / CNN co-production, narrated by Kenneth Brannagh - Written as a extension and enrichment task for GCSE, it would also be appropriate for A Level studies. Written in Publisher for A3 printing, the document can be edited for printing as a PDF in A4. Fidel Castro comes to power following the Cuban Revolution. Cuba aligns itself with the Soviet Union and the government starts nationalising American interests, resulting in the United States imposing an economic boycott, and the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion. Following the detection of Soviet medium range missiles stationed in Cuba, the United States imposes a blockade on the island, and the Soviet Union mobilises for war. The Cuban Missile Crisis is eventually resolved through secret negotiations, in which the United States and the USSR agree to withdraw missiles from Cuba and Turkey respectively. Interviewees include Fidel Castro, Walter Cronkite, Pierre Salinger and Theodore Sorensen. The pre-credits scene has interviews of Fidel Castro, Robert McNamara and Anatoly Dobrynin explaining how close they felt the world was to a nuclear holocaust.

Resiliency Among the Salmon People: Lesson Plan & Film

Resiliency Among the Salmon People: Lesson Plan & Film

As traditional communities such as the Yupâik in Alaska face a variety of changes, cultural traditions and wisdom passed on from elders help them to sustain their way of life. Set in the remote Alaskan Yukon Delta, Yukon Kings follows Yup’ik fisherman Ray Waska as he teaches his grandkids how to fish during the summer salmon run. With environmental and cultural forces threatening their subsistence way of life, Ray holds onto the hope that his grandsons will one day pass on the traditional knowledge to their children.

Ancient and Modern Worlds: Lesson Plan & Film

Ancient and Modern Worlds: Lesson Plan & Film

In an age of rising populations and climate change, global food security is a major concern. New farming technologies and market-based agriculture provide one answer while traditional farming practices and natural resource management provide another. A Thousand Suns tells the story of the Gamo Highlands of the African Rift Valley and the unique worldview held by the people of the region. This isolated area has remained remarkably intact both biologically and culturally. It is one of the most densely populated rural regions of Africa yet its people have been farming sustainably for 10,000 years. Shot in Ethiopia, New York, and Kenya, the film explores the modern world’s untenable sense of separation from and superiority over nature and how the interconnected worldview of the Gamo people is fundamental in achieving long-term sustainability, both in the region and beyond.

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Australian Slang’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet.

Whole Class Reading - 4 Weeks - KS2

Whole Class Reading - 4 Weeks - KS2

The benefits of whole class reading have been documented on many teaching blogs and forums. This inspired me to have a go at creating a sequence of lessons for a whole class. These whole class reading sessions were originally planned for Y5 children but can be easily adapted for children in Y4 or possibly Y6 and provide 4 weeks worth of planning and lesson presentation. Each flipchart contains 3 x 40-45 minute lessons to replace guided reading with the whole class. On the first couple of slides is an overview of the new reading curriculum objectives that will be covered. Subsequent slides are teaching slides. All reading journal activities (when they may require a worksheet) have been included. Enjoy!
