6 accomplishments or 6
pages of documentation? Because at the support meeting this month,
one mentor stated that to save room do NOT overstate the nature of the
accomplishment to use that space on the significance and especially
Yes i have 6 diffeent main contributions:
Teacher Advisory Program- parent contacts and helping students with various problems in school and at home. (have 8 students and 3 are in my classes & used the info from the 3 in my class); logged meeting sheet with dates & what we talked about; parent note & letter on letter head from coordinator of this program stating my involvement; commetns from studetns how this program has helped them functin better in school.
Member Of a Community Connection Committee-(to connect science in the high school and the local community college) - have my students attend a lab by a professor their with equipment we do not have and they wrote about what they had learned (letter from the professor in charge of the committee thanking me fro sharing at the meetings showing collaboration) many wrote about how in the Wireless lab activity we did about the same exp. it was easier to understand by actually doing the experiment) and how if I were not a member of this committee the students would not have this experience. Wondered if I am running out of space if I can just state what the students said instead of entering their journal and just quote them.
Involved with a Wireless Lab (computers) Grant-that i volunteered for (documented by vice principle in an email & thanking me for offering to participate) & my classes once a week do a technology activity related to science using various computer techniques and relating them to science (like Excel used to collect data & turn it into a chart & graph); took many workshops over the last few years related to these techniques (& collaborated with other colleagues and was a learner); have documentation of ex Excel workshop & 2 student samples on one page and wrote about what they said while doing & completing this activity how it impacted them) and 2 more examples to show variety & this is the one I am using for my biggest impact (low ec area -- many have no access to computers or the knowledge (application to science & technology) I am teaching them.
Tutoring after school program - Volunteer for 2 years, new program (2 of the students -- who are also in my class, wrote about what they learned and how it has helped them in them in class too); parent letters on how much the program is helping her child.
This is all I can fit but I have 2 more contributions but I think these answer the 3 requirements.
