Classic Childhood Books That Grow With You

Classic Childhood Books That Grow With You | Homeschool | Scoop.it

Remember the books your parents/teachers/babysitters read to you when you were a kid? When it came to my parents, they chose the books they had loved as children themselves. When my mother read these to me, she would often end up crying at the end.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, March 20, 2014 10:29 AM

I love to ask the question, "Describe a mistake you made in the past few months and what did you learn from it?"  It is similar to the question that is in this article "Describe a time you failed."

 

What I look for in a candidate's response is someone who is honest, who has learned from the mistake, ....and most importantly has adapted their appraoch to prevent the same mistake from happening in the future. 

 

The question about the weakness is similar.  When a person is asked, "Describe one of your weaknesses."  Individuals who respond with statements such as an area of opportunity that I identified this year to work on is ____.  What I have done to develop in this area is ___, and the results are ___.

 

Gaps in employment are tricky.  My advice is to demonstrate that you have been making valuable use of your time.  It could be volunteering, taking care of an ill family member, developing your skills through continued education, etc.

 

I hope you find this article helpful.

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

Cindy Huskey's curator insight, February 8, 2014 4:14 PM

The first three skills are essential for all consumers of digital content. Let’s face it –  there’s a serious decline in our kids’ ability to evaluate online information and write effectively. Not to mention their lack of social and moral ethics when posting to Facebook and Twitter. How do we educate our kids? Advocate the teaching of information literacy.

Terry Harding's curator insight, November 14, 2013 5:32 PM

These are great character traits for any student to develop.

 

However, students who are educated in the home-based context, have the distinct advantage, in that they are not cocooned in the cloistered environment of a school for 13 years. Rather they are involved in the real-world contexts of family and the marketplace and thus are able to cultivate themselves in real-world settings.
