Job-alike

 

Dear EARCOS Attendee:

Job-alike can be extremely helpful in sharing ideas and creating links with other international teachers. As the leader(s), you would set the agenda and overall focus of the Job-alike and facilitate the meeting. EARCOS will send you email addresses of delegates registered in the same teaching position.
With this, EARCOS needs some help! Below are the topics for job-a-likes unfilled as yet. We will accept volunteers on a “first come-first selected” basis. We prefer as much as possible that they are already registered at the conference and not doing a presentation. We will limit this one from each school.
Grade 1 & 2 (Primary)
Grade 3, 4 & 5 (Intermediate)

MS Art
General Music
ES Physical Education
MS Physical Education
HS Physical Education
Strings

If chosen we will need the following information for the program:

1. Name of facilitator
2. Bio of 50 words
3. Photo (300 dpi or higher resolution)
