What lessons, activities, and/or projects have you used with your 3rd/4th and/or 4th/5th Gifted and Talented students during distance learning?
SO and I moved into a loft style apartment where the walls only go up about 80% of the way (there’s 2 ft gap between the wall and ceiling) this has made co working from home a nightmare, even getting a plate from the kitchen is perfectly audible from the bedroom. The place is awesome otherwise - any creative solutions from other fish in similar situations? Considering this a life lesson…
What was that trainwreck last night?!?!? I know we're not supposed to talk about politics, but my comment is bipartisan. Our gov is a mess and our leaders unbecoming! What will our students learn from this? What can we do to make it a teachable lesson?
Can anyone share what books they read out to kids for bed time reading or in general? Anything that is engaging or with good morals/ life lessons
QQ for any TTP users: what would you recommend as the most accelerated use of the portal? I have my GMAT in about 10 days. I've had access for half a month and I'm through ~20% problems. I've only targeted sections where I felt I needed the most improvement mainly focusing on chapter tests. If I haven't met the accuracy needed, I've then spent time on the lessons and usually hit the accuracy after. For additional context, aiming for Q47+. I was on a Q45 on a Veritas mock last week.
It's finally happened. I can feel that I have given up. The breaking point? My CD making a big deal out of having a call on Saturday at 1 pm to look over a deck that was due this morning. I rearrange my schedule. I move my kids piano lesson. I stay up until 2 the night before making sure everything is in line. He never calls. Doesn't respond to my text. I send him the deck and he doesn't respond until Sunday afternoon. Then gets pissy when I say I can't hop on the phone at that exact moment.
I've been "voluntold" to demo an "enrichment lesson" to be filmed and broadcast on our school district tv channel. I'm totally drawing a blank on what to do...what is broadly appealing from US hist?
What are the lessons that you have learnt from Strategy Consulting that you may not learn in other management consulting?
I've been teaching astronomy and running the school planetarium for 5 years now. Just thought it would be nice to share lessons or planetarium shows with others to generate new ideas
Alright I will admit as a Bitcoin Maxi, I was so consumed in that world that I haven’t explored other areas of crypto and may be wrong. I also didn’t buy any other coins so I missed out on Solana. I still think Bitcoin is the best but realize that I need to keep an open mind Just a lesson on not being sclerotic (I had to look this word up too)

And after the cacophony on Hathras dies down, the facts that now emerge are very different. Lesson #9999 - never ever believe Delhi centric media reports especially if a crime has allegedly happened in a Bjp ruled state (facts inside)
Does anyone know of user friendly resources to teach Tinkercad to 4th and 5th graders? The website lessons seem to make lots of assumptions.
Ugh. I went on vacation last week for meeting my boyfriend’s family for the 1st time/his sister’s wedding. I’ve been trying to lose quarantine weight for the past 5 months ahead of this trip (healthier eating, working out 5-6x a day, calorie deficit). I was getting back to my old physique pre covid. But during this trip I just ate everything without thinking twice. Especially when his family would offer food cause I didn’t want to be rude. Now I feel back to square 1. Continued below..
Anyone at LEK / Parthenon / AlixPartners / Alvarez & Marsal hiring? Looking to move from S&
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
While switching companies, can we get the H1B visa transfer approved and still work for the old company for 2 months?
So needing to work 45 hours in advisory going forward, "because professionals already work that much" is a really shitty explication - probably won't get a bump in comp either.
Do you feel like you have to trade between good culture and comp, or do they typically go together in your experience?
I interviewed with an ECD mid-last week and immediately after got some bad news that completely derailed the rest of my week. Because of that, I never even thought about sending a thank you email, but I’m now realizing that probably looks bad. Any tips on how to deal with this?

Help! Only 9 weeks pregnant but on a high-burn project. The team all works super long hours, but I'm EXHAUSTED!!! It's too early to tell my team I'm pregnant, right? How do I navigate?
Best firm for financial tax in Seattle area? In terms of the team vibes, company culture, growth opportunities, benefits and pay, work life balance.
The departure of several key team members with no thought given to replacing them, resulting in an overload of work for inadequate compensation, only serves to undermine my morale. Top management should have awarded bonuses to those who make an effort to honor the firm's commitment to clients to show that it is making an effort to promote a healthy workplace. How do i approach these matters to the partners knowing that they don't honor their promises?
Have an in-person interview with Slalom next week for a consultant position, I’ll be interviewed by 2 different consultants for 45 minutes each. Any tips from Slalom folks? Are these behavioral?
Anyone else go to a really competitive high school / college? I get constant Facebook / LinkedIn updates from folks that went to my alma mater and everyone is doing super well (now doctors, lawyers, FAANG engineers) , and makes me wonder where I went wrong. I recognize that I'm doing better than 90% of the country working at KPMG, but sometimes I wonder what could've been had I worked a bit harder back in college. I know we're all on our own path, but do any of you deal - con’t
Best way to prep for the McKinsey PEI interview?
@DTW All gates holding off on boarding due to "some security issue". Anyone else around the airport know what the issue is?
How many interviews is too many for a job? Company wanted 6 interviews and a case study presentation and I just dipped it’s too much. Is this unreasonable?
