As my junior year winds down, I would like to get a head start on my application for the NA. I’m currently enrolled in trigonometry/pre-calculus with 4 weeks of school to go. I reached out to my math teacher seeking a letter of recommendation and she said she’d be happy to write me one. Here’s the problem.... I opted for the online version of this class instead of the standard brick and mortar classroom version. A big misconception these days is online classes are an easy way to get your education in. But that is certainly not true as it takes the same amount of work/time whether a course is completed online vs. in the classroom. Long story short, I opted for the online version of trig/pre-calc because it allowed me the flexibility to learn in my own time and space. When it comes to online classes, the teacher is only there to grade assignments and assist students when necessary. From reading the forums, people say to have teachers write about the student’s integrity and leadership skills within the classroom. Obviously this doesn’t allow with my current situation. Has anyone been in this situation before? I feel like homeschoolers face this predicament. Should I reach out to my teacher and request a recommendation that covers certain characteristics of my choosing? Thanks for the help!
