Without needing to know the class, and them to know me, they felt secure contributing within their groups, with peers they knew, and only those who were confident needed to actively speak to the whole room. Talk to me about a current issue in education This may seem a surprising question for an interview but was actually submitted by a teacher after they were asked it in their own interview. Take a look at Guardian jobs for schools for thousands of the latest teaching, leadership and support jobs. But that was because the whole lot, lesson and materials, had been devised by the DH herself and uploaded onto TES Resources.
Therefore even if you do think you keep relatively on top of education news, make a conscious effort to read up on a few news articles before your interview which you find interesting and would be happy to discuss and offer your opinions on. You should see this as your opportunity to show how you learnt from the experience, what you would do in hindsight and the strengths gained from it which you now utilise and can apply to their role. When the interviewing panel questioned the candidate about planning the lesson, how she had devised the materials, etc.
Each person counted them separately to check they all had the same number frequently they didn't. He is responsible for leading experts from 40 offices across the UK who specialise in recruiting for Early Years, Primary, Secondary, SEN, Further Education and Leadership staff on a daily supply, long term supply or permanent basis. I suggest that you read these in this order. Can they begin any other analysis; how about fractions? However people can panic at the vague nature of this question and not answer it effectively.
Hullo Lucy Jessica, and welcome to our forum. If I walked into your classroom during an outstanding lesson, what would I see and hear? Photograph: David Sillitoe for the Guardian While job hunting, I attended quite a range of interviews; all but one asked me to be observed teaching as well as having the spoken interview. Then move on from there! With very little input from you, mostly through questioning, the children should progress through the lesson from not knowing anything about their Smarties, to being able to draw conclusions based on their data. Each table was given a tube of Smarties and their first job was to count them.
Each table was given a tube of Smarties and their first job was to count them. There are 3 main reasons for that: Firstly, it's got to be you, and your ideas, so that you feel comfortable about what you're doing, and so that the school sees you, and not me or somebody else. I suggest that you read these in this order. Finding out that there aren't a fair number of Smarties in a pack will sure do that. In a very short space of time they'd observed, discussed, and then appropriately applied, several aspects of persuasive language and all through the use of a plastic cup.
He is responsible for leading experts from 40 offices across the UK who specialise in recruiting for Early Years, Primary, Secondary, SEN, Further Education and Leadership staff on a daily supply, long term supply or permanent basis. And don't use a lesson from on-line resources either, for your interview.
There is also a lot of repetition of "click, clack, moo" so I found it was fun to ask the children to demonstrate their very best "moo. The children really enjoyed this activity and we had lots of fun with language including puns and gags. Finding out that there aren't a fair number of Smarties in a pack will sure do that. But I went for an object that wasn't that exciting; an odd approach, I know, but I wanted them to be the creative ones. The children are engaged and genuinely interested as they feel they're being potentially cheated out of Smarties. Using this process you can extend the lesson as long as it needs to be.
So it can happen! Give me an example of a classroom situation where the children have been challenging — what did you do to overcome this? The children really enjoyed this activity and we had lots of fun with language including puns and gags. The basic plot outline is that the cows find an old typewriter you'll probably have to explain what this is and begin writing messages to the farmer and demanding things. Which colours are more popular? Make sure to go into detail on what lesson you would be teaching, the year group and your strategy.
Now for the bad news.
The children really enjoyed this activity and we had lots of fun with language including puns and gags. You need to show your understanding of different levels in the class and the appropriate assessment techniques for your class and setting. It might be that the second stage of your interview process you will have to deliver a lesson so in order to get there you want to allow the school leader interviewing you to envision what this would be like with your response. Throughout this lesson there was a buzz in the room, the children were at the centre of all of the activities, including the reading, so there was no worry of too much teacher talk.
Smarties maths: counting, analysis and fractions There are many, many lesson ideas for using Smarties in the classroom for lessons; I found them particularly useful as an engaging tool for a 30 minute lesson. And a third reason is that this is a public forum, and other candidates for the same job might see the suggestions too. I decided to take plastic cups. I used this lesson several times, including for the eight minute lesson as a shared read and all of the different classes got something different out of it. And secondly and more importantly, because you are the expert here, not us! His extensive experience is invaluable to ensuring schools, colleges, nurseries, academies and MATs have access to the best possible candidates.
She recognised it. You should see this as your opportunity to show how you learnt from the experience, what you would do in hindsight and the strengths gained from it which you now utilise and can apply to their role. So if someone puts on here some ideas, someone else might see them and copy them.
