  1. Hi
    I have an interview next week for KS3 , I have to give a 30 min lesson . I am ok with what I am doing, but can anyone advise me on what areas I should include in my lesson plan - I haven't taught in a school for years, although have been teaching in a college but am not sure if the planning is the same. many thanks

    I always do mine the same way. If you have a look on this resource of mine, I have a plan on there you can look at. This was how we were taught on PGCE, others may do if differently.
    Best of luck! x
     
  4. Our school lesson plans tend to include the following: topic, group, lesson, no of students, any sen details known, Learning objective and outcomes (differentiated), Starter activity, main (broken down with teacher and student activity), plenary, differentiation, extension activities, resources etc
    I would say that the format does not really matter. I mean yes it will get looked at but from experience of being involved in interviews we have had people whose lesson plans were not the most detailed but taught a fantastic lesson and in my opinion that is much better than someone whose lesson plan is great but lesson is not great.
    Hope all goes well
     
  5. We had a meeting last night on outstanding lessons.
    Link to previous lesson (cant really do that tho)
    Starter
    Main
    Plenary
    Differentiation
    Engagement
    Appropriate challenge
    Assessment for learning
    Think thats about it :) good luck xx
     
  6. I hope I am not responding too late. At our school we are preparing for an impending OFSTED visit. We have been advised to include mini plenaries throughout the lesson to audit learning. I am not sure if this is possible within 30 minutes. Good luck with the interview.
