Dear Theo and all, worrying over interview and class levels

    Love the photo! Is it yours?
    I feel that what you need is differentiation taken to its extreme, in the sense that you could start off with 2 possible objectives, and then be flexible from the start. When you have seen how they cope, you can decide which way you will take the class.
    My experience in observing interview lessons is that one of the worst things is when the teacher gets the level wrong, can see that it's wrong, but sticks to it like grim death because that's what s/he has prepared.
    And one of the best things is seeing how a teacher assesses the class's needs and is flexible, amending what is done to meet them.
    Best wishes

  2. [​IMG] Thanks and yes, but she's 1 now and that was taken about 10 months ago!
    Thanks, This is really useful. Running out of time though so I think I will write 1 lesson plan and have the back up one in my head and resources in my folder in case of an emergency.

    Would it take that long to put in a 'standby LO/ success criteria on your lesson plan, so the observer is aware that you are prepared. Remember everything needs 'shoving under their noses' to show you have thought about it?
    Best of luck with it. If you pit a reminder on the Interview Reminders thread I'll do my usual Sun. roundup of 'Good Luck Wishes' for all interviewees.
