Dear Theo and others. Interview lesson topic "Science in our life"

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by beatamizi, Apr 19, 2012.


  1. Hi,
    I have been asked to attend an interview on Monday 23rd April and teach 50min lesson on "Science in our life".
    I
    am a bit puzzled about the topic. It is very wide and I cannot decide
    if I sould choose one aspec of Science like: Scientific discoveries in
    the last decade or choose something more specific like Global warming or
    even Genes and DNA. There is so much to chose from.
    I wil be teaching Y8 class.
    Should I stick to the N.C. or go beyond that and find something different.
    What would be the best option?
    Many thanks

  3. I think they have purposely left it wide and open to interpretation to see how interesting you can make your lesson. I had a similar one for my subject of "Real Life Maths", a couple of weeks ago and all of us candidates had prepared very different interesting lessons. Choose something that may not necessarily be part of the national curriculum but that relates to it. I did "Mobile Phone Contracts", the children liked it and it related to the NC as they needed to read and interpret data from 2 way tables and work out the cost of stuff. I know another candidate did "Value for Money" and that must have gone down well too as he got the job.

    Hope that helps. Good Luck!
