Dear Theo, I am an experienced teacher looking for another job- KS2 Primary- in the coming year and have got my cv ready etc. I seem to be able to get interviews but the bit I find really difficult is doing an observed lesson. The last interview I had said 'teach the class for 20 minutes- whatever you like'. The one before that was an hour's lesson- Year 5 'whatever you like'. I find the open-endeness of it is like looking into a black hole - I have no idea how to teach an outstanding lesson from 'nothing' as it were -not knowing the children and with no defined remit to the lesson. I'm fine in my own classroom with children I know and a curriculum to deliver but put in that situation I draw a blank for what to do. Can anyone help??
