Dear Theo, How do I show progress in a 25min lesson?

    I have an interview lesson tomorrow and I have it all planned to be on the carpet whole class activities as the focus is reading. My lesson plan is thorough and I have included the assessment points which I am focussing on. However, as it is a short lesson I won't be able to show much progress apart from the fact that the children will have been able to talk about the book (I am doing a comprehension lesson).
    Is it ok to say in the interview afterwards that this was the progress the children made and then explain the follow on activities that I would do in a real classroom to gain evidence of their understanding?

    I have written on the end of the lesson plan the next steps as the activities that would follow on from this and the AF points that they cover. Is this enough?

    I have only had a few days to prepare for the lesson and it is out of my comfort zone so I have been panicking about that and not even thinking about the interview part (I am normally pretty good at talking myself up though!) Would like to get the lesson clear in my head so I can concentrate in preparing myself for the interview!

    I don't always get on here twice a day (although I am only SUPPOSED to be on here two or three times a week - do masses more) so I didn't get to see this before you left for your interview.
    I think that identifying the follow-up activities in your lesson plan was a really good idea, and hope that everything turned out well for you.
    Best wishes
