GTP interview presentation: advice needed!!

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by laimarch, Jan 25, 2011.

  1. I have a GTP interview coming up fairly soon. I am told to give a
    presentation on why my chosen subject (history) is exciting and
    important to a group of eight 11 year old kids. I know what I would say,
    but they're asking that we interact with the kids and do some
    activities with them. That would not be too hard but the presentation is
    only 10 minutes and I'm really hard pressed trying to think of what I
    could do with them in that time.


    Is there anyone who can offer some advice?

  3. Pick one thing (time in history, physical artifact, collection of ideas, ideals, views, famous quotes, famous leader, invention ...) and focus on that. I wouldn't dare try to cover the virtues of a whole subject in 10 hours nevermind 10 minutes.
    If you can find something which is perhaps viewed as quite "dry" but bring it to life then that will be ideal!
