  3. For a musical link, Julie Felix's "Fire Water Earth and Air" was a good play, (but now I'm going back to 70s).

    Which subject is your specialism Use that as a focus for the 'take' on oneof the topics.
     
  5. Considering this is for an interview lesson I would suggest that you spend some time developing your own idea, then if needed, sharing it on here for developing your ideas.
     
  6. I completely agree with PFF! [​IMG]

    You have tried the easy option once already! [​IMG]
     
  7. People are actually very supportive on here, but we aren't going to write prepare your interview for you.
    As a word of warning, a primary head who posts regularly on here watched 4 teachers teach the SAME lesson at interview which had been posted on here.

    I would have struggled to keep a straight face during those! And not appointed any! Not that I get the final say, just a little bit of a say.
     
  9. .
    [​IMG] Find that very difficult to believe tbh considering interviews usually only involve about six applicants. It would be more than a major coincidence that all those involved in that particular interview used ideas from this forum and all applied to schools in same geographical area, let alone attend the same school.

    Feel free to disbelieve it, but the Head, who posts regularly on here stated quite clearly that it had happened an I'm quite prepared to take her word for it. People also ask others for copies of their personal statements on here, and because of the duplications which are occurring Heads are now running applications through the same anti plagiarism software that universities use for essays and assignments.

    Lots of urban myths on here I do believe. It's like saying my friends friend heard all about blah blah blah. Did they really? I'd take the negative comments on here with a pinch of salt. Working as a teacher I too thought that teachers were meant to be supportive and share ideas. Whilst this is true in the main there are as I like to say a lot of '***' who don't share and just like to make life difficult. If a child comes to you and says they are stuck and don't know what to write you don't just tell them to *** off do you? Whilst you don't want to do their work for them you'd give them a nudge in the right direction. Come on pink flip flop, in the time in took you to write your first reply you could have easily written an idea or just ignored it. Instead you chose to get on your moral high ground.

    Try the old captain planet cartoons. Youtube them and find the characters. Might be a good way to introduce the 4 elements.

    Chin up tinkeranabel. Some teachers do share. People wonder why I'm such a cynic when fellow colleagues are such ***!

    I was agreeing with pinkflipflop.
    I've always been a 'sharer' but the people who post on here for ideas without offering any of their own for refinement are a lazy lot.
     
  16. I am far from lazy. You have no idea all the stuff I have to work on at the moment. I have no experience of an interview so I looking for people to share their ideas. I thought that people would use here to look for ideas that is why I am not sharing them now but I will when I have delivered them. I just wanted some advice. Some people on here are lovely and really have helped but others just seem to want to upset people and make them feel they have done soemthing worng. I always change and adapt ideas I find on here anyway and make them my own so they would not be the same as everybody elses hopefully!
    If you would share your experiences of interviews that would be helpful.

     
  17. People did give you advice. We suggested that you come up with a clear learning objective and plan from there. You didn't like that so you started another thread.
    My experience of interviews? You need to know your stuff and be yourself. Make sure your lesson has a clear objective and that you are enabling the children to make progress and achieve the learning objective. In the interview you should be able to elaborate on any answers you give.
     
  18. As far as I'm concerned, suggesting that a professional comes up with their own learning objective first and a few ideas IS a nudge in the right direction.
