Interview lesson! HELP

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by ruthhaworth1, May 4, 2012.

  1. I have an interview at a school on wednesday. The lesson objective is to extend understanding that subtraction is the inverse of addition by using real life problems involving money. Its to a group of 20 year 3s... ANY IDEAS??
    Thanks.

    Well done for getting that interview!
    General hints:
    * * * * * Teaching a lesson at interview * * * * *
    Here's your answer to the query about any ideas - but not what you wanted to hear, mind you!
    Sorry, but . . . I don't give help, ideas, comments or ANYTHING about interview lessons.
    And I don't suggest that any other poster does, either.
    There are 3 main reasons for that:
    Firstly, it's got to be you, and your ideas, so that you feel comfortable about what you're doing, and so that the school sees you, and not me or somebody else. And secondly and more importantly, because <u>you</u> are the expert here, not me!
    So you will just have to sit down, think of what your aims are (including the Ofsted criteria - one of the links in the Interview Tips clickable in the Welcome thread says what schools are looking for in interview lessons),
    Take a look also at my Possible interview questions clickable in the Welcome thread
    Make sure you plan a lesson that enables children to progress, and have a plan that you will press on the observer that includes differentiation, just in case you don't get round to using it in the lesson itself.
    And a third reason is that this is a public forum, and other candidates for the same job might see the suggestions too . . . and wouldn't you look daft doing the same thing!
    One of the other Heads on this Forum recently had 4, FOUR, candidates who used a lesson that they had got from here. She recognised it.
    Wouldn't have mattered if she hadn't, because all 4 of them did the same thing, which sort of gave the game away.
    So if someone puts on here some ideas, someone else might see them and copy them.
    Best of luck!
    I look forward to you starting a thread that says: Dear Theo, I got that job!
