Hi all, First time poster here. Next week I am teaching an obseved Literacy lesson, as part of an interview, in a Year 4 class. It is around 15 years since I applied for a job and observed lessons - as part of interviews -are something I have no experience of at all. So far, my thoughts are on enjoying a poem, (The Magic Box by Kit Wright), examining the techniques used in it and going on to have the children write their own poem etc. My problem is that I would normally spend at least one and maybe two weeks doing this and I don't know how to distill this into one hour...or how to reach a clear result by covering less in the time available. Also, not sure how to handle the aspect of not knowing where the abilities are in the classroom. I would be so grateful for any advice. Thanks very much.
