Interview tips

Discussion in 'Primary' started by katieteach, May 18, 2011.

  1. I am preparing for an interview on Friday. Been thinking about possible questions, if I get asked to describe a lesson which did not go so well, what do you think I should say? I can't really think of any specific examples. Thanks, Katie x

    You've never had a lesson you weren't satisfied with?
    You're either brilliant or incredibly ****. [​IMG]
    Assuming, however, you're neither, but think the question means a lesson that went really badly - whereas it actually wants you to be critical of your own teaching, describe a lesson that you were not satisfied with and be able to say why and what you should have done/how it could have been better if you'd done x, y and z. Do not be tempted to talk about one that didn't go so well because of behaviour - stick to pedagogy and planning.
