interview

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by missh27, Feb 8, 2011.

    I have an interview on Monday and was hoping people could pass judgement on my lesson plan idea.
    It is for yr5 and will last for (only!!) 20 minutes.
    all they have said is that it is to be on number.

    My ideas are:

    Starter: Guess the number
    Main: Number Sequences - do some as a class then get pupils to complete some.
    Plenary: Fibonacci number sequence

    what do people think?

    Seems to fit a theme.
    But what is your lesson objective? How will children show improvement? What about differentiation?

    Miss H -
    Well done for getting that interview!
    However . . .
    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!
    Best of luck! I look forward to you starting a thread that says: Dear Theo, I got that job!
