    I have an interview tomorrow (only just found out) and I need to prepare a lesson for Year 10 on the differences between Harvard & von Neumann architecture.

    That is all the information that I have.

    Obviously I know the differences between the two but what sort of activities can I use to make this into a three part lesson lasting an hour??

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!

    You just found out at 3.35pm? Not the kind of place I'd be wanting to take a job.

    Why do you need an activity? I'd just tell them and justify my approach in terms of direct instruction being more effective.

    I don't really understand how the topic can be made to last an hour while sticking strictly to the given topic.

    Yes, stop asking for everyone to do the work for you, get your head down and pull a late one. Or give us your initial ideas to critique.

    You know the topic and how to teach, put the 2 together

    The late, late, lesson, specification is becoming more and more frequent. My last interview gave me notice of interview and lesson the day before, one hour on cloud computing. No exam board or any other information given, so I did it based on CS. Turned out to be BTEC IT, I didn't get the job, but sort of relieved in a way.
    @PersianCatLady, I really hope you did well, I would have had a look at any exam board resources for the topic, then cannibalised them so that they actually made sense.
