I had my 6th interview today and failed to secure the post yet again! I received positive feedback for my interview and presentation except for one question regarding 'accelerated learning' but I've never been made familar with this term so wasn't exactly sure what they were after. The feedback focused upon my lesson I was told that as the children were a few weeks away from being in Year 4 that the lesson was not challenging enough. I had laid out word problem cards around the classroom for the children to solve and there was a mixture of one and two step problems that involved any of the four operations and a mixture of both. However, the feedback I got was that the children weren't challenged ennough and it was too 'easy' for them when in fact the children I spent time with were actually struggling. I noticed the observers looked at one word problem card so obviously never got the whole view of them. I feel this is so enough, and just been a real blow as I felt so positive about this interview. I feel so ashamed that I've had 6 interviews and failed to secure a post for september =( I've got 2 more lined up, one in a private school what can I do to stand out for that job? Sorry, just needed to rant!!!!
