As part of my GTP application process my potential employing school has asked me to prepare and teach a lesson with year 4 pupils. I have very little school experience and have been told I can decide which the lesson should comprise. I do not know what the curriculum areas the pupils have already covered and will be taking the lesson straight after the Christmas break. I am planning to prepare a lesson on developing thinking skills, making it a very interactive lesson with discussion on what, why how type questions. I believe this observed lesson is more about my ability to engage and react with the children rather than my curriculum knowledge. Do you agree? Any comments would be much appreciated.
