HI everyone, any help would be appreciated! I have applied for school direct and been offered an interview next Friday. This is the information I have been given You will be observed teaching a Year 8 History lesson with the objective of: To explain the impact of James Simpson and Joseph Lister on surgery. A data sheet for the class is attached along with our lesson planning pro forma to aid with your preparation. The data sheet is very hard to understand, there's so key for the abbreviations etc The observed class is going to be an hour (seems long to me from what I have read of others experience?) I am going to ask the following questions beforehand. (1) how detailed does the lesson plan need to be? I have been looking at it and there seem to some things that I cannot complete due to lack revenant information e.g such identifying able and gifted students and direction for next lessons… (2) I must confess I don’t have experience of risk assessments, at least not in the classroom, what should I put there? (3) should I be setting homework? (4) will I have access to overhead projector and programs like word or powerpoint? (5) should/can I do an activity at the start to introduce myself/get to know the students? (6) I dont quite get 'How will tasks be differentiated to achieve the desired outcomes’, like tasks differentiated between students based on their ability? (7) is there a LSA? please any tips as to what I could/should/should not do are any of my questions really stupid/obvious? if so what the answer? are there any questions I haven't thought of but should ask? I have been teaching English abroad fro about 6 years, but have very little experience of English schools having only worked as a SEN TA 6 months and I have never taught a class like this, I also know zero about the subject, I have literally never heard of these doctors so ill have to research that also. It seems like a lot to ask of a teacher with no experience teaching or planning these types of lessons but maybe I'm just being naive. In a previous interview I just had to give like a 20 min class to a group of teachers about WW1... Thanks!!
