    When you have been asked to submit a full lesson plan, but do a microteach of it, what is the best section to show?

    Introduction & first activity?

    Final activity and plenary?

    Which part of the lesson can showcase your best?

    Only you can know your own strengths to 'show your best'.

    I would definitely do the 'pre-lesson assessment bit' at the start to show you are aware of knowing the strengths/weaknesses of the actual class in front of you and don't just 'plough on regardless' and can differentiate / change your lesson if need be, based on that observation and definitely a plenary to demonstrate progress, with some actual input in the middle. Whether that be 'teaching' or an activity to showcase how you relate to your students, only you can decide.

    From what you said, I gather its probably best to start at the beginning? As it just feels weird if you microteach a lesson that's theoretically halfway through itself.
