Before you enter the room for your personal interview, the selector gives everyone a card with feedback on their lesson and you need to redo the first minute of your demo lesson while implementing that feedback.

1 Answers

I redid my lesson with tweaks to adjust for the feedback and then my selector gave me more feedback and asked me to do the lesson again. I redid the first minute 2 or 3 times. Be very open to the feedback and don't take redoing your lesson as a negative sign! Later in the interview I was asked how I felt about the feedback and I think it is more about being open and receptive than anything else. Less

All kinds of questions about various classroom scenarios.

I too was not given an offer in 2016 after making it to the final round. I think they did me a favor as well. At least you were given a reason. I was told due to the amount of applicants they couldn't possibly provide anyone with feedback (but they should). My issue with the "Interviewers" in the classroom, was that there was no diversity. In this great city of many creeds, the selection process should include evaluators who represent the city (and schools) not just one race, and I think that's a real problem You sound really smart and I hope that you are able to share your expertise with youngsters who are need of good role models.

How would you get an extremely unmotivated student to complete homework regularly? What does being a teacher mean to you?

1 Answers

The best way to motivate a student is to find out what is bothering them about completing the assignment. if they are just being lazy, start the assignment with them and use lots of encouragement until you believe you have their attention and they know you wont give up until they finish the assignment. sometimes it just takes a little persistence on your part and a little friendly help. but never ever get angry because that is when you lose them.
