OK so I've managed to land another interview, but this time at a small unisex high school. They have asked me to give a 30 min demo lesson to some of the M2 level students. The lesson must be on superlatives & comparatives. Should be easy enough but obviously I want to be great at the interview. Does anyone have a link to a great work sheet? Maybe some ideas for a quick game to round off the lesson? Also, where can I find out which grade M2 is? Is that grade 11?
The interview is tomorrow at 10:20, so wish me luck!
Just been called for a second interview with another language centre this evening! No demo lesson needed they say...
I wouldn't use a worksheet if I was you for a demo lesson especially since it's only 30 minutes.
A decent warmer(5 mins), introduce the topic with some flashcards(5 mins), go through sentence structure on the board(5 mins) have them answer some questions(5 mins), practice speaking with each other(5 mins) and finish it off with a game modified to fit the content of the lesson (5 mins).
The class will be over before you check your watch.
^what he said...
they want to see you interact with the students. Worksheets will take the focus off you, not to mention passing them out will be time consuming
Pre-teach some of the comparatives and superlatives related to sizes and shapes. Then invite students up to the front of the room in pairs and triplets, and ask the class to chorus the answer to questions, i.e., 'Who is taller?' or 'Who is tallest?'
You could also do a variation by inviting students up in pairs and triplets and make statements and have students challenge the truth of the statements. For example, 'Somchai is taller than Bright.' If that is not true, teach the students to chorus, 'No, he isn't. Bright is taller than Somachai.'
Don't ask for volunteers. Pick students out of the class, but don't point your finger at any student. Point using your entire hand which isn't impolite.
On the money, as always FF!
@Guy Thanks for the input about fingers vs hands and not asking for volunteers! My last students knew that "asking for volunteers" meant I would pick myself! :p Only time I pointed with a finger in Korea was when I was singling out a student for being disruptive. The rest of the time it was all open hand...
Thanks for all the input. I'll shout back tomorrow after the interview...
