    What have been some successful teaching methods used in your English classes?

      How to Answer

      Focus on how you create lessons when answering this question. By speaking about a plethora of activities you use, the interviewer will see how you work to get students to interact and participate in your class. Show your versatility, so you prove you are much more than only using textbooks or worksheets. Mention things like arts-and-crafts, role-play, debates, and presentations, to name a few.

      Shane's Answer

      "When teaching an English class, I love my classroom feel to be about interaction. I want my students to communicate with me and each other through debates, presentations, and role-playing activities. Many times, students think the teacher is the only one that teachers, but students teach each other as well."

      "In my class, one of the best teaching methods has been using a mock trial to connect with "To Kill A Mockingbird." It is truly the best part of the year for many of my students."

      Shane's Answer

      Continue to compare and contrast real court life to the case involving Mr. Finch as the attorney in the novel. Your students will continue to make connections you may have not even thought of. Keep it up!
