Teacher Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    Describe your typical lesson.

      The interviewer would like to know how you organize your lessons. Think back to your student teaching lesson plans or what has worked in your past experiences. Typically, a good class starts with a game, warm-up activity, or discussion about the topic of the lesson you will be teaching. Then, you might do homework check or get started on the day's lesson. For example, include a reading passage, discussion questions, and a short quiz at the end of the assessment. Make sure to include some way to access whether students have understood the material.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "My typical lesson will include a mix of written and verbal tasks. I will usually start an English class by reading from our textbook, starting a class discussion, and then having the students partake in some independent writing time. This blend of all three tasks makes the class go by smoothly and keeps the students' attention. I can also more easily assess a student's progress based on their participation and their strengths based on how they respond to each teaching method."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I think the best way to deliver a lesson is to include variety in the plan. I would like to build lesson plans that include quizzes, some physical movement, independent reading and writing time, as well as group discussions. Once I start working as a teacher, I plan to incorporate these teaching methods into most lessons."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Over my ten years as an educator, I am confident that I have created excellent learning plans for students of all learning styles. I like to mix my lessons up so that nothing becomes stale or mundane. My lessons include incorporating outdoor time, field trips, guest speakers, group discussions, and more."
