During my student teaching, any observation from admin was informal and not scheduled. While I’m sure all eyes were on me, they never gave any direct feedback. I have a second interview for a teaching position that involves modeling a lesson. The entire admin team will be there, plus the grade level head (whose class I’m teaching). I’m a little nervous & have a few questions. I received the lesson plan and was asked if I’d like to observe the day before (I said I’d love too). Is this typical to offer to observe first? Is it going to look good or bad to observe ahead of time? Any tips? I have questions about the lesson, but don’t want to sound stupid. It looks like their structure/pacing is a tad different than what I’m used too and references some charts I’m not familiar with. Should I follow the same routine as the teacher so it doesn’t throw the students off? How should I introduce myself? It mentions celebration (modeling and they celebrate) and sharing on rotation. I’m not really sure what that’s supposed to look like and can vary widely. Unless it simply means they are modeling how to share. I will detail more on the lesson from what they sent me. I’ll also add the rubric/notes format that I would use to evaluate since it’s the end of a unit.
