Interview question for 5th or 6th grade
Hi, all!!! Well,,Ive finally been able to sub for a bit, and have a job interview for an elementary school within the district Ive been subbing in.(But have not subbed at this school) My interview is next tuesday, and they are hiring a 3rd grade, 5th and 6th grade teacher. I have student teaching experience with 7th and 9th grade,,,but am also certified for elementary. One of the questions that I think I will be asked is how would I set up the reading? I know that primary grades tend to use reading groups or can have reading/literacy centers and all, but what do you do for 5th and 6th? I think if asked this question of how I would set up the reading portion of the class,,should I answer it like this: First I would assess the students and see what their reading needs are and what they lack ,,I like the idea of grouping students by their interests. Maybe have 3 or 4 groups. 1 group reads a certain book, the 2nd a different book, and so on. Or do 5th and 6th grade teachers just integrate english/language arts/and reading into one? Im not sure how I would set up a 5th or 6th grade class subject wise. I am used to having one subject like geography or history to teach to 4 different classes in one day. I really need help, lol. I will be a first year teacher once I land a job.Thanks for ANY advice!!!!
